• YU in Israel


  • Yeshiva University maintains a robust presence and a beautiful campus in Jerusalem, housing the Caroline and Joseph Gruss Institute. Several YU programs conduct their activities and operations from our campus and provide a plethora of services and opportunities to our students and community. These include:

    • The S. Daniel Abraham Israel Program in our dedicated student center services over 2,000 students studying in Israel each year, including almost 700 YU students enrolled in the program
    • The Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary Israel Kollel, which provides rabbinic training and advanced Torah study in Israel to students enrolled at the seminary
    • The Midrashiya Program, which offers seminars and training for the spouses of our rabbinical students in areas of scholarship, pedagogy and communal leadership
    • A division of the Center for the Jewish Future, which facilitates summer and winter service learning programs at high schools in development towns in the south of Israel. These programs are run by YU students to offer English language and informal education, and to promote increased self-esteem for these at-risk high school students.
    • Support and coordination of activities for Yeshiva University Israel Alumni Association, which provides outreach, networking and programming for YU alumni living in Israel. More than 4,000 YU alumni benefit from sponsored academic and social events, as well as class reunions.
    • YU’s “Torah-To-Go” Series printed editions are regularly distributed throughout communities and synagogues in Israel
    • Students at Wurzweiler School of Social Work and Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration can fulfill their internship requirements at social service agencies and schools in Israel under the supervision of YU faculty
