*Shivti was founded by Beth Medrash Govoha in 2014 to share intensive learning opportunities to those outside the physical walls of the Yeshiva. Participants experience genuine growth in learning.
The Shivti curriculum starts with in-depth Iyun and ends with Halacha L'maaseh's practical applications, incorporating the quality and methodology that are the hallmarks of Beth Medrash Govoha. The weekly Shivti booklet features carefully curated content, clearly presenting exactly what the Sugya is, what will be learned, and which specific path is optimal to take through the Sugya. Shivti learning typically takes place within a chaburah setting, led by the local Rav, similar to the classic Yeshiva learning seder. The goal is to entirely engage the participants, so that they emerge each week with great clarity, both in the sometimes difficult lomdus and in the real world knowledge of Halacha and Minhag L'maaseh.
