I got the email below forwarded to me. It is originally from Rabbi Breslauer, director of the upcoming musical Yeshiva in Israel (1 year program for American students after high school). This program could help the talented younger generation in the LA Orthodox Jewish community:
Neginat HaTorah, The Organization for Torah and Music, is dedicated to developing projects that impart Torah values and Jewish culture to young adults through Jewish music, the medium of the Neshama. The first project will be the establishment of a post high school Yeshiva in Israel for the musically inclined. The organization is also planning to open Jewish music camps in Israel and in the United States. Our goal is to reach out to Jews everywhere by connecting Torah and music. Music provides the day to day rhythms of Jewish life, shared music unites the people of Israel.
Our Rosh Yeshiva is Rabbi Moshe Simkovich. The location of the Yeshiva will be at the beautiful campus of Givat Washington (right across the street from Kerem B’Yavneh). The musical program will be provided by the Mizmor school of music located on campus.
Our goal is to help those young men to become into dedicated bnei Torah and at the same time, better musicians.
