Back2Basics is a program/curriculum that allows students to learn and appreciate the Rebbe?s sichos and simultaneously teaches the skills/tools necessary in order for the student to learn on their own from the original Yiddish text. It is a chavrusa based program that is maximized when the learning is done in pairs rather than in a typical classroom setting. This empowers the students to think for themselves and challenges them to come up with answers on their own. The targeted age is anywhere between 14-18, but the program has seen tremendous success both with younger children and adults. Our workbooks are the result of several years of fine tuning a system that engages the student and allows them to successfully learn independently.
1) For the student to build the necessary skills in order to learn a Yiddish sicha on their own and understand it well.
2) For the students to master the actual content of the sichos they will be learning in the curriculum.
3) For the students to identify with the horaos (lessons) the Rebbe teaches in the sicha and apply them to their lives.
Every element of the b2b curriculum fits into one of these three categories and assists in attaining these goals.
