At YTVA, we believe that the goal of your year in Israel is not only to amass Torah knowledge. Torah is not an end–we learn Torah as a means to affect our character, our relationships, and to inform and enable awareness of our future. We aren’t just the readers of a book, but people who are transformed and changed by its messages.


Midreshet Torah v’Avodah is an innovative Bnei Akiva midrasha for highly motivated high school graduates. It is the first midrasha to offer a truly integrated experience. In one incredible year, you will experience life-changing growth in your connection to Torah, to the Jewish people, and to the land and State of Israel. You will have the opportunity to learn from the most impressive educators in Matan, the most advanced Torah institution for women.
