Is it for me?

This yeshiva is open to all different levels. The bulk of the program is catered to students with no prior knowledge. The most advanced level of the yeshiva learns exclusively in Hebrew (similar to the third year of study at Israeli Yeshiva Gdolah.

Beginner students should have a desire to observe Jewish Law in full. Students should have the ability and desire to learn full-time (all day). Generally, the student body is comprised of young
Russian men 18-28 years old, with exceptions made on an individual basis.

Students must be Jewish according to Jewish Law (Halachically Jewish) by birth or Orthodox conversion, and be in good mental health.

A typical student is a young baal tschuva, with a minimum of a high school diploma (although many students have graduate degrees), who wants to immerse himself in Jewish life and
master the skills of independent learning.
