Chevron Yeshiva Expands Campus to Meet Demand


chevron-yeshivaYerushalayim – Chevron Yeshiva Knesses Yisroel/Slobodka is expanding its magnificent campus in Givat Mordechai in response to an unprecedented demand for admission to the famed 135-year old yeshiva. This z’man, the Yeshiva admitted 200 bochurim of the approximately 1,000 that applied.  As in the past, the new bochurim were selected based on their ability to continue in the rich tradition of the Yeshiva to delve into the depths of learning and perhaps to emerge as one of the future Torah leaders of klal yisroel. More than 1,400 of the brightest young men from Eretz Yisroel and abroad study in the magnificent yeshiva campus.

To accommodate the many bochurim who wish to learn in the Chevron Yeshiva, a capital campaign was launched to construct 32 modern dormitory rooms on the 5th floor of the magnificent Yeshiva building. An additional 32 rooms are in the process of being built on the 6th floor. In addition, the Yeshiva expanded its huge dining hall. The Yeshiva prides itself with a modern and well maintained campus that is praised by the student body and visitors to the Givat Mordechai home of the Yeshiva.

Harav Yosef Chevroni, Rosh Yeshiva of the Chevron Yeshiva explained that the decision to expand was not taken lightly as “the yeshiva has always sought to limit admission to the most serious students, but of late the number of such applicants has dramatically increased.” He added: “It is encouraging to see so many bochurim who are looking for the ‘Slobodka derech’ of intense learning.”

The Chevron Yeshiva is known for having produced many of the leading Gedolei Yisroel in Eretz Yisroel and America. The Yeshiva recently marked the 50th yahrzeit of the venerable sage Harav Aaron Kotler, the founding Rosh Yeshiva of Bais Medrash Govoha who studied in Slobodka. His son Harav Shneur studied in the Chevron Yeshiva.

Harav Chevroni thanked the many friends of the Yeshiva in America who actively support the expansion program. “The Yeshiva is extremely grateful to its supporters in many part of the world who appreciate the Yeshiva’s legacy and its commitment to excellence today.”

  1. @A Simple Chussid:

    Before you start criticizing other people’s language, grammar and syntax kindly take care of your own first. What on earth did you mean by “Does the person who assigned this title to the article know his English”?

    To whom did “the person” assign what? Also, the “his” is completely superfluous.

    People who live in glass houses, A Simple Chussid should never throw stones.
