Program Times: There is much to learn and experience, and so our days will be understandably full but not marathons. (Of course, if you’d like to keep a full Orayta learning schedule and experience “late night in the Beis”, you’re more than welcome!”). Most mornings will begin at approximately 9:15am. Several of the evenings will include special programming after dinner, but that will come after a bit of recovery time available in the afternoon. Tuesday and Wednes
