Yeshiva Zeev Hatorah first opened its doors at the start of the Elul term in 2009. From its humble beginnings with only a small group of hand-picked bochurim and avrechim, a buzz swiftly began circulating around the yeshiva world about this exceptionally warm and inspiring makom Torah. As a result of its unique qualities, Zeev Hatorah has experienced a rapid expansion in enrollment. In just a few months, this yeshiva has blossomed into a thriving beis medrash, resounding with a Kol Torah which rivals other well established learning institutions in Yerushalayim.


In addition to the Yeshiva’s superb repertoire of Torah learning, it stands alone as a yeshiva community dedicated to developing a heightened sense of individual and communal responsibility. The bochurim take personal pride in playing an active roll in maintaining the high standards of orderliness and cleanliness of the yeshiva premises. Such a pronounced investment in caring for one’s surroundings produces a greater achdus amongst the talmidim, more conscientious and mature future spouses, as well as potential leadership qualities to serve Klal Yisrael.


Our bochurim and avreichim come from a wide range of American yeshivos such as Shor Yoshuv, Bridgeport, Providence, Torah Va’das, Ner Yisroel, Yeshiva of Waterberry, Rochester, South Bend, Darchei Torah, Nesivas HaTorah and Linden. In addition it attracts 2nd and 3rd year students from Yeshivos in Israel such as Bais Yisroel, Ateres Yerushalayim, Tiferes Yerushalayim, Ohr Dovid, Mir, Lakewood East, Rav Eichentstein’s, Reishit Yerushalayim, Toras Shraga and the like.


Students attending Yeshiva Zeev Hatorah must have medical coverage. The yeshiva advises using MSG insurance as a mandatory coverage. Here is a link to MSG's website: Bochurim wishing to take care of their own medical coverage with different companies may do so; however at their own risk. Yeshiva takes no responsibility whatsoever if any issues arise later.

Student Visas

Students must have a valid student visa while attending Yeshiva. A visa can be sorted once the Bochur arrives in yeshiva. Student visas may be arranged in your country of residence (check with your consulate), if not, the visa could be aquired in Israel.
