Machon Yaakov accepts promising students with little formal Jewish educational background, and creates an environment that maximizes their spiritual, intellectual, and character growth.

Through its one and two-year programs, Machon Yaakov connects students to the full range of classical Jewish texts in philosophy, law, and ethics. The program gives students the independence and the inspiration to continue a lifetime of Jewish growth.

It is impossible to build a successful structure without a strong and deeply rooted foundation. The greater the foundation, the greater the potential for growth.
