Post High School Program
Tuition for the ‘13-‘14 academic year is $18,000 (this includes a $1500 non-refundable registration fee).
Any student who leaves the Yeshiva at any time is obligated to pay until the end of that semester.
The academic year is divided into 3 semesters:
- Elul, Tishrei, Cheshvan - 1/3 of tuition
- Kislev, Tevet, Shevat - 1/3 of tuition
- Adar, Nissan, Iyar - 1/3 of tuition
The balance of tuition must be paid with three postdated checks: one $5,500– dated August 7, ’13 the second for $5,500 dated November 3, ’13 and the third for $5,500 dated February 1, ’14 (assuming you have submitted the initial $1500 deposit).
Students who wish to continue with the Yeshiva through the optional summer zman may attend at a reduced cost of $700. This zman starts from the last official day of the post highschool program until Tisha B'Av. See here for the Academic Calendar.
Students who withdraw from the yeshiva before the official end of the year are responsible to pay for the entire semester of their study.
Students who withdraw within two weeks after the official starting date of the yeshiva are obligated to pay for a quarter of the semester.

We hope that financial hardships do not prevent you from spending a year learning in Eretz Yisrael. To that end, Bircas HaTorah has several options for those students who are unable to meet their tuition obligations. In addition, we strongly recommend that you contact your local Jewish Federation and synagogue to see if they have any scholarship programs for study in Eretz Yisrael.

Students should also apply to The Israel Scholarship Committee of the Foundation for Jewish Philanthropies as well as The Alisa Flatow Memorial Fund To discuss options for financial aid and other tuition related matters please contact us.
