The Application Process

Please Read the Following Talmid Agreement and Then Follow the directions to Apply
Talmid Agreement - Part I
1. All three Sedarim and Minyanim are obligatory and will be strictly enforced.
2. Friday Seder is until 10:00AM.
3. In Shabbos must be attended unless you receive special permission.
4. Befitting true kavod haTorah, a bachur is expected to dress accordingly. Therefore in the Beis Medrash all shirts must be tucked in, crocs are not allowed, socks must be worn, and a jacket is required for davening. Wearing a hat for davening comes very highly recommended.
5. As part of our personal growth and tikkun hamidos program every talmid is responsible to fulfill certain zechusim (chores) once a month in the upkeep of the yeshiva.
6. Responsibility to oneself and to the Yeshiva demands a conduct that befits a true Ben Torah wherever one is. Drinking alcoholic beverages very much tends to conflict with these goals. It is therefore the Yeshiva policy to strictly prohibit drinking alcoholic beverages anywhere on their premises without supervision or permission of the Hanhalla. Even outside the Yeshiva we expect every Bochur to be sensitive to ensure that such behavior will not cause a chilul Hashem or defame your Yeshiva. If this rule is treated lightly, unfortunately one will not be allowed to remain in the Yeshiva.
7. No smoking cigarettes, hookahs, and other tobacco products within the walls of the Yeshiva.
8. One is not allowed to change rooms or move yeshiva furniture from one room to another without prior permission from the Yeshiva’s Hanhalla.
9. One cannot allow non Zeev Hatorah students to sleep anywhere in the yeshiva’s premises, including Shabbos, without the prior permission from the Hanhalla.
10. All electronic devices that have capabilities of receiving internet or playing videos are absolutely forbidden to use in the Yeshiva at all, even if you are not the owner. This includes cell phones, iPhones, Androids, Blackberries, etc. iPod’s, laptops, tablets, etc. Every student is required to bring these devices to the yeshiva Hanhalla and the yeshiva will provide free storage until an appropriate break. If a student does not own any of these devices, he must confirm this with a written and signed letter from his parents. The Yeshiva will provide daily access to emails and filtered internet on dedicated computers. This rule, if treated lightly, will not allow one to remain in the yeshiva.
11. No Students may leave the country throughout the year for family obligations or otherwise, without the express consent from the Hanhalla. Furthermore students may not book tickets for coming or leaving zman without insuring that there dates coincide with the Yeshiva’s Yearly calendar.
12. The Yeshiva has on premises a washer and dryer, for a nominal fee.

Complete the pre-requisite requirements for admittance into the Yeshiva. This includes
  • Getting medical coverage for Israel (see our website)
  • Having the finances arranged before arriving to the Yeshiva
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. The bochur will need to bring their birth certificate or a pdf clear scan of it.
