Yeshivat Tiferet Torah: The Sephardic Heritage Program's mission is to provide college-age Sephardic young men with the learning skills, Torah values, knowledge and inspiration necessary to live as well-integrated Jews in contemporary society.
There are currently three tracks:
The Bet Midrash Program
The Bet Midrash, which operates as a division of Yeshivat Tiferet Torah, allows boys with significant previous experience in Talmudic study to deepen and expand their understanding of Torah. With a strong emphasis on learning skills, character development and the mastery of a wide array of Torah topics, the students are given the ability to thrive at an advanced level of learning.
The Mehina Program
The Mehina Program is the beginners’ division of Yeshivat Tiferet Torah which gives young men with limited backgrounds in Talmud, the skills, knowledge and inspiration to view the study of Torah and the meticulous commitment to halaha as the critical components to living life as an observant Jew.
Sephardic Heritage Program
Sephardic Heritage gives young men who have had limited exposure to Torah study and the observance of mitzvot, the opportunity to become familiar with many of the fundamentals of Judaism, as well as the guidance how to incorporate Torah and mitzvot into their daily lives.
Tiferet Torah’s academic program is in session from September to July. College classes are taken through the summer, for those students on an accelerated track.
Tiferet Torah encourages the talmidim to actively participate in the local Jewish community. As such, students will participate in packing food shipments to poor families for Shabbat, and share in the mitzvah of visiting the elderly and sick.
