Incredible Opportunity!


The David Shapell z'l, Memorial Married Couples Fellowship
Yeshiva Darche Noam/Shapell's 
Shapell’s/Darche Noam is excited to announce the establishment of the David Shapell z’l Memorial Married Couples Fellowship.  The Fellowship will provide a married couple with outstanding academic and leadership potential a full scholarship, room and half board during the 5777 academic year. 

The fellowship includes full time learning in the regular programs for the husband at Yeshiva Darche Noam/Shapell’s and for the wife at Midreshet Rachel v’Chaya, in Jerusalem. In addition, the couple will benefit from special programs and classes throughout the year designed for couples seeking to build stronger marriages and homes, on the foundation of Torah.

We encourage observant young couples who are committed to Torah study, spiritual growth, and service to the Jewish community, to apply for this fellowship. Prior Yeshiva/Midrasha background is not a prerequisite, but previous learning experience is an advantage.

Midreshet Rachel V'Chaya
Shapell’s/Darché Noam enjoys renown for its structured approach to teaching how to access Jewish texts, its integration of different approaches in Torah Judaism, its diverse staff, and its high quality student body. With an emphasis on derech eretz and teaching a love of Israel, students are instilled with an appreciation of their uniqueness as individuals and responsibility as Jews. 

Built on the philosophy of  Deracheha Darché Noam, “the ways of the Torah are ways of harmony”, the Yeshiva and Seminary have facilitated the spiritual and personal growth of thousands of men and women. 

Over the years, our married couples program has proven to have a powerful long-term impact on the lives of its participants in building those families. 

The Fellowship was established in memory of our benefactor, David Shapell z'l.  Mr. Shapell (along with his wife Fela, tb'l) was particularly proud of the Torah families built by our alumni. We are proud to honor Mr. Shapell’s memory by making this extraordinary opportunity available to a deserving couple. 

Couples who wish to apply for the Fellowship should contact Rabbi Shimshon Nadel (Director of Recruitment) atrsn@darchenoam.org  to receive application information. 

For more information about the programs at Shapell’s/Darche Noam please visit www.darchenoam.org .

This is an incredible opportunity for a young, married couple.   Please spread the word to those who can benefit!
