the Torah and helping those who wish to join the Jewish People.

We care about our students and try to help even after the process is finished.
As we've helped hundreds of people to become Jewish,
we want to help make your dream come true!
Why choose us
I always knew life had a deeper meaning. As I was getting closer to Judaism,
I met Rabbi Dinkevich, who received me with open arms
and accepted me right way INTO the Conversion Program.
Converting was the best decision of my life.
I recommend this program with all my heart.
I could never have done it on my own."
all the DOCUMENTS REQUIRED by the internal affairs office and the Rabbanut.
He was hands-on in the process every step of the way. I developed a great respect
for Rav Yosi because of HIS immense dedication to his work.
He is tirelessly answering the phone (at every hour of the day),
trying to help and to assist us, who attend his courses."
and still today I'm in touch with him, years after my conversion process has finished.
The effort he puts in for his students, both present and future students, is unparalleled.
Rabbanit Tamar is extremely knowledgeable and charismatic on any topic related to Judaism.
Both of them were and are my role models of what it means to be an observant Jew,
while giving unceasing support."
but because of the assimilation of my ancestors, I have been missing
the most important thing — and that was the Jewish soul
and the faith in Hashem. Thanks to Rav Yosi and his colleague,
I was able to learn all THAT WAS necessary to restore the broken line
in my family. During my studies (on the basis of faith) with Rav Yosi
and other Rabanim in the shiurim, I have seen his real heart
and interest IN people who are missing their connection
with Kadosh Baruch-Hu and their Jewish identity.
So hereby, I would like to encourage everyone who is their
and is searching for help in Giur to choose this wonderful program."
from Rav Yosi and Rabbanit Tamar.
It was and will be one of the best experiences of my life.
During the course I always had help, given advice and got to learn a lot from them.
They are exceptional and dedicated people who care about each of the students
and have the experience to guide and give you the answers
on this beautiful path to Judaism."
As a new person in the country and school, I felt safe and cared for. If I had any problem,
I could always count on his help. The classes were intensive. Rabbanit Tamar
was my Halacha teacher and she modernized the school with a group on telegram
where anyone from the course can ask any question they had.
Before the pandemic, we had small trips each month to get to know Israel
and our nation's history better. We had all sorts of parties around holidays
and other occasions. This shows how dedicated the staff were
and how much they cared for each and every student."
After EXPERIENCING hard upbringing and a failed marriage,
I knew I needed to make Aliyah to Israel, but I couldn't prove
I'm Jewish on my mother's side. I wanted to be a part of G-d's plan
and I couldn't. I contacted Rav Yosi and he made my dream come true.
I will never forget all the help, love, support and encouragement
they all gave me."
in my giur process. The learning was good and meaningful
and prepared me for Jewish life and Torah in the best possible way.
Rabbi Yossi was attentive to my questions and doubts and guided me
and helped me throughout. All the above was done with great love
and patience during the whole process, and I wholeheartedly recommend this program."
I was born in Romania to a Christian family, I was raised to believe
there was only one religion – Christianity.
Growing up, I always felt a strong connection to G-d while feeling out of place and unrelated.
Since I was young, I fell in love with music and at the age of 15 I left home to pursue it.
Nothing really fulfilled me. Later on I found a job on an Israeli cruise ship as a singer.
On the way to Israel and conversion
On the ship I met my future husband who was Jewish and my relationships with him drew me closer to Judaism.
With his help I started the conversion process to Judaism. It was difficult and straining, but it was worth it.
The lessons, of the course, were so amazing and fulfilling, that after finished my conversion
I decided that I too want to teach people Torah.
I continued studying Torah and after a few years Rabbi Yosi asked me to replace a teacher in the course.
I agreed, and I’ve been doing it for the past 12 years.
I believe that through my work I am fulfilling my destiny, and it has become my life goal.
Our course is very unique.
We believe that every person, has a special soul.
A soul that is coming home!
I was born in what was USSR (today Russia) in the city called Leningrad (today St. Petersburg).
In 1978 our family was able to leave the Soviet Union and move to the United States.
From USSR to the United States
Like most of the Jewish families in the Soviet Union, my parents knew almost nothing about Jewish life, traditions, and history, though we had a very strong Jewish identity imposed on us by the surrounding antisemitism, both non-Jews around us and the antisemitic policies of the Soviet State. Notwithstanding, my parents taught me to be proud of my Jewish heritage.
As we moved to United States we started learning and practicing Jewish customs and commandments, going to synagogue, eating kosher, etc.
After completing a university degree in Computer Science, I was working as a systems developer,
but my true desire was to study Torah. I had many questions, and I knew where to look for answers.
Aliyah and teaching Torah
My parents instilled in me love for the Land of Israel, and thus in 1991 I made aliyah
and went to study Torah full-time in a yeshiva for baalei tshuva in Yerushalayim.
After studying there for several years, I decided that my true calling is to teach Torah.
I went to another yeshiva which gave me an opportunity to prepare myself to teach.
After teaching at the yeshiva for a few years, I was asked to establish a giur (conversion) program.
I have been running it ever since.
In the 20-plus years that I have been doing this, many hundreds of students have become Torah-observant Jews and have built fulfilling lives. I am happy and thankful to HaShem to have a part in their success.
