Programming for Shabbat and Yom Tov

Two out of every three Shabbatot are called Shabbat Yeshiva. We recommend that talmidim remain in the Yeshiva on these Shabbatot as they are an integral part of the Yeshiva experience. The special environment of Shabbat in Hakotel begins from the very first moments of the day with Talmidim often danncing down to the Kotel, or davening an uplifiting Kabbalat Shabbat in the Beit Midrash. Throughout Shabbat, students are inspired by sichot shiurm Tishin and Kiddush, as well as meals at the homes of ramim or local families. There are also off-campus Shabbatonim throughout the year in Tzfat, Eilat and in homes of various staff members. When there is an off Shabbat the Yeshiva encourages students to take advantage of the time to travel the country and visit families in other locales. We recommend that boys stay in the Rova for Yom Tov, as Yamim Noraim, Simchat Torah and Shavuot are among the most meaningful and memorable experiences in Yeshiva. We make arrangements for those who decide to stay or those who prefer to spend Yom Tov in other parts of the country. The dorms are open for talmidim throughout the year, including during bein hazmanim.
