Yeshivat HaKotel was founded 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.
The philosophy at Yeshivat HaKotel is to provide foreign students with a genuine Israeli experience by fully integrating them into the Israeli program. Overseas students dorm together with Israelis, an accelerated Ulpan facilitates integration, and unique tiyulim give each student the feeling of belonging to the Land.
Yeshivat HaKotel has long benefited from the presence and shiurim of a number of our generation's greatest gedolim. Rav Yeshayahu Hadari Shlit"a (Rosh Yeshiva) and Rav Avigdor Nebenzahl Shlit"a (Rav of the Old City) all offer special shiurim and are also available for inspiration and consultation.
Yeshivat HaKotel's forty year tradition makes it a special place to spend a year. The unique blend of exceptional Rabbeim, the close Rebbe-student relationship, and the dancing to the Kotel every Friday night are all a part of our unique Yeshiva. The thousands of Israelis and close to 2000 overseas students who have lived within our walls attest to the extraordinary experience that continues today.

Yeshivat Hakotel is a modern-Orthodox religious Zionist hesder yeshiva situated in the Old City of Jerusalem. The yeshiva overlooks the Kotel (Western Wall); hence its name. The Yeshiva is famous among tourists and tour guides for its entrance to the prayer plaza at the Kotel on Sabbath.
The yeshiva Hakotel is housed in a handsome building, with a study hall (beit medrash) overlooking the Temple Mount. The hall features an unusual Aron Kodesh, constructed in two halves separated by a window though which the Temple Mount can be seen.
For many decades, Yeshivat Hakotel has had a very popular program for foreign students. The head of this program was Rabbi Aharon Bina, son of Rabbi Aryeh Bina (1912-1994), one of Yeshivat Hakotel's founders. In recent years, Rabbi Bina has moved to Yeshivat Netiv Aryeh after Yeshivat Hakotel decided to limit the size of its foreign student program.
