Yesod Year One/Year Two
The World of the Bible/The World of the Rabbis
Yesod (which means “foundation”) is the centerpiece of the Tauber program. This two-year curriculum is designed to impart knowledge of the central Jewish texts, thinkers, and ideas. Each trimester consists of eight sessions. Classes are in English, taught in an interactive style by Bay Area scholars. Combining lectures with hevruta (traditional partner study); Yesod creates a true community of learners.
