Online Course in the Laws of Shabbat

August 28, 2011 | by The Aish Academy

Self-paced, user-friendly, multi-media classes.

Everyone knows there are literally thousands of halachic questions than can arise on Shabbat. Mastery of these laws is necessary to a proper and meaningful observance of Shabbat. The key is to learn the principles of the 39 main categories of Shabbat labor, since all halachot essentially derive from those same original principles.

Yet who has the time and resources to possibly study all this?

Enter The Aish Academy, the website for people who want to take the next step in their Torah learning and observance. You may be new to Jewish observance and need to “catch up,” or you may be an old-timer who wants to learn in a more systematic, comprehensive way.

The Aish Academy delivers the principles of Shabbos – all in a thorough, step-by-step, user-friendly fashion.

This course will give you the confidence to handle a myriad of situations that may come up:

  • preparing food on Shabbat
  • medical issues on Shabbat
  • common cases in your kitchen
  • personal hygiene on Shabbat
  • heating up food
  • opening packages

For a self-check of understanding, this course has interactive online testing: 8-10 questions based on the class material. Students automatically receive a test score, along with the correct answers. And all your test results are stored in your personal online account, so you can track your progress as you study the material.

Each Aish Academy class is also available either online or as a user-friendly PDF version, so you can print out the material and study at your own pace – anywhere, anytime.

And finally, there are dynamic video segments that present common scenarios, and help you work through the practical halacha in each case.

What’s the cost?

Typically an online course would cost about $100. But Aish Academy has been given a generous grant to offer its entire selection of courses for the low price of $18 a month.
