?!Cutting the IDF ID card - A program for military graduates in the center of the country At the Meir Harel Yeshiva in Modi'in Cut the IDF ID card?! Fill your batteries to exit the real life

The overseas program is intensive and inspiring. It offers a unique approach to learning and students are encouraged to ask questions. Many shiurim are given throughout the day, with a wide variety of subjects.  The Morning Seder is devoted to in depth Gemara study. During afternoon Seder the students learn Gemara Bekiut and daily program continues with shiurim on an extensive list of topics that includes: Torah (Iyun and Bekiut), Nach (Iyun and Bekiut), Machshevet Yisrael, Halacha etc.
An integral part of the daily schedule is the chevruta with Israeli students. This further enhances their Hebrew language skills, is a magnificent learning experience and brings them into contact with the cream of orthodox Israeli youth.
Much of the learning in the yeshiva is done in small groups, giving personal attention to each student.  The staff build a close and personal relationship with each student and help direct them in their own path.  This helps each individual feel comfortable and develop his own personality.
