- Facilities: The campus is located in the heart of Jerusalem, within walking distance of shopping
and commercial districts, the Old City and the Western Wall, and the Hebrew University. Living in
Israel is, in itself, an educational experience. The program enhances this experience with tours
to various parts of the country, and Shabbatot with families representing the broad spectrum of
religious life in Israel. Participants are encouraged to develop personal relationships with the staff
of Rabbis and educators, who also open their homes to students on Shabbatot and Yomim
Tovim. The campus includes the Beit Midrash, classrooms and seminar rooms. The library
contains a vast collection of Torah classics, including facsimile editions of rare manuscripts.
next year in JERUSALEM!
