CHALLENGE YOURSELF!

At YOM, we challenge you to learn and grow as a Ben Torah. You’ll experience high-caliber learning, probably finishing a mesechta or two each year. You’ll reach new heights in davening and yiras shamayim. You’ll impress yourself with your accomplishments.

It’s intense, but the yeshiva is constantly innovating new ideas, incentives, deals, and healthy recreational outlets. You’ll develop lifelong friendships with your chevrah. We keep the YOM atmosphere enjoyable and a strong momentum going.

DEDICATED REBBEIM

The rebbeim’s influence starts with engaging shiurim. Beyond the classroom, they are warm, relatable, and always available to talk. With compassion and experience, they’ll be a guiding force in your years at yeshiva. The rebbeim open their homes to you for Shabbos seudos, oneg Shabbosim, and countless other occasions. Alumni continue their relationships with their rebbeim even after graduating.

COMPLETING A MESECHTA

Imagine the satisfaction of knowing an entire mesechta. At YOM, it’s within your reach with our mesechta testing program for each grade. You’ll complete either the bekius mesechta or the main mesechta and celebrate with a grand siyum. The fortunate bochurim who make it to the finish line with an 85% average enjoy a 5-star Colorado ski trip the next winter.

REALIZING THEIR POTENTIAL

“THE GREATEST STRENGTH OF THE YESHIVA HAS ALWAYS BEEN AND CONTINUES TO BE THE FANTASTIC REBBEIM. WITHOUT A DOUBT, IT IS THE ENERGY, FIRE, PASSION, AND LOVE THE HANHALA, REBBEIM, AND TEACHERS SHOW FOR THE BOCHURIM THAT ALLOWS THE BOCHURIM TO BLI AYIN HORAH DEVELOP INTO B’NEI TORAH AND REALIZE THEIR POTENTIAL.”
Dr. Yitzchok Nussbaum Parent
MEALS
We understand that growing boys need excellent food. Prepared by our dedicated chef Mr. Ari Dorfman, meals are delicious and healthy, with a salad option each lunch and supper. The yeshiva provides all meals, including Shabbos, but you may eat out on Shabbos if you’re invited. Each Shabbos, a different rebbe eats at the yeshiva with his family. On Yom Tov, the yeshiva will set you up with some friends for meals in the community.
Parent Shabbos

Parent Shabbos is a highlight of the year. YOM parents experience the yeshiva firsthand, and we get to know them. The atmosphere is electric! It’s no surprise that there’s over 90% parent participation. The program includes all the Shabbos meals, a father/son learning seder, and a Motzei Shabbos hockey game and barbeque.

Looking forward to Parent Shabbos

"Everyone looks forward to Parent Shabbos. The food is delicious, the singing is beautiful, and the bochurim and rebbeim give divrei Torah. All the fathers want to go back to yeshiva again!"
Rabbi Menachem Kirshner Parent, Assistant Principal of Judaic Studies, Arie Crown Hebrew Day School
DORMITORY LIFE

At YOM, you’ll enjoy our brand new, beautifully constructed
dormitory with amenities.

•  Lounge area
•  Plenty of storage space 
•  Nightly dorm counselors
•  On-site coin laundry
•  Weekly dry cleaners’ pickup and delivery 

SPORTS

The yeshiva actively encourages sports. We built a brand new, state of the art, high school-sized gym with six basketball hoops and a retractable volleyball net. You’ll have gym class as part of General Studies, and the gym is available during breaks and at night. And you’ve probably heard of our famous winter Motzei Shabbos ice hockey leagues.

CELL PHONE POLICY

To protect all our bochurim, we do not allow smart phones in yeshiva. The yeshiva provides talk and text phones through the yeshiva plan only.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

The Minneapolis community embraces YOM bochurim, inviting them for Shabbos and Yom Tov meals. Bochurim give back to the community through mishmar learning with balei batim and community programs. Past successes include helping Tomchei Shabbos and offering ice-skating lessons for kids.

CALENDAR
