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.
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.
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.

While children receive toys and hear joyous singing, adults love to sing along and forget about what they are in the hospital for.
