IN THEIR WORDS “For years I dreamed of having a profession, and I always enjoyed physical activity. This yeshiva is the best thing that could have happened to me. HereI found myself progressing in everything -in my learning, in my way of thinking, in my character traits, and in my perception of life-because I could finally think with peace of mind, without pressure.” Yosef A., Alumnus Tifrach “In my opinion, 90% of our current students would have left their homes and yeshivas and been living on the street if not for this yeshiva.” Aryeh Rosenberg Staff Social Worker
