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.
