FULL TIME LEARNING

EYAHT offers full-time learning for serious and thinking women looking for intellectual stimulation and personal growth. A well-balanced course schedule provides students with the tools to integrate and apply their Torah knowledge to all aspects of their lives, and skills needed for continued independent learning. Although many students spend a semester or year in the program, EYAHT accommodates those who are able to come for shorter periods of time (a day, week or month). (This privilege is not available for a few weeks during the Elul and pre-Pesach programs—please refer to the introduction of the Application Form for specific dates. For details as to when EYAHT is not in session, please refer to semesters and vacations under "Academic Year" below.)

At EYAHT there is a strong focus on the uniqueness of the Jewish woman and her role in her family, community, and the world at large. Celebrating femininity and the strengths inherent in a woman are emphasized, as is the principle that philosophy and theory can be applied within one's day-to-day living.

EYAHT offers various levels of learning. An individualized schedule is designed for each student, depending on her skills and knowledge upon arrival. These schedules may include classes in more than one level to ensure maximal growth and development. Students may also obtain college credits for completed coursework, provided that the necessary arrangements are made upon arrival.

An introductory program is available under the auspices of the Jewish Women's Educational League. (Details can be found at Jewel4Women). JEWEL, offers classes on the meaning of prayer, women's issues, Jewish philosophy, Jewish history, holidays and mysticism, as well as tours of Israel and Shabbatons. JEWEL provides women with a deeper understanding of their heritage and prepares them for higher learning at EYAHT.

Academic Year for full-time students:

The academic year begins in August/September (Elul). There are breaks scheduled around the Jewish holidays as well as organized trips at various points during the year.

The academic year is divided into three semesters of learning to provide a focus on the holidays which fall into each period. In addition, several weeks preceding each holiday are dedicated to spiritual preparation and learning how to put technical observance into practice. Students learn about the customs related to the holidays, the additional prayers and their meaning, and laws relating to each celebration. This special preparation time provides students with the ability to truly experience each holiday with an intellectual understanding of its meaning and an emotional connection to its holiness.

The semesters and holiday focus are:
Fall:
August/September
(Elul-Tishrei)
Preparation for the High Holidays
Fall/Winter:
October-March
(Cheshvan-Nissan)
Chanukah, Purim and Pesach
Spring/Summer:
April-August (Iyar-Av):
Shavuot and Tisha B'Av.
