Beit Shemesh

Located in Ramat Beit Shemesh, Kehillas Shivtei Yeshurun (KSY) is spreading a message of unity, inclusion, commitment and community, maintaining a steadfast devotion to Torah values. KSY is a community of mostly English speaking olim, from places as diverse as the US, UK, South Africa, Australia, Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Mexico, Russia, Canada, France, Tunisia and Honduras, whose main commonality is a sincere desire to serve Hashem. Under the inspirational leadership of Rabbi Yaacov Haber, the Beis Midrash is buzzing with the sound of learning. People are growing in their Yiddishkeit and closeness to Hashem, and finding a spiritual home in a community of people who really care for each other. KSY aims to facilitate the absorption of the whole family into Eretz Yisrael in a genuine Torah environment, by creating a warm and supportive community structure for English speaking families that have chosen to build their lives in Israel, easing the difficulties inherent in Aliyah. The only thing KSY lacks is a building big enough to house its burgeoning membership, and to act as a suitable base for spreading our vision. We have been allocated a location for building a new shul, and we have prepared architectural plans and models. Everything is ready – except the funds. The budget for our building is US $2,000,000.
