Dvar Yerushalayim is one of the first yeshivot to cater to Jewish students just beginning their path in Torah learning

We offer carefully graded courses for students without a background in Jewish learning, and also for more advanced students who want to improve their skills in independent study. Our gifted and sensitive teachers respect the individuality of each student. Our student body is an intellectually alert Ingathering of the Exiles, drawn from colleges in many countries. The broadening of each student's awareness of Diaspora and Israeli lifestyles is a worthwhile learning experience. Interested students are trained for active participation in the Academy's community education projects.
