Yeshivat Lev HaTorah

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

Program Description

Yeshivat Lev HaTorah is a full-time Torah learning program. Our mission is to nurture inspired, confident, well-rounded bnei Torah with the skills to learn independently, while simultaneously developing a deep devotion to Eretz Yisrael, Medinat Yisrael, and the entire Jewish community.
 
For a well-rounded Jewish life, study of Talmud is not enough.  A deep understanding of Judaism requires a global study that begins with Tanach and includes the wisdom of the Jewish philosophers and the halachic decisions of recent rabbinic authorities. As a complement to our intensive, skills-oriented Talmud curriculum, students take in-depth high-level classes in Tanach, Jewish Philosophy, Practical Halacha, Religious Zionism, and Tefila. In each class, teachers expose their students to a wide range of opinions and perspectives - encouraging students to recognize the validity of multiple approaches. The positive, all encompassing atmosphere at Lev HaTorah encourages students to think deeply about their beliefs and intuitions without scorning those that disagree with them. The well-rounded curriculum leads to refined, thoughtful, and open-minded students.  The ability to study independently and think creatively about Torah texts enables students to make learning a lifetime pursuit. To this end, we focus our curriculum on the building of strong textual and conceptual skills.
 
With the guidance of our staff, our students plan and implement community service projects  - giving them the experience and insight to continue serving the community effectively for the rest of their lives. Learning Hebrew, touring the land, and interacting with the people of Israel engage talmidim as 'citizens of Israel' throughout their year of study.
