Webinars

In October 2013 «Sefer» announced the starting of the new project that allows to take part in courses on Jewish Studies during the whole academic year not leaving the house. The project has been made possible with the generous support of Genesis Philanthropy Group, President’s Grant Foundation, JOODS Humanitair Fond, L.A. Pincus Fund for Jewish Education in the Diaspora, Israel and UJA Federation of New York
Webinar is a new educational form that allows students from different countries to take part in lectures and language courses. It has minimum requirements (such as stabile Internet connection and microphone). We use the system, which is extremely easy and gives to the lecturers the possibility to demonstrate photos, illustrations and texts and to interact with the students.

The registration for the language groups in the 2017/2018 academic year is closed.
