Commitment:

What level of learning do I have to be on? 

A basic working understanding of Hebrew and background in Jewish text learning.

What level of religiosity do I need to be?

While anyone can join regular WebYeshiva.org courses, part of the criteria for acceptance to the Halacha Mastery Program is a commitment to Halacha (shomer shabbat, shomer kashrut, etc).

How much time per week will this take me?

Each class is an hour. Outside class time depends on a student’s level. Students should assume they will spend at least 2 hours a week per class including the class and prep/review time. Additionally, if needed each class has an hour long optional prep shiur (also available through the archives) which helps students go through the material.

What happens when a student finishes the entire program?

Students who complete all six courses receive a certificate.

What are the requirements? 

Accepted students may take classes without doing tests. However, students who wish to graduate the program and receive a certificate must 1) To attend each class in a course either live or by recording. 2) Complete and pass a midterms and finals for each course.

Do I need to hand things in on time?

Preferably but not required. Most students are married with kids, have full time jobs and other responsibilities so it is understood that everyone is on a different timetable. There are no penalties for late hand ins.

Do I have access to teachers outside of class?

Yes. Mostly by email.

What about a chevruta?

We encourage students to learn with each other and will help connect students with possible options for chevruta study. Students will also be added to a Google forum for each class where participants may connect and ask questions.
