1209 Orthodox American Jews are currently enrolled in Israeli Yeshivot, according to the Jewish Agency-American Section.

Zvi Assael, director of the Agency’s Torah Education and Culture Department, noted the movement of American Yeshivot to Israel as a new trend in American-Jewish education in Israel. There are four such academies in the Jerusalem area and one in Natania.
