S.E.M. Torah is a series of brief divrei Torah delivered by various members of the faculty of Sha’alvim for Women.

S.E.M. stands (good-humoredly) for "Squeezing Every Minute" and represents an important philosophy at SFW: every minute counts and every minute can be used productively. Torah must be learned deeply and profoundly on the highest levels possible. However, even when you find that you have only a few moments, we believe that opportunities - like listening to this S.E.M. Torah - are always available…. if you know where to look!

Rabbi Larry Rothwachs comes to SFW

SFW had the zechut of hosting Rabbi Larry Rothwachs, Rabbi of Congregation Beth Aaron in Teaneck NJ (and father of Shani Rothwachs, SFW '15). Rabbi Rothwachs spoke about the requirement to eat the Korban Pesach "b'chipazon" and why that can be, under the right circumstances, to be a proper avenue in avodat Hashem

We are grateful to Rabbi Rothwachs for taking time out of his busy schedule to share words of Torah and transpiration at SFW.
