Al HaPerek is an innovative. guided Bible study course offered by Matan.
Matan’s Al Haperek: The Worldwide Online Weekly Tanach Learning ProgramFor various reasons, my study partner and I had gotten a few weeks behind, and the material is very difficult. We meet once a week at Matan, and we needed at least another session. We're also having more trouble following the prophetic warnings and comforts of Yeshayahu than we had when we studied the earlier books, Joshua, Judges, Samuel and Kings, which are narratives, stories about mostly familiar Biblical characters. I started to have trouble keeping up in the second part of Kings, because my Bible study background is very weak. And the kings mentioned were all strangers to me. Their names got all mixed up in my head. It became even harder to remember who was who than to fit names to my students faces. (That was one of the reasons I felt the time had come to leave teaching. When I had taught small remedial groups, it was much easier for me, and I'm a better remedial teacher than regular classroom teacher.)
Learn two chapters a week and in five years finish one entire cycle of Nach! Join us this year and learn Melachim and Yeshayahu.
Once a week, Al Haperek participants receive an emailed sheet containing the weekly material which guides in depth, creative and enlightening learning of two chapters a week of Nach.
At the completion of each book, a yom iyun is held in Matan with lectures given by some of the finest educators in Israel.
Additionally, a short weekly shiur is sent with the sheets to enrich the learning and create a more personal connection between those who work on the program and those who participate in it.
Al Haperek's framework is appropriate for individual learners, for joint-learning with children or a spouse, by all ages and on all levels.
We ordered their halumi salad and shared it, including the delicious rolls. It was a perfect meal and we had no problems studying a few chapters there.
