The Bnei Akiva Yeshivas held the fourth annual Yagdil Torah conference at Netiv Meir Yeshiva and the sponsors of the program, Benjamin and Susan Lande, were on hand to mark the occasion.

The Yagdil Torah program encourages students at the yeshivas to learn Jewish Law above and beyond what the yeshiva requires.

In the fourth year of the YBA Yagdil Torah Project, over 1500 students participated in two separate Talmud study programs.

“Our students will be the future doctors and lawyers and scientists of this country,” Benjamin Lande told Israel National TV, and agreed with his wife Susan when she added “generals” to the list of vocations. “We want first and foremost that they will be great Torah scholars and they will be leaders of the Jewish people in all fields,” he explained.
