Yeshivat Mitzpe Yericho


The Yeshiva's Vision

The yeshiva’s vision includes the following three points:

Learning in Order to Teach

The primary goal of the yeshiva is to transmit the Torah to future generations. Torah and Torah values have enabled our nation to survive for thousands of years, but the return of the Jewish people to Eretz Yisrael has raised new opportunities and challenges in transmitting the Torah to modern times. The yeshiva strives to prepare its students to serve the Jewish people by helping the students forge a profound connection with the Torah and how it relates to our generation.

To this end, many of our alumni have assumed the role of rabbis, leading communities across Israel and around the world. Furthermore, many of our graduates and their families actively participate in Torah-based communities (garin torani) around Israel, connecting people of all backgrounds and levels of observance to the rich tapestry of Jewish tradition.

Torah of the Land of Israel

The yeshiva believes that there are certain elements of Torah that are uniquely studied and internalized in Eretz Yisrael.

Growth in Torah includes involves process through which each individual develops their own inner sense of fulfillment and closeness to Hashem. As a person grows spiritually, he also develops a profound sense of purpose in life, as well as cultivates his middot and his disposition towards others. The natural spirituality of Eretz Yisrael is uniquely conducive to this type of growth.

Our yeshiva also encourages the development of different components of the Torah. Our curriculum encompasses the study of Talmud, Tanach, Mishnah, Emunah, and Chasidut, as well as developing other aspects of the student’s spiritual world, such as connection to music. The diverse areas of study empower each student to forge his own unique path in Torah study and development.

The yeshiva also encourages Torah study involving connection to other Jews with different backgrounds and customs. We stress the importance of respecting and admiring diverse traditions and cultures brought from all different parts of the world, all of whom have a place in Eretz Yisrael today. To this end, students learn about, and experience, both Ashkenazic and Sephardic traditions in the yeshiva.


A Life of Mission

The yeshiva sees itself as emissaries of the Torah and Judaism in all walks of life, dedicated to impacting upon all aspects of the world.

Our goal is to nurture pioneers – Torah scholars, leaders, and innovators, each in their own field, who can bring Torah values to the rest of the world – in education and the military, in the media, arts, and theater, in business and high-tech, in technology and medicine. In this generation, we bear a special responsibility to connect the people of Israel, in Israel and around the world, to their Jewish identity. Each person, wherever he finds himself, is an emissary for bringing God’s presence and the meaningfulness of Torah to others.
