Rabbi Royce (Yerachmiel) Isacowitz would like to introduce you to an initiative to provide high calibre Torah learning to the Sydney community. His goal is to provide learners (adults and children) with skills and tools essential for independent learning. What you can expect:
development of reading, questioning and deduction skills, familiarity with primary sections of Torah; Tanach, Talmud and Halacha, correct utilisation of commentaries, identifying your unique voice in Torah, one-to-one or group student-centred learning, and Bar/Bat Mitzvah lessons and supplementary Jewish education (all levels). His specialist training in the Lithuanian tradition, extensive personal study and learning design skills, combined with a contemporary outlook ensure engaging and effective programs. With the prevalence of information-based or principle-based (receptive) learning, the best way to distinguish knowledge-based Torah learning (productive) is through immersive experience and he is happy to offer trial programs to interested parties. For more information and to discuss this unique opportunity please contact him: 0418 656 688 or email@example.com
