For the ninth time, Jewish students from a number of universities enjoyed a week-long hands-on Yeshiva learning experience in North Miami Beach, Florida with top Chabad educators.
The 9th annual Miami Torah Experience took place in North Miami Beach, Florida Dec 21-Dec 29, 2017 with over 20 participants from various universities across the country.
The program offered a hands-on opportunity to explore classical texts chavrusa-style in Chassidus, Talmud and Chumash, which was the first opportunity for many of the the participants to explore the depth of Judaism.
Students were treated to wonderful classes from noted scholars such as Rabbis Mendy Fellig, Yisroel Geisinsky, Feivish Dalfin, Simcha Gotlieb, Levi Friedman, Chay Amar, Velvel Lispkier, Yosef Marlow, Leibel Schapiro, Yitzhak Schochet, Eli Smith, Yitzhak Teitelbaum, and Dr. Laz.
They also had plenty of time to participate in fun exiting recreational activities such as kayaking, jet skiing, beach volley ball, biking, bowling and speed boating in the Florida alligator swamps.
“Participants left the program on a high and full of enthusiasm, and many have vowed to return to spend time full time in yeshiva at a later time in their lives after being exposed to such interesting ideas and concepts,” said the organizer, Rabbi Immanuel Storfer. “It was inspiring spending a week around such sincere individuals who usually spent hours asking questions way past the time the official classes ended. A few of the students extended their trip and spent part of their break in our regular year long program and have vowed to return in the future during their next break.”
The Miami Torah Experience is a project of Chabad Lubavitch of Florida and is subsidized by the Chabad on Campus International Foundation.
