Yeshiva University Programs Reach Out To Students From All Backgrounds

Since their respective launches in 2004 and 2005, Yeshiva University’s (YU) Mechinah Program and Basic Jewish Studies Program (BJS) have reached out to hundreds of young men and women around the world with limited Jewish backgrounds. Through specialized courses and extra-curricular activities, the programs offer students a hands-on Jewish learning experience. Students live and learn in a Jewish community committed to traditional values and contemporary thought, while simultaneously obtaining a degree from a top university.
