The Yeshiva of Greater Washington–Tiferes Gedaliah prides itself on teaching the “whole child” as a crucial component of its mission to play an integral part in building the future of Klal Yisroel.
Rebbeim and teachers build lifetime ties by connecting with students on a personal level, while small classes enable the staff to cater to the individual needs of our students. The result is a well-rounded, well-educated graduate who is equipped and ready to make his contribution to the greater whole in both the religious and secular world.
One of our primary goals is to nurture our students’ growth in avodas Hashem and commitment to living as bnos yisrael. Our students are taught a Toras Chaim by passionate teachers who live what they teach and teach what they live.
We aim to meet every student where she is, and encourage her to own her learning and to take intellectual risks, to explore, to set — and meet—higher expectations for herself. Our teachers invite active questioning and discussion, and promote a growth mindset in the classroom so that students develop the confidence to embrace academic challenges and grow from them.
The Kollel enables YGW talmidim to continue their studies after marriage and achieve higher levels of personal growth. These formative years in Kollel allow talmidim of the Yeshiva to blossom into true talmidei chachamim, and take their rightful place amongst the ranks of bnei Torah in Klal Yisroel.
Members of the Kollel are encouraged to connect personally with both YGW students and community members, and actively provide one-on-one learning sessions, deliver inspirational shiurim, and host online Torah classes.
