Shabbatonim

You will notice that a Shabbat will be marked either as “IN” or “OUT”.

An “IN” Shabbat means that we expect every talmid to be in the yeshiva for that Shabbat.  We have Friday night and Seudah Shlisheet meals together, accompanied by a Rabbi and his family.  There is beautiful davening, and full programming, including Oneg Shabbat and Shiurim throughout the day.  Exceptions can be made for family simchas, etc, but specific permission needs to be given in order to miss an IN Shabbat.

An “OUT” Shabbat means that a talmid has a choice:  He can either choose to spend Shabbat with family and friends in a community in Israel.  Or, he can choose to stay in the yeshiva.  About 30-40% of our talmidim choose to remain in the yeshiva on an “OUT” Shabbat.  These Shabbatot are quieter, more relaxed, and often offer great opportunities for talmidim to eat at the homes of their Rebbeim.

We invite you, the parents, to join us for a Shabbat, especially for an IN Shabbat.  Apartments are available for rent only a few minutes’ walk from the yeshiva. Please check out various options on our website:  http://www.levhatorah.org/student-information/family-visits.asp

And of course, there are several Shabbatot throughout the year in which we, as a yeshiva, travel to some unique place in Israel and spend Shabbat together.  These Shabbatot are magical, and not to be missed under any circumstances.  (Families are welcome to join us, but we need plenty of advance notice in order to make sure that the hotel will be able to accommodate you.)


Please note that MEALS ARE ALWAYS PROVIDED, whether it is an IN or an OUT Shabbat.

Even during Bein Hazmanim and the Chagim, WE PROVIDE ALL MEALS.  (During Bein Hazmanim and Chagim, we arrange meals based on a daily sign-up sheet.)
