About Us

בית המדרש של ישיבת הכותל

Our Approach


American Friends of Yeshivat Hakotel, Inc is a non-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting continuing religious education for young adults in Israel and the US.


The miracles of the Six-Day War and the liberation of the Old City of Jerusalem inspired the founding of Yeshivat Hakotel. Facing the Kotel and in-sight of the Bet Hamikdash, Yeshivat Hakotel has for over 50 years been sharing a love of Judaism and an appreciation of the miracle of modern Israel with thousands of Israeli and overseas students.

One of Israel's leading hesder yeshivot, Hakotel combines Torah studies with army service, and has inspired soldiers whose dedication influences their serious efforts in the Beit Midrash. Yeshivat Hakotel has a world-famous overseas program, where boys from the US, Canada, and England have been privileged to study.
