Don’t Just Continue Learning.
ABOUT THE YESHIVA
YESHIVA OF SOUTH FLORIDA is designed to continue the path of growth in Avodas Hashem and Talmud Torah that Talmidim cultivated while learning in Eretz Yisrael. Our goal is to create a Makom Torah where Talmidim can thrive and develop into Talmidei Chachamim, Bnei Aliyah and Bnei Torah for life.
In our Yeshiva, Talmidim will be
fully immersed in a dynamic Torah environment, as they are surrounded by warm Rebbeim and Kollel members from early morning until late at night.
A key part of the Yeshiva’s design is to foster close relationships between the Rebbeim and Talmidim. Our Rebbeim are all extremely devoted to this goal.
The Yeshiva daily schedule will include 3 Sedarim (morning, afternoon, and night), along with 2 daily college classes (allowing for 12-18 credits per semester). This schedule is designed to facilitate full immersion in the Beis Medrash, while pursuing an undergraduate degree.
All elements of Yeshiva life will be contained on our beautiful campus: the Beis Medrash, college classes, cafeteria, and dormitory. This will allow for maximum focus.
The Torah environment
that we are fostering in sunny Boca Raton is a peaceful enclave away from the bustle of distractions, fulfilling the directive of Chazal:
“הוי גולה למקום תורה.”
The Yeshiva week extends through Shabbos, with a full Shabbos-in-Yeshiva experience. This will include Friday night Tisches and Melave Malkas with Rebbeim, along with Yeshiva Davening and Yeshiva Seudos. Off-Shabbosim will be scheduled in with regularity as well.

Chazara & Night Chaburas
Seder will focus on careful reading and analysis of the Gemara and Rishonim, while Shiur will address the material prepared with a special emphasis on fostering the Talmid's ability to independently assess the conceptual underpinnings of the Sugya.
Seder will focus on covering ground in the Masechta with clarity and retention, while a short weekly chabura will highlight key ideas from the Limud.
Weekly Shiur will provide a thorough overview of relevant fundamental Sugyos, with an eye towards a broad application to the rest of Shas.
Seder will focus on gaining familiarity with a broad array of practical topics, while a weekly Shiur will develop selected topics and their real life applications.
Seder will consist of personal learning of classical Mussar sefarim, along with practical Chaburas to help each Talmid forge his path in Avodas Hashem and personal growth.
Night Chaburas on topics such as Machshava, Tanach, and Chassidus, will encourage our Talmidim to think profoundly and broaden their horizons in Torah.
An integral part of the design of our Yeshiva is the strong connection between the Talmidim and our Kollel. These young Talmidei Chachamim will serve as role models for the Talmidim and set the tone for complete immersion in Torah study in our thriving Beis Medrash. Living in very close proximity to the yeshiva, our Kollel members will forge close relationships with the Talmidim, both inside and outside of the Beis Medrash. Our Kollel will add Ruach, breadth, wisdom, and experience to the Yeshiva.
