Yeshivas Meorot Chabad in Jerusalem, which caters to religious high school graduates interested in studying for a year in Israel in a Chabad atmosphere, has lately come to an agreement with the University Center of Ariel.
Students in the Shluchim Office institution, directed by Rabbi Chaim Greenberg, will be able to gain academic points to the extent of 10% of the degree.
“Although the Yeshiva is already acknowledged by Touro College and MJI, two important academic institutions, this is certainly a significant breakthrough for us,” says Rabbi Uri Gamson, Rosh Yeshiva of Meorot.
“Many of our students are high school graduates, and plan on continuing on to higher education after spending a year with us. This University’s recognition gives them the opportunity to continue their studies in Israel or abroad.”
