Yarchei Kallah-Frequently Asked Questions



Yarchei Kallah is an annual gathering of businessman and Rabbonim, who utilize their vacation time to enrich their knowledge of Torah and bask in the light of Gedolei Yisroel, with a focus on business-related areas of Halacha.


The Yarchei Kallah begins on Motzei Shabbos, January 6,2018 at 8:30 pm and concludes on Monday evening, January 8,2018 at approximately 8:30 pm.


The Yarchei Kallah will be hosted at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Princeton, NJ.


This event attracts participants from across North America and beyond who represent the broad diversity of Jewish communities.  Attendees include lawyers, accountants, successful businessmen, nursing home owners-administrators, physicians , and educators.   

Why is this Yarchei Kallah Different?

The Shivti Yarchei Kallah is unique in that it strives to emulate the yeshiva-style of Iyun HaTorah, by toiling in learning the actual sources of a sugya, and working it all the way through to the modern-day application of the practical Halacha.   While the shiurim are an integral part of the Yarchei Kallah, the main focus is on the actual chavrusa-style learning.


Program details

Program begins on Motzei Shabbos with an opening-Pesicha shiur.

This year’s shiur will be given by our scholar in residence Rav Asher Weiss from Yerushalayim.

The next two days (Sunday and Monday) are divided into morning and afternoon learning sedorim.

Each morning, a brief “opening shiur” introducing the limud will be given by Rabbi Yosef Kushner.

Following the shiur, participants break off into pairs of chavrusos for the seder limud. At the end of the seder, an in-depth shiur is delivered by one of the Magidei Shiur.

On Monday afternoon, a comprehensive halacha shiur will be delivered by one of the Magidei Shiur carefully structured to highlight all practical aspects of the sugya.


While we do encourage you to bring along a friend/ chavrusa, we have arranged for “chavrusa brokers” who will match you with a partner that meets your specific needs.


All shiurim are delivered in English. Some of the divrei chizuk from the Roshei Yeshiva of Beth Medrash Govoha may have some Yiddish interspersed with English.

Translation ear pods are available for foreign language speakers.

Shiur for Women

A live tele-conference shiur delivered by an inspirational speaker will be broadcast for the wives of participants on Sunday evening. Call-in information will be made available at the Yarchei Kallah.
