YBS Mainstreaming


Mainstreaming is a vital part of our program  to allow the students to integrate and be able to reach their growth and potential in a regular American Yeshiva program. The students mainstream with Yeshiva Mevaseret Zion students  for davening, meals, afternoon Torah classes and lectures, chesed program, special activities, and tiyulim.  Half of the curriculum of Yeshiva Bnei Simcha is dedicated to mainstreaming our students. The Torah classes that are offered are: Life Cycles, Sephardic Halacha, Know Thyself, Why Am I Doing This, The Parsha Within, Prophet Profiles, Pirkei Avot, and Independent Study Program.
