From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yeshivat Torat Shraga (or Yeshivas Toras Shraga)[1] is a post-high school yeshiva in Bayit Vegan, Jerusalem, Israel. Rabbi Avishai David is the rosh yeshiva. It is located on the Yeshiva University Israel campus and conducts its Torah study in the Beis Medrash with the Yeshiva University Gruss Kollel. The yeshiva works together with Eit Lilmod, a learning program, which combines learning and community service, for those who find a full day learning too strenuous.

Rabbi Avishai David is the rosh yeshiva. The dean is Michael Olshin. Rabbi Dr. Gil Elmaleh is the Director of the Eit Limod program.

Torat Shraga goes on many trips throughout the year including trips to the Golan, Tsfat, and the Negev. The Yeshiva also has several Chesed activities and trips to visit Gedolim. On both Yom Ha'atzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim the Yeshiva travels to various places.
