The world's first Kassam-proof Beit Midrash (Torah study hall) was dedicated recently, in the presence of dozens of rabbis, students, parents and guests of the Hesder Yeshiva in Sderot. The Yeshiva, founded in Sderot 15 years ago, serves over 500 students who combine advanced Talmudic studies with military service in the Israel Defense Forces.
