Yeshivat Migdal HaTorah

http://www.masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/migdal.jpg

Program Description

Migdal will inspire our students with a desire to learn and become more knowledgeable in Torah as well empower them with the skills in order to do so. We ensure that our students leave the yeshiva with the tools they need for lifelong independent study in all areas of Torah scholarship. At Migdal, shiurim are not lectures, but are rather tailored learning experiences where questions and dialogue are encouraged. There is also great emphasis on chavruta style learning and allowing students to work through the entire spectrum of Jewish texts on their own under the guidance of their rebbeim.
 
Our goal at Migdal is to provide the best possible role models for our students. Along with a dedicated full-time faculty, many of our rebbeim maintain jobs in the secular world and lead by example on how one is to live as a Torah Jew in today's society. A primary component of the curriculum at Migdal is dedicated to examining the many issues that confront a person in the modern world from both a halachic and philosophic perspective.
