Welcome to Israel: “What Happens in a Taxi, Should Stay in Said Taxi”

<div class="masa-blog-title">Welcome to Israel: “What Happens in a Taxi, Should Stay in Said Taxi”</div>

By Eliana Glogauer, Nishmat Shana Ba'aretz
“What happens in a taxi should stay in said taxi”: This is a motto that a friend of mine swears by. Before leaving North America, I was warned by many friends that, at any point during one’s year in Israel, one should expect to be completely overcharged for at least one insignificant, but absolutely necessary taxi ride.

Yeshivat Ohr David

Program Description

For the last 28 years Yeshivat Ohr David has provided young men an intensive Torah learning experience while offering the freedom to discover their own unique place in society. The mission of Yeshivat Ohr David is not only to provide an environment to learn about Jewish heritage, but also to instill the key ingredients that enables the Talmid to realize his true potential in life.
The Ohr David experience is a journey of personal and spiritual growth under the guidance of an incredibly caring and nurturing team of Rebbeim. One of the first Yeshivot to cater to the needs of the post high school boy, the Yeshiva continues to produce individuals committed to continued personal development, to the Jewish community and to the land of Israel.
The yeshiva is currently located on a beautiful campus in the Ramot section of Jerusalem.

Yeshivat Kerem B'Yavneh Southern Hemisphere

Program Description

Kerem B’Yavneh is an elite center for high-level Torah learning with a rich tradition of devoted, intensive learning in a vibrant Beit Midrash. It is an Israeli-style Yeshivat Hesder with a Zionistic outlook that strives to develop the student’s ability to learn Gemara and Rishonim independently on an in-depth, sophisticated level. The Beit Midrash is the center of the wider yeshiva community, uniting the bachurim, the kollel families, and the families of the ramim and staff. While the spirit of learning spills over into all the corners of the green campus, with casual discussion of the Gemara and Jewish thought and weekly informal learning; Shabbat meals; Friday night tishes; and melave malkas in the homes of rebbeim and sganei mashgichim, the Beit Midrash remains the unquestionable nucleus of yeshiva life.
Every year, Kerem B’Yavneh attracts a number of exceptional students from the Southern Hemisphere, including students from Brazil, South Africa, and occasionally other locales as well. While the Brazilian students participate in Shabbatonim and other programs for the Overseas students, they generally enroll in shiurim for Israelis. They also benefit from the close guidance and mentoring of a Brazilian-born madrich in the Israeli kollel.
