Yeshivat Hakotel

http://www.masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/Yeshivat-Hakotel%20photo_0.jpg

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.

Yeshivat Orayta

http://www.masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/Yeshivat-Orayta-photo.jpg

Program Description

Orayta, located in the Old City of Jerusalem overlooking the Kotel, is housed in a magnificent 900 year-old Crusader building with an incredible view of the Temple Mount (Har Habayit), the Mount of Olives (Har Hazeitim) and the Judean Desert. At Orayta students will develop leadership skills and become philosophically equipped to cope with the challenges of living a Torah life in a modern secular world.
 
Students will be introduced to a wide range of Jewish thinkers including the teachings of Rav Abraham Isaac Kook, Rabbi J.B. Soloveitchik and the Chassidic Masters. At Orayta students will understand why they learn Gemara and the vital role it plays in their personal development. The year will not simply focus on one or two tractates; rather, students will probe sections selected from the entire Talmud that are relevant to their life and typify the gamut of archetypical modalities of Talmudic logic.
