Educational Philosophy - Bechefetz Lev
"אלוקי, נשמה שנתת בי טהורה היא"
Our educational philosophy, Bechefetz lev, is based on the belief that each person is made up of innate goodness. We place both trust and responsibility into each talmid while still maintaining a supervised learning atmosphere, striving to develop each Talmid from his inherent goodness. This gives talmidim the opportunity to be responsible for their own self-growth while still being guided by the Yeshiva’s rabbis and educators.
A Zionist Yeshiva
Yeshivat Ma’alot is a Zionist Hesder yeshiva. Its ideology is rooted in the fact that we are living in the era of the beginning of our redemption, ראשית צמיחת גאולתנו. As a a Yeshiva, we are partners in bringing about this time. Our Israeli Talmidim embody this ideal both in the education they receive and through their military service to the country.
Tools for Life
The hashkafah, or outlook, that is taught in Yeshiva is one that accompanies talmidim throughout further stages of life- university, work, marriage, community life and connection to Torah. At Yeshivat Maalot we believe that one’s experiences in Yeshiva are a momentous step towards living life as a ben-Torah. With the foundations that are built in Yeshivat Maalot, one has the tools to live a life of greatness as a ben-Torah for many years to come.
