A critique of Talmud study in high schools

I do not believe that the situation described in this article is as true in North American Yeshiva High Schools as it is in Israel, nevertheless, it does raise some questions about the curriculum in our schools.
For those of you who are not familiar with the author, Uri Orbach is a popular religious radio personality here in Israel and something of a humorist who focuses on religious culture. See, for example, selections from his ulai b'Shabat yizriku sukariyot.
Hag Same'ah!


  1. Also check out the response by Efrat Shapira-Rosenberg,7340,L-3378813,00.html

  2. Certainly an interesting take on girls' education. Again, my sense is that this is true more in Israeli "Daati Leumi" schools than it is in American "Modern Orthodox" schools.
