The Diaspora Yeshiva
The Diaspora Yeshiva, the only Jewish institution located on Mount Zion, was the first in Israel to open its doors to those with little or no Torah knowledge. Since its opening in 1967, it has grown to include a multitude of programs for men and women of all levels of Jewish knowledge.

A Special Study of Character and Personality Development (Mussar)In keeping with the goal of maintaining the highest levels of scholarship and understanding, the Yeshiva employs a highly specialized handed-down method of learning. The wonderful depths of Torah wisdom are revealed to the student through an exciting question and answer format in which he is stimulated to search for real truth and be responsible for his conclusions. The most important aspect of this method is the crystallization of learning formulas, which the student himself can reproduce, in an independent study.
