To Learn, To Understand...

Derech Etz Chaim provides an ambitious and exciting learning program that gives you the ability and confidence to carry on a life of independent Torah learning and growth. The Yeshiva offers close guidance on a continual course of advancement that incorporates Torah as a means for individual development.
Through a close Kesher with your Rebbeim, coupled with a dynamic learning environment and small classes, you will lay the foundation upon which your future learning will firmly stand.

Derech Etz Chaim not only gives the opportunity for Talmidim to learn at a high level – but works closely together with the Talmidim to elevate them to levels they could not have achieved without attention and support.

We want our students to think and ask questions. High level Gemara Shiurim are interwoven throughout the learning day with Shiurim focusing on understanding the “Why” behind Mitzvos and Avodas Hashem, and encouraging our Talmidim to think about their lives and the direction in which they wish it to endure.

The connection the Talmidim have to the Yeshiva does not end with their time in Israel, but continues long after through programs and distance learning and visits back, while they continue on to college and their professions.

Derech Etz Chaim was founded by the Rosh Yeshiva, Rav Aharon Katz in 1998 and is located in the Har Nof neighborhood of Yerushalayim, bordering on the beautiful Jerusalem forest.
