Post Pesach Program: April 9 - May 17, 2018
The Post Pesach Program is a great opportunity for students who are completing Shana Bet to earn college credit immediately following Pesach while experiencing the unique Yeshiva University campus environment.
In the morning, students will have the opportunity to learn with some of our esteemed Roshei Yeshiva while continuing their Torah studies in a thriving Beit Midrash. In the afternoon, students can take up to two classes (three credits each) offered by both Yeshiva College and the Sy Syms School of Business. Special programming, fall class registration, and academic advisement will be arranged as well.
If you are currently a Shana Bet student and have already been accepted to YU, you are eligible for the Post Pesach Program. If you have not yet applied to Yeshiva University, you must first apply to YU and be accepted to enroll in the program.

Course Descriptions (more available shortly)
Jeremiah - Text based study of the book of Jeremiah focusing on matters of history, theology, grammar, and poetics. Special emphasis will be placed on politics (domestic and international) and religion as they were during Jeremiah’s lifetime and how these factors help us appreciate the distinctive messages of the book as a whole.
Management in a Global Environment - This is an introductory course in which we will survey a broad range of issues utilizing textbook information, cases, readings, and a review of the academic literature. We will also spend time discussing clashing views on controversial issues in management to help you understand the dynamics of managing in the real world. We will examine many components of organizations including but not limited to environment, strategy, culture, tasks, people and outputs.
Business and Jewish Law - The course will explore Jewish business ethics and consider how Jewish business ethics differs from secular ethical theories. We will grapple with the question, “How can I be a good person and a good businessperson?” as well as the implications of the notion “Greed is good.” We will also consider other areas of halacha that frequently arise in the workplace. We will do this primarily by considering case studies. Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
- Identify possible ethical problems in business contexts.
- Apply general philosophical and halakhic principles to actual complex cases in business ethics.
- Distinguish between Jewish and secular approaches to moral problems.
- Generate innovative ideas for programs and practices to solve ethical problems.
- Think independently and rationally about contemporary moral problems.
- Critically evaluate the morality of the American free-market system.
- Effectively communicate one’s position on issues pertaining to Jewish business ethics.
- Of course, the most important goal is to help students become morally responsible, ethical, and outstanding citizens who live up to and exemplify Torah values.
