Ma’ayanot Scholars Experience Day of Study at Touro College

Students in Ma’ayanot’s Scholars Program—a voluntary extracurricular program for students interested in engaging in Torah lishmah activities throughout the school year—visited Touro’s beit midrash for a day of incredible Torah learning. The day began with opening remarks from Dr. Marian Stoltz-Loike, Dean Of Lander College, which were followed by shiurim offered by numerous members of the Touro faculty: Dr. Susan Wasserman presented on “Introducing Avraham…Moshe…or Not: Why Some Biblical Personalities are Introduced and Others Are Not;” Rabbi Tzvi Flaum gave a shiur titled “An Introduction to Jewish Medical Ethics and the Doctor’s Right to Heal;” Dr. David Luchins shared a Jewish perspective on the 2016 Presidential election; and Rabbi Dovid Goldwasser outlined practical ways one can achieve personal growth during the Omer.

In addition to a full roster of shiurim, students also heard from English Professor Sarah Rindner-Blum, a Ma’ayanot alumna ‘02, on how Ma’ayanot shaped her identity and prepared her for her work in academia.
