Talmud Torah “Hadar Yosef” was established through our desire to educate Eli’s children in the values of Torah and Mitzvot. A substantial number of the Talmud Torah’s teachers are Mechina alumni who are continuing to learn in the Kollel in conjunction with their work as educators. The student body numbers 270 students and is expected continue growing within the next few years. The staff consists of 30 male and female teachers. The Talmud Torah serves the residents of the Binyamin Region: Shilo, Ma’aleh Levona, Shvut Rachel, Ofra, Ariel, Gitit, Tapuach, Cochav Hashachar, Kida and Migron. Since the revival of Aliyah from France, Hadar Yosef has incorporated some new Olim children and tends to their special needs. Following the evacuation of Gush Katif, we also have some 25 students from Netzarim who are currently living in Ariel.
