Smicha Week

ALEPH Ordination Program Intensive Study Week – aka “Smicha Week”

Many Blessings – Stay Safe and Healthy!

An amazing opportunity to spend an intensive, spiritually uplifting, intellectually stimulating week of learning with your fellow AOP students!

  • Study with members of the VAAD and special guest teachers. Meet informally with them and your Director of Studies.
  • Surround yourself with constant hevruta, in small classes and informal groups. Earn 2 units of credit for full participation in the week’s learning.
  • Soar with daily student-led davenen! Sign up to lead or co-lead, and to receive feedback on new approaches from ALEPH teachers.

NOTE: Smicha Week is open to ordination students of the ALEPH Ordination Program (AOP) who are currently enrolled, as well as candidates whose application is in process. AOP students attend Smicha Week as part of their curriculum requirements. If you are a candidate for one of our smicha/ordination programs, a letter of invitation from Rabbi Leila Gal Berner, Dean of Students, is prerequisite for registering for Smicha Week.

ALEPH musmachim and OHALAH members are welcome to join us at Smicha Week at a discounted rate. If you would like to register, please call Ming at (215) 247-9700 x210.
