Introducing YBA's newest school: Ulpanat Shirat Hayam

"It is impossible to stop a creative soul from creating."
- Rabbi A.I. Hacohen Kook, 
Orot Hakodesh.

Opening Day at Ulpanat Bnei Akiva Shirat Hayam

The Yeshivot Bnei Akiva educational network in Israel opened its 74th school on September 1st, 2014: Ulpanat Shirat Hayam, in the Shomron town of Neve Tzuf (also known as Halamish).

The school is a musical high school for girls with creative souls, modeled after YBA's highly successful musical yeshiva high school for boys, YBA Kinor David, located just up the road, in the Shomron town of Ateret.

The school opened with 80 students in the 9th and 10th grades, and will expand one grade level a year in 2016 and 2017 to maximum capacity. The school will combine a traditional curriculum of Judaic Studies with intensive lessons in music and dance.
