South Africans have been coming

to study in Yeshivas in Israel

for over 50 years.


 It has never been easy. 


Homesickness combines with a new culture, a new language and different standards.


Chanichei haYeshivos Yotzei Drom Afrika (CHIDA – חיד”א) offers 


(i) A mature and responsible team who care and are available to advise and comfort.

(ii) A central office to organise Shabbos and other hospitality and keep tabs on on the bachurim.

(iii) events to unite and strengthen the yeshiva crowd as well as get-togethers to keep the home spirit strong
