Over the summer, TABC is proud to offer their students the opportunity to continue to be involved in intensive talmud Torah in a variety of ways. Students may choose to participate in the Summer Learning Initiative by independently learning Gemara Megillah, Sefer Shoftim, or Mishnayot Bava Kamma, Bava Metzia and Bava Batra. Currently, there are over 35 students who have committed to spending their summer being mesayim one of these ambitious areas of learning. Students are set up to learn wherever they are spending their summer.

In addition, recognizing that many TABC students spend their summer locally, shiurim will take place throughout the summer. Every two weeks, students are invited for dinner and a shiur at TABC or at the home of Rabbi Josh Kahn. In the past, these shiurim have attracted upwards of 50 students, and they provide a nice opportunity to keep TABC Torah vibrant throughout the summer months.

The first shiur took place on Tuesday July 23, with 35 students arriving at TABC for dinner and a shiur. After a delicious Dougie’s feast, the students joined Rabbi Yaakov Blau in the Beit Midrash for the opening shiur. Since the summer learning is focusing on Messechet Megillah, Rabbi Blau discussed the topic of Shushan Purim with the students. The program concluded with Mincha and Maariv.
