The JET Yarchei Kallah is modeled after the description of the Yarchei Kallah in the Talmud. In the two months of the year (Elul and Adar) when agricultural activity was less demanding, Jews would take the opportunity to return to the study halls to reinvigorate their Torah knowledge, thus strengthening their ties to Judaism. The word Kallah means assembly; Yarchei means month; hence the term refers to those months when they would assemble to study Torah.
