Our Services

Each school has its own unique programs, target population, and history, as well as its own unique method for teaching Jewish studies, and this is where Lamdeni comes into the picture. Together, in close collaboration with the school administration, Lamdeni generates a customized program for each school that is tailored to its specific needs, values and unique perspective.

Spiral Programs 

With an awareness of the enduring nature of certain topics in Jewish studies that students encounter throughout their academic journey, Lamdeni recommends the creation of progressive tiered spiral study programs spanning all years of study.

These spiral programs enable the pedagogical team to delve deeper into subjects and tailor the content according to the students' proficiency, thereby avoiding repetition.

For instance, Lamdeni proposes developing a spiral program focused on themes like holidays or the weekly Torah portion, incorporating twelve distinct levels aligned with students' capabilities in both planning and delivery.

Professional Development and Empowering Teachers


Teacher Professional Development

Continuous learning and a structured professional development system are essential in numerous fields. In education, they are paramount, given that teachers regularly address inquiries from students dealing with various challenges in their surroundings. As a result, educators need to consistently refresh their approach, not only in the content they deliver to students, and tailoring it to their real-life context, but also in employing teaching methods that resonate with the students.

Teachers' advanced studies help them update their knowledge with new technologies, enrich their skills, and tailor their teaching to the needs of students. These studies enable teachers to stay current with new research and teaching methods. Additionally, advanced studies allow teachers to connect with other educators, learn from them, share their experiences, and adapt to the changing times. With rapidly evolving technology, students think differently and innovatively. Educators must be prepared and equipped with the tools they need to adapt their instruction to meet evolving demands. Not only do curricula change, but so do educational methods, and all educators must stay abreast of the latest trends.


New curricula introduce novel concepts requiring tailored training. Lamdeni recognizes that when exploring advanced studies, preparatory exposure helps teachers adapt to proposed innovations. Their training takes an immersive approach - conveying the ethos unique to new programs. More crucially, successful implementation often depends on building capability through new methodologies and technologies. Lamdeni’s training takes teachers “behind the scenes,” equipping them with the instruments needed to navigate new syllabi. Thereby, teachers internalize reforms conceptually and then practically, fully preparing them to lead classrooms through pedagogical updates. Adaptability remains key as teachers must embrace shifts in skills and methods along side undiscovered subject matter. Quality training clarifies the substance of curriculum modernizations, so that educators can be thoroughly primed for the road ahead.

Educational Guidance

Lamdeni addresses a common obstacle: The continuity gap between teachers’ advanced coursework and implementing new material in the classroom. Concepts that are explored in theoretical training often prove difficult to convey once instructors resume classroom duties. Lesson plans require tailored adjustment in order to suit specific student needs. Hence, Lamdeni provides ongoing guidance to teachers as they embark on the practical application of new content. The support team helps analyze challenges arising from initial implementation attempts, identifying areas where conveyance or engagement faltered. Together, shortcomings are addressed through collaborative efforts between Lamdeni’s experts and the school faculty. Revised methods and structures can thus be incorporated to bridge theory and practice. Lamdeni’s continuing guidance enables teachers to transmit advanced material through strategies that align with their unique classroom environment. As student needs evolve, so too can implementation plans, ensuring growth continues post-training.

Gateways to Prayer

Despite prayer’s timeless role in connecting individuals and communities to the divine, unlocking its power poses immense educational challenges.

Students often parrot ancient words, with no understanding of what they mean.

Rather than increase obligations, Lamdeni’s twelve-year spiral curriculum prepares minds and hearts for meaningful prayer.

Exploring one facet annually develops appreciation of its multi-dimensional essence, from self-reflection to ancestral heritage.

Adaptations allow each school to pave gateways that fit its community, while upholding prayer’s integrity.

The Prayer Journey

Prayer represents a Service of the Heart, originating from within and resonating at the very core of the soul.. As such, effectively nurturing its essence requires approaches spanning intellect and emotion. Complementing classroom foundations, their Prayer Journey facilitates profound personal encounters through two key dimensions. Firstly, by removing participants from daily routines, and allowing them into novel spaces that are conducive to inward reflection. Secondly, by guiding them so they can discover their innermost thoughts, hidden creative energies and spiritual connectivity.

Undertaken individually yet unified in purpose, each journey centers around unearthing one’s distinctive prayerful voice. Lamdeni aligns its activities with each institution’s aims to channel self-discovery that can lead to resonant prayer. Sites rich in historical meaning hold particular potential to deepen connections with ancestral heritage. Throughout the process, participants refine their sensitivities to soulful prayer as both personal unity and creative renewal with the divine.

Here are some examples of sites strongly connected to the topic of prayer in the desert, Jerusalem, and during the time of the Tannaim and Amoraim . . .

Beit Midrash Tefila

Lamdeni proposes establishing an adult-oriented “Beit Midrash Tefila” that would convene monthly in synagogues around Jerusalem to enrich communal connections to prayer. Catering to individuals who are 18 and older, each meeting invites distinguished lecturers to explore unique dimensions of preparation that are integral to meaningful prayer experiences, from philosophical facets to practical applications..Participants will be exposed to multifaceted perspectives, gaining insight into the diverse ways of accessing the resonance of prayer.

The Beit Midrash Tefila12-sessioncourse will create cohesive spaces for prayer-based dialogue that spans neighborhoods and demographics alike. Ultimately, a repository of insights aggregated across the year’s events will be consolidated online as a lasting illuminative resource on the art of spiritual readiness. For urban communities and individuals seeking to deepen their relationship with prayer, this initiative offers a wellspring for unity, understanding and growth citywide.
