mashgiach training program
To assist yeshivos in remediation services for students struggling socially or emotionally, a group of men were trained as Mashgichim in one year of intense classes on Stages of Development, Learning Disabilities, Emotional & Social Disorders, Empathy & Active Listening, and other Mental Health issues. Graduates commit to work as a Mashgiach for three years in the yeshiva which chose them as a candidate for the training program, with Torah Umesorah providing one year of supervision. Trained Mashgichim create a working relationship with the Principal and Rebbeim, while being an advocate for the students, thus creating an optimal environment for classes to function more effectively.

of graduates continuing on to Torah-true education
Torah education is only sustainable in a vibrant Torah home & community. One of the key components in the development of Torah commitment in dozens of American communities is PROJECT SEED, which, for decades, has been igniting the Torah spark among the unaffiliated. Yeshiva students, girls and Kollel couples spend their summers instilling Torah values within the hearts and minds of adults and children in communities throughout North America, and beyond, through Torah study, recreational events and day camps.
community development and outreach
A vibrant Torah communal life is vital to sustain Torah education. The Community Development and Outreach Department enables Torah study and observance in exponentially growing Jewish communities across North America. Founding and funding Community Kollelim, Shuls, Rabbinical leaders, Outreach Centers, and other institutions promoting a Torah life, enables the development of schools to provide Jewish education for each community's children, so pivotal for Jewish continuity.
