Yeshivat Sha'arei Mevaseret Zion

http://www.masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/Yeshivat-Sha%27arei-Mevaseret-Zion.jpg

Program Description

YSMZ is a traditional Yeshiva for high school graduates, emphasizing Talmud and an innovative variety of other Judaic studies. Our close proximity to Yerushalayim affords us all of the advantages of the holy city while living on a campus in the beautiful suburb of Mevaseret Zion. Our program is tailored to the specific needs of each Talmid so that each Talmid comes to us with unique interests, skills and talents, and gleans from Mevaseret personal growth, increased knowledge and the ability to learn independently – all at his own level and pace. Shiurim are offered in Hebrew and in English. All classes are small and offer great personal attention.
 
Our Rebbeim make a point of knowing each student personally and are not merely teachers for a year; rather, they become chaverim for life. Our Rebbeim are themselves inspiring role models and give of their time to the students both inside and outside the Beit Midrash, and beyond the year in Israel. Tiyulim and Shabbatonim emphasize our religious, historical and cultural connection to ancient and modern Israel. The Meretz Kollel – Rabbinical Teachers Institute of Mevaseret Zion shares our Beit Midrash. This institute is comprised of Israeli young men who have chosen to devote four years to intensive Torah study after completing their Hesder service (five years combining Torah study with IDF military service). Chavrutot (daily private sessions of learning and discussion) with members of the Meretz Kollel give our students exposure to Israeli society.
