Yeshiva and Sem Success at Immanuel
Thursday, 24th May 2012
Immanuel College is delighted that sixteen of its Upper Sixth leavers will be joining a gap-year learning programme in Israel next year before going on to University. Twelve of these will be going to Yeshiva or seminary, including HaKotel, Netiv Aryeh, Shalavim, and Midreshet HaRova.
Students have completed two years of intensive learning within the school’s Beit HaMidrash, this year having learnt parts of Masechet Shabbat. Students have also benefited from an after school Gemoro club, regular learning days during the school holidays, an advanced textual “Lunch and Learn”, Friday morning early Shacharit, and a recent tour of the Edgware Eruv. Before leaving the UK for Israel in the summer, students will undertake a week-long pre-yeshiva and seminary learning programme arranged by the Beit HaMidrash.
Director of Beit HaMedrash, Rabbi Eliezer Zobin, said “The pupils have worked hard – they all deserve the places they have gained in some of Israel’s top seminaries and yeshivot.”
The Immanuel College Beit HaMedrash will once again be running its hugely successful Yeshiva trip for boys in Year 11, which, in previous years has motivated students to choose to go on to Yeshiva. This year, the Beit Hamedrash has launched its first ever girls’ Seminary trip. Fifteen pupils will take part in these trips and undertake a week of learning and sampling of several seminaries and Yeshivot in Israel, whilst based in Yeshivat Har Etzion (“Gush”) and Midreshet Moriah.
