BIRKAT YOSEF, HESDER YESHIVA
Rabbi Elyakim Levanon shlita, Head of the Yeshiva and Chief Rabbi of the Shomron, is also the Rabbi of the Elon Moreh Community and was one of the most notable students of Rabbi Zvi Yehuda Kook of blessed memory.
The Yeshiva places emphasis on in-depth study of both the oral and written Torah, as a strong connection to the pertinent needs of our generation. Study is conducted in a convivial atmosphere and through the personal accompaniment of each and every student by a senior staff member. When recruited into IDF army service, the students translate their demanding study ethic into a solid devotion to their national homeland. Soldiers who come to Elon Moreh's Hesder Yeshiva have received military commendations for their brothers-in-arms.
The educational program at the Yeshiva places a bold emphasis on creating long lasting personal relationships while also addressing modern day issues. This orientation serves to strengthen mutual responsibility between people. Moreover, a central feature of our educational mission statement is reserved for the formation of strong and healthy marital bonds.
