Program Description

Yeshivat HaKotel aims to cultivate yirat shamayim as part of a life of Avodat Hashem by developing students' appreciation of Talmud Torah and its connection to Am Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael. You will become familiar with the basics of Tanakh, Torah Sheb’al Peh, Halacha, Jewish philosophy and belief, and Mussar while developing the ability for independent study in all of these fields.
 
The yeshiva offers a large number of shiurim in subjects other than Gemara, and helps students build a schedule most appropriate to them. Although the average boy will generally spend around 80 percent of his time on Talmud, there are many who devote up to half their time to other subjects.

Program Description

Shnat is Habonim Dror’s ultimate Israel programme. It is an intensive 10 month experience that combines studying, mad fun, finding friends for life and beginning a process of defining your personal identity. Running since 1946, the Machon is a world-renowned Institute for the training of young leaders from the Diaspora and boasts a faculty containing some of the best teachers in there fields in Israel.  
 
Shnat consists of 3 components – Machon/Boneh, Kibbutz and Kaveret. The Machon offers an exciting and hands-on look into Israeli History and Current Society, Jewish Civilization, Hebrew, Leadership skills, Political Insights and lots more through lectures and courses. Boneh is an alternative option for those who prefer a more informal environment than the university style lectures of Machon, with greater focus on Habonim and the kvutzah (group), focusing on topics more specific to Habonim. Boneh is hosted on a kibbutz, where the participants live together and build a sense of group identity.
 
After Machon, participants spend several weeks on a Habonim kibbutz, working in different jobs with the kibbutzniks; from cooking, gardening and laundry to working in the kindergarten and the fields. Participants enjoy free weekends and spend time getting to know the young people on the kibbutz and other volunteers. Nine hours of hard labour every day allow the Shnatties to enjoy the fruits of this Socialist living. 
 
Kaveret combines practical communal living with community work in Israeli society. The Shnatties contribute invaluably to Israeli society whilst learning, compromising and fending for themselves (yes, that includes cooking; cleaning and shopping!). Kaveret gives participants an opportunity to explore the depths of Israel society while contributing to its betterment by volunteering with different organisations.
