As one of the components to the novel approach to bekiyus learning, talmidim participate in several “retzufos sedarim” throughout the year. Aside from the delicious fare that is provided before and after the seder, the primary goal is for talmidim to learn completely uninterrupted for an extended period of time. This past week, both 12th grade shiurim remained in Yeshiva after a full day of learning and engaged in the first retzufah seder of the year, learning uninterrupted, some for 3 hours straight. The seder concluded with a delicious seudah, Divrei Torah, singing and dancing.
“Much of the success we are seeing from our talmidim has to do with the time and energy our senior Rabbeim, Rabbi Yehuda Orlansky and Rabbi Yonason Sprung, expend for their shiurim,” commented Rabbi Yossi Bennett, S’gan Menahel, “They give over lev v’nefesh for our talmidim and the bochurim feel that.”
Rabbi Yonasan Sprung added, “My goal is that my talmidim gain skills in lumdos and a geshmak in learning during our iyun shiur, and another geshmak in mastery of a masechta during our bekiyus shiur.”
The talmidim from both shiurim took a trip a few weeks ago to visit Rabbi Dovid Neuman, the mastermind behind this groundbreaking movement, and inaugurated the program for this z’man.
B’siyata d’shmaya, talmidim are learning b’hasmodah rabah and loving every minute of it!
