American Friends of Yeshivat Migdal Hatorah
We are a gap-year Yeshiva in Modi'in, Israel. Our focus is on philosophy, analytic Gemara study, and thinking independently.
Yeshivat Migdal HaTorah (Migdal) offers a unique and extraordinary experience for post yeshiva high school students. In addition to advanced studies in Gemara, Tanach, Halacha, Jewish History, Philosophy and the Land of Israel, the Migdal HaTorah curriculum also focuses on contemporary Halachic issues with an emphasis on the many halachic challenges Bnei-Torah will face as they establish careers and confront the complexities of our modern world.
For this reason, the majority of Migdal’s rabbanim and faculty hold professional positions in the secular world and thus serve as positive role-models of a lifestyle that balances a commitment to advanced Torah learning and mitzvot with the demands of college, career, and family.
Migdal HaTorah offers its students an individualized learning program that provides them with the skills needed for independent self-study of the Torah in accordance with the unique method of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik.
