Full scholarships and living stipends are available for qualified students.
Graduates commit to devote at least one year following graduation to full-time Jewish communal work. Students have the option of committing to two years of Jewish communal service and to continue to participate in the program for a second-year.
Qualifying students can also apply to transition into the CORE semikha program, and have their year or two years count towards their semikha requirements.
All prospective students spend at least two days at the yeshiva while it is in session. Visits should be arranged in advance. Applications should include two letters of recommendation: one academic or professional reference, and one personal reference. References should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications should also include an official transcript. Those currently enrolled in degree programs should include mid-year transcripts and arrange for final transcripts to be emailed to email@example.com upon completion of the semester.
Applications are due March 15. Interviews will be scheduled upon receipt of a complete application. The interview, should it be granted, includes a meeting with the Rosh HaYeshiva; a formal interview with our admissions committee; and a written and oral assessment of the applicant’s Talmud skills.
