עץ חיים היא למחזיקים בה

Two roads diverged in a wood,
And I − I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made All the Difference.

Derech Etz Chaim is focused on independence: independence in learning, independence in thinking and independence of the individual as part of the community. DEC offers a non-institutional environment, challenging you to think for yourself. You will be appreciated for who you are while you strive towards the realization of your unique potential. A close kesher (connection) with your Rebbeim coupled with a dynamic learning environment will help you lay the foundation upon which your future learning will firmly stand.

Small classes, top-notch facilities and dynamic Rebbeim are all key elements of the Derech Etz Chaim experience. Established in 1998, Derech Etz Chaim is widely regarded as one of the premier yeshiva programs catering to post-high school study in Israel.
The Yeshiva is located in Jerusalem's Har Nof neighborhood, overlooking the scenic Jerusalem Forest.
