MInistry of Education recognizes YBA Givat Shmuel for academic excellence

YBA Givat Shmuel was recently awarded the Ministry of Education’s prize for Academic Excellence in the religious sector for 2014-5. The prize recognizes schools that have a steady track record of scholastic improvement in the past decade.

The school’s Robotics Club is an example of this improvement. In the past three years it has won 1st prize and 3rd prize in the Ministry of Education’s national competition, co-sponsored by the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. Furthermore, 94% to 98% of the school’s graduates achieved full matriculation for entrance to university in the past five years consecutively.

“The yeshiva’s crowning glory is that we produce ‘Bnei Torah’," said Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Shraga Fruechter. "We try to build their character with Torah values while at the same time helping them to achieve excellence in the sciences and other disciplines.”

The mayor of Givat Shmuel, Yossi Barudniadded, “The municipality has worked closely with the yeshiva in recent years to help the school serve the sons of our town and achieve its mission: to train a new generation of leaders, who love the Torah, their nation and their land.”
