Practical halacha, actual exams
OU’s Semichat Chaver program wows students in Rockland, Bergen
For Josh Wertentheil, 37, the weekly class is like no other study he found after graduating from yeshiva.
“It’s much more dynamic,” Mr. Wertentheil said. “It’s much more real.”
For one thing, unlike most Torah study classes, this one includes exams at the end of the semester.
Good news: Mr. Wertentheil passed.
