Beit Chana - Emissaries to the World

http://masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/bais-chana.jpg

Program Description

Beit Chana offers a special Chassidishe Torah-orientated learning and teaching program for students from abroad. The teaching training program at Beis Chana Sefad Chul expects admitted students to excel in Chasidishkiet, Tzniyut, Yirat Shamaim, Tefilla, Hiskashrus and more. Those who complete all the obligations of the program receive a “Morot Lagolah” certificate from the government.
 
The seminary was established primarily for Israeli-Hebrew speaking high school graduates, so most classes are in Hebrew and applicants must have full command of the Hebrew language.
 

Yeshivat Sha'arei Mevaseret Zion

http://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.

Yeshivat Kerem B'Yavneh

http://masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/Yeshivat-Kerem-B%27Yavneh.jpg

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.

Learning at Pardes

<div class="masa-blog-title">Learning at Pardes</div>

 
By Zach Margulies, Pardes
 
After my first month at Pardes, I started getting into the routine of classes, and developed a pretty good sense of how the rest of the year would look.
 
They way we learn here is very different from the way we learn in college; in college, classes meet two or three times a week for an hour at a time, and the bulk of the work is done at home, alone.
