S.E.M. Torah for Parshat Acharei Mot

Please click here to listen to S.E.M. Torah for this week.

For more S.E.M. Torah, please click here.
 
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!

All Night Mishmar

With all the Adar Fun we’ve had this week, we have not forgotten the true meaning of Adar and where our true passions lie. “Regular shiurim” have been held all week (though nothing is “regular” at SFW!) and, last night, we had an All Night Mishmar. The girls learned non-stop from 8:00 PM (beginning with Rav Leibowitz's shiur) through davening k'vatikin at 5:30 AM! Kol hakavod to our all-nighters!! The girls, on their own initiative, extended our usual Thursday late-night into an all-night learning mishmar with chaburot and divrei Torah given by the girls!

 
Yasher Koach and thank you to Yael Steinberg (SFW ’14) and Kayla Zeitz (SFW ’14) for the initiative and planning! Thank you too to our staff members who joined them for all or part of the night:
Miriam Barth (SFW ’10, ‘11)

Aviva Lyons (SFW ’09)
Rav Rafi Rosenblum  
Aviah Saltzman
Melanie Simon (SFW ’10)
Dina Turk (SFW ’10, ‘11)
 
A special kol hakavod to the following girls who gave divrei Torah and Chaburot all night….

Ellana Herbert
Tova Hirt
