Seder Hayom:At Yeshiva Gedolah Ohr Chodosh, the Seder Hayom reflects the Yeshiva’s deft approach to chinuch. There is enough variety and dynamism in the daily schedule to keep the Bochurim occupied and engaged in their learning. The first seder begins with a Shiur Hachana by the Menahel focused on clarity. The basic components of the first Seder are laid simply and clearly, designating with precision the exact parameters of the morning’s learning. Armed with the proper foundation, the Bochurim learn and prepare for the Shiur Iyun from the Rosh HaYeshiva. The Shiur Iyun is an in-depth and comprehensive shiur, focused on and fusing sophisticated lomdus with clarity and raising the level of the Bochurim in learning. The Mussar Seder is an animated and exciting as well as integral part of the day. After Mincha, there is a Mussar Seder where small groups of Bochurim learn together with a Rebbe and highlighted by a weekly Shmuess from the Menahel. During the second seder, the Yeshiva follows the Vharev Na program as a framework that uses the power of chazara to bring out the inherent exhilaration of knowing a limud well. The choice of masechta and pace are designed so that completing the masechta is an attainable goal. The night seder is spent learning sugyos in halachah which gives the oilam a chance to gain practical knowledge while also giving greater appreciation for the breadth of Torah. This creative and challenging seder hayom is part of what makes the learning in Yeshiva Gedolah Ohr Chodosh so special.
