DBY (Diaspora Basketball Yeshiva) is a one of a kind yeshiva that emphasizes the synthesis of the physical with the spiritual. In addition to daily Torah study, trips, and personal and group development, students will also train (basketball skills, strength and conditioning) twice a week and play at least one game a week. Training will take place at the yeshiva’s brand new state of the art basketball court, “The Braun Pavilion,” which is situated on Mt. Zion overlooking Har Habayit.
Skill development will be led by Coach Tamir Goodman who played Division 1 college and professional basketball without playing on Shabbat. Tamir has trained thousands of players from across the globe at his camps and clinics, including many professional players, and has worked extensively with leading NBA coaches and trainers. Tamir is also a published author, educator, inventor and entrepreneur and living role model. He is looking forward to working with the students on the court which will also help them reach their potential off the court.
