THE OTZEM ENGLISH PROGRAM

1. Integration

We see three objectives for a successful integration.

Hebrew – knowing fluent Hebrew– we have daily Hebrew classes, the end goal being to study in the regular Hebrew program.

Culture – getting to know Israeli culture – experiencing and learning it.

Torah – learning what Eretz Israel and Am Israel are all about.

2. Yeshiva studies designed to build men of faith and action

The traditional Yeshiva curriculum Talmud with Rishonim and Acharonim.

In-depth study of the classic texts of Jewish Philosophy.

Grounding in Mishna and Halacha.

3. Deepening of Jewish identity, religious-Zionist commitment, and love of the Land of Israel

Lectures by experts in the fields of science, politics, military, and philosophy.

Seminars with prominent figures in Israeli society.

Field trips and fact-finding missions.throughout the country.

The Otzem Experience

Navigation and Map-Reading: The discipline and focus acquired in map-reading and navigation in the field where the margin of error is small and precision is critical carry over into all areas of life.

The IDF places great emphasis on the development of these skills.

Shabbatot

Shabbat at Yeshiva is a special and uplifting day. Students enjoy the inspiring tefillot, shiurim and

Shabbat meals with their peers. In addition to Shabbat at the Yeshiva, there will be several Shabbat programs outside of the Yeshiva throughout the course of the year.

Personal Attention and Family Atmosphere

Our Rabbis counsel each student on an individual basis.

Our Rabbis study with each student several times each week.

Each student will have an adopting family from the Naveh community.

Personal Responsibility

“יגיע כפיך כי תאכל אשריך וטוב לך” תהלים קכח ב

Learning to take responsibility for one’s own spiritual and physical well-being and that of society is the basis of a sound personality.

At Otzem we emphasize self-motivated study, daily time management, respect for the environment, and community service.

Chessed

We believe that Torah study is bound up with life outside the Beit Midrash. Individual charitable activities are part of the schedule. The Yeshiva also organizes collective charitable projects.

Independent Learning

We seek to give our students the skills and motivation to continue their Torah study after they leave the yeshiva. To this end, we encourage independent learning. Challenged to solve problems on their own, students experience the joy of discovery. Independent learning is part of the daily

schedule. Our Rabbis are available in the Beit Midrash for questions and guidance.
