The Graduate Program in Advanced Talmudic Studies (GPATS) is a two-year master's program that provides women an opportunity for post-college, high-level study to further their growth in Torah knowledge and skills. This program creates an elite cadre of female scholars of Talmud and Halakha who will serve as leaders and role models for the Orthodox Jewish community. After completing the two-year program and taking two additional Tanach classes at the Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies or Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration, the women will receive a master's degree in biblical and Talmudic interpretation.
Students also receive pedagogic training, opportunities to engage synagogues around the country as scholars in residence, and dedicated resources for placement opportunities of significant positions within Jewish education. A sample listing of our internships follows.
