Tanya: (Two levels depending on which Perakim students have already studied.)

The academic goal of the teaching Tanya , the "תורה שבכתב"  of Chassidus, is to cover with basic Peshat all of  the first chelek (Likutei Amorim) within the four years of High School. The chassidishe goal is to further students’ understanding of Chabad Chassidus by illuminating the in-depth connection between lessons in Tanya and reaching closeness with Hashem, and by teaching Tanya’s practical applications of character refinement.  The course will include an extensive introduction to לימוד החסידות.
