Korean TV Visits Yeshiva in Bnei Brak
A TV crew from South Korean paid a visit to Ponevezh (Ponovitch) yeshiva in Bnei Brak to film a special about Talmud study. Israel's Channel 10 TV reported on the visit and followed the Korean crew as they filmed young students studying Gemara and other Jewish texts.
"The reason why we came was to see the real Talmud. Jewish people are known for [a high percentage of] Nobel prizes. The Korean people are curious about how Jewish people started and why Jewish people are so smart," the Korean journalist told Channel 10 TV. The TV crew also interviewed the yeshiva's Rabbi Meir Volk.
Ponevezh is a high level elite school for Talmud study located in Bnei Brak.
