Yeshivat Lev Aharon is a leading Sephardic yeshiva for students who are looking to mature as Jews and connect to Torah, while enjoying a fun Israel experience.
Located in the beautiful neighborhood of Har Nof, Jerusalem, Lev Aharon is a post-high school Yeshiva offering a unique Sephardi experience in the exploration of Torah and Israel. Now in its eighth year, Lev Aharon continues its tradition of integrating Torah life with the modern world. The yeshiva’s goal is to instill in our students the beauty of a Torah life and that the way to a happy, successful life is by living with the Torah. Lev Aharon challenges its students to think out of the box and to examine the world we live in with an open-minded approach. Our students take home with them an appreciation of Torah and love of Eretz Yisrael as they develop into leaders of their community.
The program is for students who are looking to grow, while at the same time to enjoy living in and touring Israel. The program offers thought-provoking classes and amazing trips, all in an exciting atmosphere. We offer classes in many subjects at all levels, from beginners to more advanced. We tour all parts of Israel on trips and Shabbatonim. Our Rabanim and staff, warm and down-to-Earth, provide personal attention to each student.
Although a majority of the student body hails from the U.S, our students also come from other countries, including Panama and the United Kingdom. The school is headed by Rabbi David Laniado, an American-born Sephardi educator who has been involved in education for close to 20 years. The program is for a full academic year, with many students returning for a second year.
