Frisch Senior Mini-Courses Begin

Senior learning is still going strong at Yeshivat Frisch! End-of-year senior mini-courses began last week, with more than 20 amazing options taught by the talented Frisch faculty. Academic Jewish and general studies courses included: Rambam’s Introduction to Torah Shebe’al Peh, Halachic Mythbusters, Israel Advocacy, “The Quarrel” movie and discussion (based on the classic work by Yiddish writer Chaim Grade), Jewish Jokes (and their history), Intro to Italian, Songwriting Workshop, Understanding Diabetes, Yiddish: Not a Language, a Lifestyle, and many more.

Some mini-courses touched on areas of wisdom that will hopefully last a lifetime, such as Dealing with Life’s Curveballs, Life Lessons of the Lubavitcher Rebbe and Navigating Relationships.

Yet other mini-courses were hands-on, such as Dorm Room Cooking, Makerspace Projects, Knitting and Chemistry Demos. In addition, one senior mini-course delved into hilchot shechita. On the final day of the mini-course, the instructor (Frisch business teacher and certified shochet Dr. Len Fuld), gave a live shechita demonstration with a real chicken.

“We are proud to be offering an incredible selection of exciting mini-courses this year,” said Frisch mini-courses coordinator Danielle Tamir. “You name it, it’s on the schedule—there is truly something for everyone.”
