Derech Etz Chaim is located in the central Yerushalayim neighborhood of Har Nof. Har Nof is a full-service neighborhood with all the amenities and is within close distance to the central bus station with easy access to downtown Yerushalayim. Most of the Rebbeim and their families live in the neighborhood.
The Yeshiva building backs on to the Jerusalem Forest with beautiful views from the Beis Medrash,
dining room and almost every dorm room. There is a workout room, as well as a large terrace facing the forest, with area for Talmidim to relax during their down time. The Jerusalem Forest provides beautiful jogging and hiking paths readily accessible right out the back of the Yeshiva building.
The Yeshiva has access to local public basketball courts and rents indoor courts several times a week for the Talmidim.
Derech Etz Chaim has exciting tiyulim throughout the year to enable our students to have fun, bond, and to get the break they need once in a while. Tiyulim are fun and educational and allows the Talmidim to get to see and the many different areas of Eretz Yisrael.
Every In Yeshiva Shabbos is a special event. Every meal is set up first class and the food is delicious.
Oneg’s at Rebbeims homes, special Kiddush’s . At Derech Etz Chaim we want every Shabbos to be the most special Shabbos experience.
On Out -Shabbatot , students may stay in the dormitory and (given advanced notice) we will arrange for meals in the neighborhood. Out Shabbatot is a great time to eat over at your Rebbeim’s home who live locally and are anxious to host you.
