  • Kids who cannot sit and learn all day. Become ostracized in their communities. In 2003, most kids off the street. Today, only 5% but 90% would end up there without YKZ
  • Two quotes which very much sums up the philosophy of the yeshiva.
  • Remote rural location, yet central to many parts of Israel. Away from temptations of city life
  • Comfortable but not too comfortable. Kids really connect to the location and nature and the peace and quiet
  • English speaking program next year
  • Learn according to level, not necessarily age. Broken up into 3 class with breaks inbetween. In the early years, ,most of the students came to us directly off the streets and it felt like we were running a hostel. Today, it looks and feels like a yeshiva.
  • Mezuzot, chairs, furniture for use on campus and for sale outside the community
  • Learn to build and repair computers and how to operate all types of software. Students also learn how to edit and mix video.
  • Students build and also install electricity. New classrooms and beit midrash all done by them.
  • Yosef came back to be a madrich and is also about to get his electricians license.
  • Kids come back after they finish – madrich, to work, to spend Shabbos. No longer feel the need to roam the streets on M”S
