ABOUT Shapell’s

David Shapell College of Jewish Studies/Yeshiva Darche Noam

is the premier institution in Jerusalem dedicated to helping college graduates and young professionals grow in their Jewish life and learning. With a talented faculty of rabbis from varied backgrounds and perspectives, we’ve been helping English-speaking young men from around the world nurture their souls and develop their Torah learning skills in Gemara, Chumash, Halacha, and Hashkafa since 1978.
