  • Yeshiva Gedolah of Yeshiva of Greater Washington-Tiferes Gedaliah

    The Yeshiva Gedolah is designed to help the bochur who is looking to advance in learning, develop an understanding of Torah study, and experience true Ahavas HaTorah. Under the guidance of experienced Rebbeim, the Yeshiva Gedolah provides an encouraging environment to help each bochur fulfill his potential and grow into a proud, confident, upstanding Ben Torah.
    • The Yeshiva's iyun seder places a major focus on talmidim developing their own learning skills, rather than merely being able to echo a shiur. The engaging shiurim emphasize and teach the analytical skills required to develop self-sufficiency in learning.
    • The Yeshiva's bekius seder stresses clarity and retention. The pace allows talmidim to cover more ground, yet spend time to achieve proper understanding. Talmidim are encouraged to say shakla v'taria weekly, demonstrating mastery of the material.
    • In addition to the yeshiva sedarim, regular shiurim are given on a variety of Hashkafa topics enabling talmidim to meet the challenges of today’s society, and cultivate the confidence, clarity, and direction needed to navigate these transformative years of life.
    In all, the Rebbeim work to develop personal relationships with the talmidim, which are especially significant at the important crossroads of each talmid's life. The Yeshiva is especially proud that these extraordinary relationships continue well beyond the years in Yeshiva.
