"Ulpanat Amana – The Yeshiva High School for girls is founding a Zionist and Torah Beit Midrash, for our students coming from Abroad".
Ulpanat Amana, Kfar Saba, was founded about 57 years ago. Since its establishment, it has been associated with instilling Jewish values into its students as well as with pursuing educational leadership and excellence.
Amana's distinct vision has been based on Zionism, excellence and fulfilling the full potential of its students in the Torah, Social and educational domains.
In Amana, each student is assisted by the staff in developing a rich inner world of values, connected to the Torah, the Land and the People of Israel.
The Ulpana girls also reach high academic achievements. These accomplishments enable them to find personal fulfillment in any field of their choice, while simultaneously make it possible for them to significantly contribute to the Israeli society.
500 students merit to study at the Ulpana each year. Despite the great demand for studying at the Ulpana, the school board is careful not to expand beyond this number, so as not to lose the major tools of personal treatment and care which make it possible to reach the educational goals.
Amana has a unique and qualitative group of about 100 girls from abroad who wish to study in Israel. Both the management and the educational staff devote considerable resources to the success of this department. Its success is important in order to connect the girls to the teachings of Torat Eretz Israel and to deepen their religious - Zionist identity.
The students in the department come from 15 (!) different countries from all over the world. They are building their own character - and later upgrade their surroundings - in the spirit of Amana
Despite the many financial difficulties, Amana continued to operate even more intensely during the Coronavirus period, which was (and still is) difficult and challenging.
One of the needs that intensified during this period is the construction of a special Beit Midrash for students coming from abroad who will be integrated with Israeli girls. This is a long-existing necessity, but in the face of the crisis, it has intensified and has become particularly vital.
Such a Beit Midrash is supposed to give the girls from abroad who are determined to stay in Israel the framework they need in order to accomplish the absorption of Amana's conceptual and spiritual values.
In addition, this Beit Midrash will also help provide the girls who stay away from their families with the social and spiritual means they need.
Moreover, the Beit Midrash will serve as an additional framework for our Israeli students in raising their spiritual level and in deepening their social bond with girls coming from abroad.
