FORTIFICATION OF DORMITORIES
During the 2nd War in Lebanon it became clear that we would have to carry out major renovations�to fortify�the Yeshivah dormitories, most of which are not adequately fortified against Katyusha attacks.� With the help of a number of donations from organizations and generous individuals, we have begun the rebuilding process.��We aim to ensure�a secure future for students and staff.�
GRADUATE INCENTIVE PROGRAM
In order to ensure that the best Jewish educators remain in the periphery, the Yeshivah offers a grant program that partially subsidizes housing and academic studies towards a Bachelors of Education degree as part of the Hesder track.� To encourage at least 4 additional young married couples to join this endeavor beginning the academic year 2008, we offer them a monthly scholarship�extending over a period of 5 years.
For their part, the young couples will formally commit to remaining in Kiryat Shemonah for at least 5 years, and will also be required to participate in regular communal work, such as volunteering at the local branch of the Enosh Mental Health Association, activities with disabled children, one-on-one lessons with children suffering from learning disabilities, informal study sessions, etc.��We hope to offer the grant program to a total of 20 young couples by 2013.�
