Israel Year

TABC is proud of its mission to foster a love for Am Yisrael and Medinat Yisrael. We encourage our seniors to pursue a year of Torah study in Israel after graduation. The finest Israeli yeshivot have noted the excellence of our students’ middot as well as their knowledge and skills.

TABC strives to maintain a strong connection with our alumni during the year of study in Israel. Rabbi Ezra Wiener, Judaic Studies Principal, is in contact with the students several times during the year via email and phone. Many other members of the faculty are in touch with students throughout the year as well. Mr. Arthur Poleyeff travels to Israel in November to accompany many of our alumni to Chevron for Shabbat Parshat Chayei Sarah. Our rebbeim travel to Israel in January, prior to intersession, to meet with the students in their various yeshivot. They speak with each student individually and meet with various rebbeim and Roshei Yeshiva. Rabbi Yosef Adler and Mr. Poleyeff visit the students during the January break where they have an opportunity to visit many yeshivot and gather the students together for an annual TABC Melaveh Malka.
