Ashkelon Orchot Chaim Yeshiva

(Please see letter of recommendation from Rav Aharon Feldman Shlit"a below)

BS"D

Ashkelon is a southern coastal city of 150,000 inhabitants, 5 miles from the Gaza Strip. After the establishment of the State of Israel, new immigrants from Arab countries settled there.

In Ashkelon, a large part of the population lives in economic distress, which also causes mental and intellectual distress. It has many single-parent families. In these circumstances, there is concern for the future of children and youth from families of poverty and anguish.

We decided to establish a complementary educational framework in order to instill moral values and knowledge in the spirit of Judaism. We established an educational framework in Ashkelon, a kind of integration of a yeshiva with a training, education and counseling center.

We are called "Orchos Chaim" which in English is "the ways of life". We have a number of tracks: afternoon and evening classes and day studies.
 

Each student is provided with private lessons.

The goals we set for ourselves:

1. The acquisition of Jewish values, with an emphasis on morality and values ​​and love of man, as expressed in the sages of blessed memory "Love your neighbor as yourself"
2. Teaching Jewish life through the Mishnah, Gemara, and Mussar from the level of beginners to the level of a regular yeshiva..

3. A framework that absorbs with love young men who have dropped out of school and are at risk.
4. Building the personality of damaged and neglected youth and turning them into functional boys who benefit themselves and contribute to society.
5. A short educational framework for high school graduates before enlisting in the IDF, in order to prepare them to serve as soldiers who sanctify God's name with values ​​and proper Jewish behavior, and strengthen the IDF as the most moral army in the world.
6. Removing the young people from a state of mental and spiritual distress, building and strengthening their personalities in order to establish families and be ready to run a Jewish home in a healthy and patient relationship with well-groomed children.
7. Outreach to converts and their integration into Jewish life.

For two years now, dozens of boys and girls have passed through us, but our budget is limited and lacking, forcing us to restrict the arrival of newcomers knocking on our doors.
Our staff is experienced and knowledgeable and does its work with devotion and love.

• We have a kitchen and dining room that provides meals for our students.
• We provide dormitories and living quarters for those who need it.
• Due to their financial situation, parents do not pay tuition.

Our aim is to absorb hundreds of boys, soldiers and army graduates from Ashkelon and its surrounding areas who want to join us.
We need generous financial partners who will share the economic burden and will be partners in the educational and spiritual achievements. The reward will be great and include gratitude and blessings from our students, from us, and from the Creator of the Universe.
By participating in this project, you are a partner in strengthening the State of Israel and turning it into a light unto the nations.

In gratitude and many thanks
Rabbi Yaakov Beitler
Rosh Yeshiva

Letter from Rabbi Aharon Feldman Shlit"a

Oct. 31, 2016

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

I would like to recommend the Yeshiva of Ashkelon headed by Rabbi Yaakov Beitler which I have heard from reliabe sources does wonderful work bringing Israeli students close to Judaism.

These young people would be spiritually lost to our people if not for the Torah ideas and way of life which this Yeshiva imparts to them.

Supporting this Yeshiva means supporting the growth of Torah in Israel.

With blessings,

Rabbi Aharon Feldman
