I'm looking for an english yeshiva in Jerusalem geared towards baalei teshuvah and I have heard about the Belz yeshiva in Jerusalem. I have been unable to find any information about it, however. Does anyone have any information about it, in particular if it's an english yeshiva?

  • I second Kovy Jacobs, you can watch many Ohr Somaych lectures online too to get a feel for the atmosphere, a little different than other yeshivas. Some of the greatest Rabbis out there.

It's called Torah v'emunah and is located in Zichron Moshe. On Moshe Khagiz St. A block from Mayanot, the Chabad place. I believe it's primarily Hebrew language but there's a chaburah in English. Here's the Belz website for contacting them: https://worldofbelz.org/avodah/


I searched the Olam Hatorah site for Belz Yeshivas and did not find one specifically for Baalei Teshuva.

26 institutions come up when I search for Yeshivas for Baalei Teshuva in Jerusalem. I suggest you investigate them.
