Yeshivat Talpiot offers a unique full-time, egalitarian learning experience for Israelis in Jerusalem. By creating an open religious community that includes prayer, learning, and social action, we provide a space fusing traditional and academic modes of learning, where religious life and commitments shape our actions beyond the learning space.
