Mission Statement and History
The Yeshiva's underlying goal is to cultivate yirat shamayim as part of a life of Avodat Hashem. The yeshiva accomplishes this by developing Talmidim’s appreciation of Talmud Torah and its connection to Am Yisrael, Eretz Yisrael.
Yeshivat HaKotel was founded more than 40 years ago. The underlying goal of the Yeshiva is to provide its students with a fundamental and intimate connection to Torat Yisrael as it impacts on Am Yisrael in Eretz Yisrael. There is no better place to accomplish this three-fold goal than at Yeshivat HaKotel in the Old City of Jerusalem. The Old City enhances both the emotional and intellectual components of Torah learning. Only someone who has personally experienced this can fully comprehend this added dimension.
