Yeshivat Frisch Welcomes Rabbanit Shani Taragin

November 17, 2022

Yeshivat Frisch’s Beit Midrash was thrilled to welcome Rabbanit Shani Taragin this week, for classes spanning the gamut of Judaic Studies. Rabbanit Taragin’s partnership with Yeshivat Frisch, in which she visits for one week out of every six, began last year and will continue throughout 2022-23. Students are excited to be learning Torat Eretz Yisrael in their classrooms.

Freshman Avigayil Geyer explained that Rabbanit Taragin’s class has complemented what the students are learning in their Masechet Brachot shiur with Frisch Associate Principal Rabbi Joshua Wald. “Rabbanit Taragin’s class offered a different perspective, and centered on practical halacha—what you can do during tefillah to make it more meaningful.”

Multiple students related how they found Rabbanit Taragin’s brilliance and leadership inspiring, and noted how she encouraged the whole class in their learning and discussion. “It was nice learning about the unique experience of women and tefillah,” said freshman Ariella Geliebter about one of Rabbanit Taragin’s classes this week. “Rabbanit Taragin is very engaging and so personable.”
