Who We Are
Yeshivat Torah v’Avodah believes that learning Torah can be a means to a unique and fulfilling
lifestyle and relationship with Torah. A relationship with Torah means that learning must be about forming relationships―with Hashem, oneself, one’s family and one’s community. It should create a connection with the past and build a bridge to the future.
