Beit Morasha’s Halakhah Program for Women

Ynet has an article (H) about Beit Morasha’s Advanced Halakhah Program for Women. It is a very serious program that does not limit itself to questions about Tohorat ha-Mishpaḥah and is sure to have an influence on the modern religious community in Israel. The curriculum can be found here.

    Unless I’m misreading something, it looks like there’s shiur once a week. How is that at all rigorous?

    It is for women who already have a strong background in Talmud and Halakhah and it is essentially preparing them for “semicha” examinations.

    I guess if it’s just about information dumping, you don’t need much shiur. But what about developing conceptual models, talking about methods of pesak, understanding the nuances of the different positions, etc.? Seems to me like you’d need more shiur time. Any idea how this compares to other places preparing students for rabbanut(-type) exams?

    Midreshet Lindenbaum also has a program (here) that is very comprehensive. From some discussions on Facebook I was trying to figure out any difference between the two programs, it may be in who are the students. I am not sure.
