THE LAND OF ISRAEL
Experiencing Eretz Yisrael is a central part of your year in Israel and we hope to instill a true love for Israel in every student. In addition to celebrating the modern day miracle of the State of Israel, special emphasis is placed on learning about the religious significance of Eretz Yisrael, especially the Mitzvot HaTeluyot BaAretz. We are proud of the many graduates who have made aliyah and served in the IDF. Additionally the Yeshiva fosters an appreciation for the IDF, protectors of our land, especially for those Migdal students who choose to continue on after Yeshiva to serve.
The State of Israel faces challenges from around the world. BDS, anti-Zionism, college anti-Israel activities all create an atmosphere that is hostile to the Israel lover and advocate. Many of our students attend secular college, and therefore must be prepared to help defend the State of Israel. We are committed to ensuring that our students have the knowledge, answers and skills to not feel threatened but face the challenge of the enemies amongst us. True advocates are never only the defensive. Israel advocates pro-actively stand up for Israel in their communities, on campus and in the halls of Congress. Migdal HaTorah aims to instill in its students the ability and drive to proactively advocate for Israel in many different areas.
