Learning and Living Your Sephardic Roots in Israel

Midreshet Eshel is committed to helping students develop themselves both spiritually and personally; to see the Torah as relevant to modern life and Halacha as their guide. Our Sephardic heritage which is inclusive and tolerant is conveyed with warmth and first hand experience. Students are taught to discover and further identify with pride their families’ customs and traditions and are encouraged to preserve their way of life. Higher education is promoted in all ways as a means to fulfill their potential as human beings and as Jews. Simultaneously students are given access to the entire corpus of Jewish learning as they prepare themselves for active roles in family, community and the nation as a whole. Sincere devotion to the people and the land of Israel are are a cornerstone of the Hashkafa of the Midrasha.
