Shapell’s Campus & Accommodations
The David and Fela Shapell Campus
The Yeshivat Darche Noam/David Shapell College campus is located in the lovely Beit Hakerem neighborhood of Jerusalem. The Beit Midrash, classrooms, library, offices, dormitory, kitchen, and dining room are all housed in the beautiful David and Fela Shapell building, a former hotel, completely renovated in 1994. The library contains over 5,000 volumes. English-language books may be borrowed; Hebrew volumes are all on reserve for reference purposes. Students have access to fax and phone services and the classrooms and dormitory are WIFI.
A mature, responsible and highly motivated student body means there is little resemblance between life in the Yeshivat Darche Noam/David Shapell College residential wing and that in a university dormitory. Rooms are not large, but they are new and each has a private bathroom with a shower. Rooms are shared by three students, with individual closets and shelf space. There are also three self-contained apartments, each with its own kitchen, available for married couples who are both studying at Yeshivat Darche Noam/David Shapell College and Midreshet Rachel v’Chaya.
There are attractive grounds around the Yeshiva, but no exercise facility. Many students take advantage of outdoor basketball courts in the area, while others join local health clubs or swimming pools.
