The weekly Torah class expounds on one or more topics found in the weekly Sidrah (Torah reading) and delves deeper, going beneath the surface and striving to tap the hidden wellsprings of knowledge found in the Torah. All different types of sources are used: drush, mussar (ethics), chassidus, etc. A wide base of Torah commentaries is used, from the earliest Rishonim to present-day.

Rather than simply creating an entertaining intellectual challenge, a strong emphasis is placed on grasping what the Torah has to say to us, and implementing it in our everyday lives. Halachic sources are often quoted, and stories of Gedolim (Torah Giants) and Tzaddikim (righteous individuals) are used generously to enhance the class material.

Rabbi Eliyahu Hoffmann is currently a Maggid Shiur (teacher) and Menahel (principal) in Mesivta Chassidei Bobov of Toronto.
