Our Dedicated Faculty and Warm Staff
Yeshivat Ramot was founded over eight years ago on the principle that students should learn what they most want to learn. The all-new Torah L’Maaseh program will be integrated into Yeshivat Ramot. In practice, the English-speaking students will come in contact with most of our staff-members and will be provided special programming to assist them in succeeding with their integration.
All of the faculty members are warm, friendly and approachable. Their relationship with the students goes well beyond the classroom.
