You may be at an important and meaningful crossroad. You may be finishing a full high school experience, or an unbelievable Shana Alef and you are facing a crucial decision. This may cause you to think about the next step on your endless journey to flourish as a creation of God and to develop your inner world.
We at Yeshivat Otniel believe that this type of growth is intertwined with Torah study and the pursuit of Gods message.

The Purpose of Visiting the Yeshiva
Visiting the Yeshiva is a chance for the Talmid to interact with the Yeshiva and it is also a chance for the Yeshiva to get to know the Talmid.
This is your chance to get a taste for the day-to-day life here and to engage with the Rabbeim and the Talmidim. The more your time here is filled with content such as Shiurim and Chavrutot, the more you will get a better sense of the Yeshiva.
This is why we try to incorporate various experiences in to your schedule be it Limmud Iyun, which is somewhat of a cornerstone in the yeshiva, or a wide variety of shiurim given by the Roshei Yeshiva, Rabanim and others. Additionally, In order to create a more direct interaction with the yeshiva and the Rabanim, we try to hold shiurim specifically for visiting potential students with Roshei Yeshiva, Rabanim, Madrichim and other Talmidim.
FAQ of incoming and potential students(hebrew)
In order to fully experience all of the Yeshiva and its Torah, it is recommended to visit the yeshiva for two days at the very least. In our experience, this is the minimum amount of time it takes to get a feel for the day-to-day yeshiva schedule and life style.
Your time in yeshiva is also an opportunity for us to get to know you personally. This is to see if Otniel would be the right place for you to realize your personal goals and desires and also to properly place you in to the optimal framework for you in the yeshiva (Rabbeim, Chavrutot etc).
In order to learn at Yeshivat Otniel you will need to be interviewed and tested on a Sugya B’Iyun.
As we have said, the decision as to where you decide to delve in to deep Torah study is not a simple one.
We are happy to hear from you and accompany you through this important step.
