Jewish studies goes online
The London School of Jewish Studies is joining forces with Rabbi Chaim Brovender's WebYeshiva.org to run interactive online courses.
In the virtual classroom, students can see, speak to or text their teacher and classmates. "We want to bring our ethos to a wider audience," said LSJS chief executive Dr Raphael Zarum. "Our goal is to offer courses that combine intellectual scholarship with modern relevancy to students beyond our physical campus."
A force in Torah learning, Rabbi Brovender is president of the Jerusalem-based Academy for Torah Initiatives and Directions in Jewish education, Atid.
