HOW IT WORKS

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The program was designed for Bnei Torah who want to motivate themselves with an accountability program to improve their learning. It is open to men over the age of 22.
With so many commitments – learning and otherwise – it is easy to neglect, fall behind or rush through learning Chumash and Rashi. Many have found that committing to a structured program with accountability is an excellent way to stay on schedule and raise their level of learning and retention.
While we realize the modest stipends are not the reason participants will join the program, it adds a level of formality which we believe will help participants stay committed to the program.
It is a multiple-choice test, in Lashon Hakodesh, on that week’s Chumash and Rashi. (There will not be questions on ‘Dikduk’ Rashis.) The multiple-choice format will make the test easy to take and easy to administer.
Participants will receive an email each Motzaei Shabbos with a link to take the test online. The tests must be submitted by 10am Sunday morning. Tests will be graded and reported to you as well as entered into our database. (There will be a PDF option included in the email for those whose internet filters will not allow the online test.) Of course, all info is confidential.
Participants who maintain an 80% average over each sefer will be paid a stipend at the end of the sefer.
Some generous donors have provided start-up funds for the stipends for Sefer Shemos. We are looking for additional donors to maintain the funding for the stipends.
The only other requirement besides maintaining an average of 80% is to learn each pasuk and Rashi during the week of that parsha. Specifically, the Chumash and Rashi can be learned any time from the previous Shabbos up until the test is distributed on Motzaei Shabbos. This will prevent those who know/remember the Chumash and Rashi from before from simply taking the test without learning it that week.
Practice tests will be added weekly
