About Yeshivat Torat Shraga
Yeshivat Torat Shraga is located on the beautiful campus of the Yeshiva University Gruss Kollel in Bayit Vegan, Jerusalem. Our facility includes a beautiful newly renovated air-conditioned Beit Midrash, classrooms, dormitory apartments, basketball court, weight room, student lounge, and computer room. Many of the Gruss Kollel fellows have established warm relationships with our talmidim through the medium of daily chavruta study, late night chaburot and home hospitality.
The Yeshiva’s unique combination of high-level shiurim and unparalleled Rebbe/Talmid relationship is reflective of the personality of its Rosh Hayeshiva, Harav Avishai David shlit”a. Rav David, a close talmid of Rav Yosef Dov Soloveitchik zt”l and Rav Nisson Alpert zt”l, and a renowned Talmid Chacham in his own right, has held numerous educational and Rabbinic posts in North America including Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivat Or Chaim in Toronto before making aliyah with his family. Since then, Rav David has served as the Rav of Beit Medrash Torani Leumi in Beit Shemesh, as Maggid Shiur in Yeshivat Ohr Etzion, Shaarei Mevaseret Zion, Michlala and as the Rosh HaMidrasha of Michlelet Mevaseret Yerushalayim.
YTS students enjoy tiyulim throughout the length and breadth of Eretz Yisrael, including three three-day excursions, combined with mini-tiyulim in and around Yerushalayim are designed to imbue our students with a love of the land and its underpinnings in Tanach. It also fosters the opportunity to meet the varying population strata of Eretz Yisrael and to see the holistic beauty of the Jewish People.
In addition, YTS arranges visits to some of the great Torah personalities of Israel from the broad spectrum of Jewish leadership on a periodic basis. In order to nurture a familiarity with the variegated communal settings of the country, shabbatonim are organized in different communities throughout Eretz Yisrael.
