The YU Torah Mitzion Kollel provides many Torah opportunities for elementary and high school aged children both in and out of school. We offer weekly, monthly, and special series throughout the year to give kids an exciting, positive Torah experience. 

 

A key experiential learning program at Arie Crown and Hillel Torah is the Monarch Beit Midrash on Wheels Program, which provides the 8th grade students with hands on Torah learning in areas of Jewish life not addressed in the classroom setting.
