ACADEMIC TRACKS


One Year Program

Our main program strikes the delicate balance between a challenging academic curriculum and the ultimate Israel experience. The curriculum uses both a content-based and skills based approach. We are a college promoting, parent friendly environment catering to the needs of the individual. The program is academically tracked with the ability to move and change levels based on personal progress.

In keeping with the goal of educating each student in a way most suitable for him, the Yeshiva has instituted a special program for Sephardim. Although much of the day is spent learning in the Beit Midrash and in shiurim alongside their Ashkenazi brethren, the Yeshiva appreciates the importance of keeping the traditions forged for us by our ancestors.The Sephardi program is headed by HaRav Yaakov Darmoni. It begins with a separate daily Shacharit minyan, adhering strictly to Nusach Edot HaMizrach and making use of a Sephardi Sefer Torah procured by the Yeshiva for that purpose. The program also includes special shiurim focusing on halacha and minhagim based on the writings of Sephardi poskim, visits to Sephardi gedolim such as HaRav HaGaon Ovadiah Yoseph Shlit”a, and get-togethers in the homes of some of the program’s Rebbeim.For the alumni overseas, there are often Shabbatonim which include a visit from one of the Rabbanim of the program.

The British Programme

Our British Programme has been specifically designed to provide a pastoral facility for our students from the UK. The programme includes special Shabbatonim and shiurim exclusively for British students.

The programme is under the Directorship of Rabbi Mark Mays, who has studied for semicha and is continuing his learning in the Yeshiva, since returning to Israel in the year 5763 after six years as a Youth Director in London. Rabbi Mays makes himself available to British students who need healp in learning or simply need someone to talk to. For More information Contact our UK Representative, Rav Mark Mays.

Netiv Aryeh offers an optional second year Shana Bet program. Approximately 2/3 of the students avail themselves of this opportunity to further their growth and to put into practice many of the ideals and skills they acquired in Shana Aleph. This year is used for Torah growth while placing an emphasis on character development, leadership skills, interpersonal relationships, and preparation for college, marriage and the workplace. Shana Bet students are viewed as role models and are expected to spend part of the night seder learning with a Shana Aleph student. The program features special events for only Shana Bet such as Shabbatonim and Melave Malkes.

Registration for Shana Bet takes place in the Yeshiva during the first two weeks after the Pesach break. To download a PDF with detailed information about the Shana Bet program for 2017-18 click here. For all matters relating to Shana Bet feel free to contact [email protected]

Given the Yeshiva’s close connection with the Israel Defense Forces, Israeli students and for foreign students who arrive with intent of serving in the IDF (with parental approval) may combine army service with learning in Yeshiva. Students spend one year learning full-time in Yeshiva before entering the IDF.

Hesder Program

American Semicha for Education

An English-speaking Kollel comprised primarily of recently-married alumni who have either just immigrated to Israel or have elected to spend a period of time in the Yeshiva before returning to their country of origin. The shiurim are in English and they generally learn the Massechet studied by the Yeshiva.

The Hebrew-speaking Rennert Kollel under the overall guidance of HaGaon HaRav Yaakov Katz is run by HaRav Eliyahu Tzaddok. HaRav Katz gives shiurim both in the material being studied as well as in the amud yomi cycle of Mishna Brura.

In addition to the positive influence generated simply by the presence of these avreichim in the Beit Midrash, they are required to spend part of their day learning with and guiding first-year students. Many of the avreichim invite their chavrutas for Shabbat where they can get a firsthand look at a Torah-home in Eretz Yisrael.
