Darkaynu is the first and only program to fulfill the dreams of young men with special needs by giving them the same opportunity to spend a year learning and touring Israel. They will connect to their roots, learn to live independently, build self-confidence, and generally experience the feeling of being just like everyone else, just like their typical peers.

Our Campus & Location

The Elaine and Norm Brodsky Yeshivat Darkaynu program was developed for religious young men with special needs who are looking for the perfect way to spend a year in Israel. The program is designed for students who want to continue their learning, develop vocational skills, build independence, improve self-esteem and expand their love of Israel and the Jewish people.

Yeshivat Darkaynu is a unique program that “sidestreams” with Yeshivat Har Etzion students. It is an intimate program that is professionally staffed, highly structured and aims to meet the individual, special needs of its students.
