Tanakh Teaching Certificate Program

Our exciting new Masters-level program of academic courses will focus on Teaching Tanakh in the Diaspora classroom, and equipping teachers with advanced knowledge and practical skills.

Students can choose from these asynchronous online courses in English during the academic year 2022-2023. After one academic year, Certificate program participants who have earned 15 credits will receive a Tanakh Teaching Certificate from Herzog College.

Full Academic Courses

Each full course will require 1.5 hours of study per week and earn 3 academic credits. The total fee for each course is $75.

Each course is comprised of 12 lessons of which 10 or 11 are asynchronous (online materials for self-study with questions and discussions) plus a weekly assignment for you to complete (but no tests). Each course also has either one or two Zoom lessons. All Zoom lessons take place on Sundays at 8:00pm Israel time.

Please note that Rav Daniel Wolf’s “Method & Meaning: Herzog-Style Tanakh” course is compulsory for the Tanakh Teaching Certificate.
