2. Entrance Process

Informational Presentations in North America and the UK:  We will be visiting most of the major Yeshiva High Schools so please check with your Israel Guidance team or contact us directly for schedule information. In addition, we will be presenting at various Israel fairs in the NY/NJ area (Monday, November 13 - Wednesday November 15, 2023). The YU/Stern Open House also hosts an Israel fair (Sunday, November 12, 2023 from 2:00pm-4:00pm). 

Virtual Israel Fair: Sunday, November 19, 2023.  Link and registration information will be made available closer to the date. 

Interviews:  Interviews will mainly take place in December (in certain cities they will take place in November when we visit). When necessary, interviews via Zoom can be coordinated as well.

What can you expect at an interview?  Just a good conversation and nothing tricky.  Just be yourself!  We will also learn some Torah with you – no need to prepare anything in advance. 

Entrance Exercise: As part of the application process, we will also ask you to take a written exercise based in Chumash. You don’t need to prepare for it!  The exercise will be administered in most Yeshiva high schools.  If you attend a school that doesn’t have a guidance office that is in touch with us regularly, we will email you with the exercise for you to take on your own. 

Forms: Please make sure you send in your high school transcript (grade reports if you live outside of the USA or Canada and therefore aren’t issued a transcript) and medical forms (including immunizations) along with your application. 

3. Acceptance

You will be notified on (or near) Sunday, February 4, 2024 as to your status.

Registration: Once you have been accepted you will have until Sunday, February 18, 2024 at 11:59pm (Israel time. 4:59pm EST) to register and pay the non-refundable deposit.
