WebYeshiva and London School of Jewish Studies announce partnership

JERUSALEM (Press Release)– WebYeshiva.org, the first fully-interactive Torah study program on the Web, and the London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS) announce on Monday a new partnership. The partnership will broaden WebYeshiva.org and LSJS’s reach to students based in the UK, Western Europe, and South Africa.

The partnership between the London School of Jewish Studies and WebYeshiva.org is aimed to provide students with high-level, interactive learning that is intellectually rigorous, inspiring and relevant to modern life, regardless of physical location. The London School of Jewish Studies is a vibrant Modern Orthodox center of Jewish learning based in London that has educated thousands of students since its inception, over 150 years ago.  WebYeshiva.org was founded to enrich the lives of Jewish students all around the world by making Torah learning accessible to anyone, anywhere.

“The partnership joins two great Torah institutions together with the similar goal of providing high-level Jewish studies to students all around the world,” says Rabbi Jeffrey Saks, Founding Director of The Academy for Torah Initiatives and Directions in Jewish Education (ATID), parent organization of WebYeshiva.org. “LSJS and WebYeshiva.org, together, can enhance Torah education in English-speaking countries across the globe – we are bridging the geographical gap and uniting culturally diverse students on one platform.”

As part of the partnership, The London School of Jewish Studies will have two esteemed educators teaching courses on WebYeshiva.org’s online site. Dr. Raphael Zarum, Chief Executive and Head of Faculty at LSJS, will be teaching a course entitled “Darwin & the Tree of Life” and Lindsey Taylor-Guthartz, LSJS Teaching Fellow, will be administering a course on the “Book of Ezekiel.” Both courses are seven weeks long and begin on the 24th and 25th of January 2011 respectively. The course times are compatible with students based in the UK, countries all over Western Europe, South Africa and the United States.

“Our goal was to offer courses that combine intellectual scholarship with modern relevancy to students beyond the confines of the LSJS walls,” says Dr. Raphael Zarum.

WebYeshiva.org utilizes the latest video-conferencing technology to offer real-time, interactive classes by outstanding Rabbis and teachers.  The organization was founded by Rabbi Chaim Brovender of ATID, an organization dedicated to shape and develop the future of educational leadership in the Jewish community.   For more information, visit www.webyeshiva.org.
