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 malkasin the homes of rebbeim and sganei mashgichim, the Beit Midrash remains the unquestionable nucleus of yeshiva life.

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.
