Yeshivat Hesder Yerucham prides itself on Three educational and social goals: 1) Learning in a giving atmosphere – The Yeshiva believes that a ben Torah – one who devotes his life to Torah – must commit himself to the betterment of his community as well as to his own personal religious development. 2) Educational contribution to the town – being involved in the community and by presenting positive role models for the children of the town. 3) Settle the Negev – We bring well-educated, idealistic young families from the urban centers of Israel to settle in Yerucham.
