Academic Calendar

 

 

 

 

Shapell’s follows a traditional yeshiva calendar with

approximately nine months of learning a year. Our year begins on Rosh Chodesh Elul – one month before Rosh Hashana – with the six-week Elul Zman. After a three-week intersession, our Winter Zman begins on Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan. This learning term runs until two weeks before Pesach. At Shapell’s we divide the winter into two parts with the “Mid-Winter Zman” usually beginning in mid-January. After a month-long Pesach break, our two-month Spring Zman and six-week Summer Zman complete the academic year.

 

New students can join for a zman, a semester, a year, or two years, and are welcome to join at any of the five start dates each year*. For more information or to learn about other short-term opportunities, contact Rabbi Jeremy Block.
