Our Program Overview

Gemara Academy has totally transformed my classroom. My students appreciate seeing in front of them a clear map of the day's Gemara, as well as the different forms of learning and review that are consistent in each lesson. Also with Gemara academy our Chavrusa time has become much more efficient and productive with a much heavier load of thoughtful questions from the Talmidim.
