Who is Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim?
Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim and its parent organization Shema Yisrael Torah Network have been doing an unbelievable mitzvot by creating revolutionary programs that allow everyone to learn Halacha. There have been bringing their Jewish brothers and sisters back to Torah and have been teaching Torah for over 20 years. Their now famous Shulchan Aruch Project has been responsible for teaching tens of thousands of Jews how to be Jews. It was designed from the ground up to support a Jew on their PERSONAL journey into the depths of Judaism – it doesn’t matter if they had been studying Torah since they were born or if they were making their first steps.
Pirchei Shoshanim was the founder of the tremendous distance learning program for Smicha Ordination. This program has produced thousands of Rabbis over the years.
Pirchei Shoshanim has also been recognized as an Endorser of Rabbis into the Armed Forces Chaplaincy Program since 2007. Due to the training and life experience of their Rabbis the DoD ranks Pirchei Shoshanim as one of the best Jewish Endorsers that they can depend on for bringing them quality Rabbis to become Chaplain’s. Pirchei Shoshanim is now a member of the National Conference on the Ministry to the Armed Forces as well.
Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim can be very proud of their incredible achievements because, amazingly, the entire program is done online and is the first of its kind. They stand alone in this remarkable endeavor.
Pirchei Shoshanim now has an accredited College Credit Program providing meaningful learning opportunities for individuals who are seeking to develop and expand their knowledge of, and commitment to, Jewish law. The program is designed to provide structure and a sense of accomplishment in the study of Jewish law, offering comprehensive courses on extensive topics. Participants study at their own pace, under the mentoring of qualified Instructors/Rabbis. Pirchei Shoshanim, a National CCRS member since July 2013, offers a unique learning experience. It was founded to expand the study of Jewish Law to all students, regardless of religious background, location or circumstance. The program provides distance learning courses that focus on high level learning in a self-study format. Lessons on various topics are sent twice a week and are available in several languages including English, Hebrew, French and Spanish. Course materials are accessible to educators around the globe in many locations including: Moscow, Budapest, Johannesburg, Paris, London, and Buenos Aires.
Participants study materials both in print and multi-media and learn at their own pace under the guidance of qualified instructors and scholars. Progress is tracked and monitored through teacher-student interactions. At the conclusion of the lessons, students are given study guides to help them prepare for assessments which are given in proctored situations.
Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim has had too many accomplishments to list here and have had a significant impact on the Jewish people around the world. They are now prepared to put all their resources into assisting Gentiles in learning Torah as well. They want to help us learn how God wants us to live as Gentiles. Noahide Nations is very proud and honored to be a partner with Pirchei Shoshanim in this historic and monumental task. May Hashem bless our efforts and bless all the students who will soon be benefiting from this Torah learning experience of a lifetime.
