The Theme Course (varies in each ERW) is a seminar developed around topics of interest and importance to Hebraic researchers and leaders*. Topics are selected based on your interests and needs and that of the program and will be designed to challenge your thinking and enhance your research and practice in the way of Torah. The thematic courses will include a bibliography to enlarge your knowledge of each theme. You will be expected to prepare for each theme course by doing preparatory reading; there may be other requirements during the week. Following the completion of the theme course, you will develop a scholarly summary paper integrating the material from the course and your own experience during the ERW. Six (6) Theme Courses and summary papers are required for the PhD degree.
*Such themes will include spirituality, leadership, racism and the Torah studies, and a nuclear world.
