About the Yeshiva

ישיבת עטרת ירושליםYeshivat Ateret Yerushalayim, was established 30 years ago, and is located in the heart of the capital of Israel – The Old City of Jerusalem.

Since its establishment 30 years ago, Yeshivat Ateret Yerushalayim has resided in the heart of the (liberated) Old City.

The Yeshiva is the spiritual epicenter of a community of almost 1000 residents in the heart of the Old City in the so-called "Moslem" Quarter.  This area was in fact, prior to the Arab riots, largely inhabited by Jews.  It is on this historical basis that we refer to it now as the Renewed Jewish Quarter.

In keeping with the educational goals of our Rosh Yeshiva, Ha-Rav Shlomo Aviner Shlit"a, the Yeshiva's approximately 2000 graduates have established themselves in a wide variety of professions fields.  Dispersed throughout the country, these men now serve as heads of educational institutions, pre-military and other yeshivot, as senior IDF officers and in key security positions.  Others are active in law, media, hi-tech, management and business.
