Yeshivat Simchat Shlomo

Join a community of people in the heart of Jerusalem,

learning Torah together, spending Shabbat together,

and discovering Israel together.

Shlomo Katz Feb 2008 006

“The right Yeshiva is a place where there is so much love that it’s awesome. G-d gave us Torah with so much love, so if I want to give over Torah to my children, it has to be done in the same way. Rebbe Nachman says each time you learn, you are bringing Torah down from Heaven. If you teach Torah with anger, and tell them, “You have to! You have to!” No. (That’s not going to work.) It has to be so deep that they want to. The spiritual depths of the Torah have to be presented.” - Reb Shlomo Carlebach zt”l

Inspired by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, Yeshivat Simchat Shlomo is a place of spiritual growth for both men and women, respecting each person’s background and individual path.

The Yeshiva offers serious exploration of a broad spectrum of Jewish teachings including Gemara, Halacha, and Chassidut. The essence of the Community Learning Program, the Men’s Beit Midrash and the Etel Sara’s Learning Program programs is strong, in-depth learning with the unique inner-spiritual connection Reb Shlomo taught us.

“Let’s go higher and deeper.” - Reb Shlomo Carlebach zt”l
