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 be a Makom Torah where Talmidim thrive and develop into Talmidei Chachamim, Bnei Aliyah and Bnei Torah for life.
In our Yeshiva, Talmidim are 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
are the closer relationships that are fostered between the Rebbeim and Talmidim. Our Rebbeim are all extremely devoted to this goal.
The Yeshiva daily schedule includes 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 are contained on our beautiful campus: The Beis Medrash, college classes, cafeteria, and dormitory. This allows 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 includes Friday Night Tisches and Melave Malkas with Rebbeim, along with Yeshiva Davening and Yeshiva Seudas. Off-Shabbosim are scheduled every 3 weeks.
