You can make a difference right now.
Your Donation to the Yeshivot and Ulpanot of Bnei Akiva will:

  • Support the Jewish education of our 25,000 students in Israel

  • Provide scholarships for needy yeshiva, ulpana, hesder, and mechina students

  • Promote religious Zionism by helping YBA educate Israel’s future leaders

  • Help Yeshivot Bnei Akiva grow, create new programs, and serve Israel

Here are some of our most pressing needs right now:                

  • Scholarships: YBA does not turn away any student for financial reasons. Sponsor a year of education for a student for $2,500, or any portion of that for a partial scholarship.

  • Security: Given recent events, there is a newly urgent need for upgraded security. For example, a bus can be made more secure for as little as $500.

  • Or Me’ophir: This initiative is a leadership program designed to serve young adults within the Ethiopian community. The cost for each student is $4,500 for the entire four-year program, or you can sponsor any portion of that for a partial scholarship.

  • March of the Living: It is a tradition for Israeli high school students to visit Poland to bear witness to the atrocities of the Holocaust so that it will never happen again. For many YBA students, the trip is not financially possible, but you can pay all the expenses for one student to take this life-changing journey for $1,300, or any part of that amount will be gratefully acknowledged by us and by the student.

  • Kinor David/Shirat HaYam: YBA has two schools -- one for boys and one for girls -- dedicated to the synthesis of Torah and musical studies. Gift opportunities include $2,000 for an amplifier and $50,000 for a recording studio, but any amount will help strengthen this innovative initiative.

  • English Director/Ofakim: The Negev community of Ofakim needs a director of English language programs, to allow students to pass their English entrance exams. It will cost $100,000 to hire a director, and a foundation has already agreed to cover $50,000. Please help cover the costs for this vital position in this under-served community.
