Our year-long programming is broken up into two separate semesters. Our second semester will run from January 2022 – May 2022. TOS is a hybrid program of online and in-person programming.
Students will be required to fill out a simple application for the second semester program.
Students must commit to regular attendance for both in-person events and online seminars. Additionally, participants will be expected to carefully prepare the assigned readings for their classes. This is a selective program with a limited number of spots. As such, we expect enrolled students to meet these requirements. Students who are unable may be asked to leave the program.
Online Seminars: Our online seminars cover a range of topics focusing on key aspects of contemporary Jewish political life and the modern moral condition. Our seminars will be held over Zoom four times over six weeks, between Jan 30th and March 4th. We will be offering two seminars:
- Faith and the Search for Meaning in the Modern Age with R’ Yitzchak Blau (Sun, 1:30-2:45 pm)
- Great Moments of Leadership in Israeli History: How Words Formed the Jewish Nation with Dr. Daniel Polisar (Thurs, 1:30-2:45 pm)
Students may enroll in one of these seminars. Exact dates for classes TBD.
After Pesach (April 24th till the end of May), we will be running a mini-series about contemporary issues in Western politics and campus life. All participants will be enrolled in that mini-series.
We will also host a number of in-person events. The tentative dates are as follows:
- Either middle or end of February (Date TBD)-Seminar Meeting + Lecture
- Shabbaton (date TBD)
- May 13th – Final Semester Event
A delicious meal will be served at every in-person event.
