Centered around our well-stocked Beit Midrash, Kedma has tons of formal and informal learning opportunities.
Note that the ones listed below are in addition to all the learning opportunities provided by JLIC, Hillel, Chabad, Meor, and other organizations.
Thanks to the hard work of the Education Chair, Kedma has many scholars-in-residence every semester. Whether they come for only an afternoon or they stay for Shabbat, they're a mainstay of the Kedma experience. Recent scholars-in-residence include Dr. Yael Ziegler, Rav Yitzchak Blau, Rabbi Dov Linzer, Dr. Erica Brown, Rabbi Menachem Leibtag, Rabbi Ezra and Dr. Rivka Press Schwartz, and many more!
The London Kollel (sponsored by Rebbetzin London in memory of Rabbi Yechiel London zt"l) is a college learning program where students commit to learn a certain number of hours a week in exchange for monetary and spiritual schar. The whole kollel learns together once a week, and it's a great way to get involved!
TUESDAY NIGHT TORAH
Tuesday-night Torah (TNT) is a beloved learning event where we gather for free pizza and a selection of student-led chaburot on topics of their choice. Talk to the Education Chair if you'd like to give one!
Every Wednesday night, a group of students gather for an in-depth shiur on a Tanakh topic and an accompanying dessert. Recent topics include Melakhim, Ovadya, Iyov, and Tehillim.
Kedma has student-led Amud Yomi and Daf Yomi groups. During the semester we would take turns preparing and giving the daf to each other. When corona and summer break came, we would take turns writing summaries for the daf for each other. And since many of us use his shiur to prepare, we decided to sponsor Shabbat Daf 100 of Rav Aryeh Lebowitz's shiur!
Kedma members comprise the strongest contingent to Rav Avigdor Rosensweig's online Gemara Iyun shiur. It meets twice a week on Zoom, and recent masechtot include Gittin, Pesachim, and Shabbat. Check out the shiurim archive on YUTorah!
