Tiyul to Derech Avot

On Thursday, the entire student body went on a tiyul to Kfar Etzion and Biyar. We had a great time bonding and getting to know each other and, at the same time, appreciating the beautiful land that we have been given! The tiyul ended with a wonderful barbecue that the girls themselves - with the help of their shana bet friends - prepared!

S.E.M. Torah for Parshat Ki Teitzei

Please click here to listen to S.E.M. Torah for Parshat Ki Teitzei from Rav Gershon Turetsky.

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!

Review Halachot of Shmittat Kesafim

With the end of the Shmitta year quickly approaching, it may be worthwhile to review the halachot of the cancellation of debts (שמיטת כספים). It applies to women and men in Israel and in Chutz Laaretz 

If you are interested in reviewing these halachot please click here.

Please bear in mind that this is a very brief review intended for SFW students and alumni and is not intended as an in-depth analysis of the halacha and hashkafa of this important topic. If you have any questions about whether you need to write a pruzbol, please contact a competent halachik authority.
