The prestigious Torath Chaim Yeshiva, built in 1886 by Rav Yitzchak Winongrad of Poland, had at its peak, about 300 students from all over the world, including the late Rabbis Tzvi Pesach Frank, Tzvi Yehuda Kook, Yitzchak Herzog and Aryeh Levin. Forced to flee in the wake of the 1936 Arab riots, the Rosh Yeshiva entrusted the building and its contents to the Arab watchman who faithfully preserved it until the reunification of Jerusalem in 1967. This Yeshiva was the only one out of about 80 synagogues and yeshivot, which wasn't destroyed by the Jordanians.

The Ateret Cohanim Yeshiva, "Ateret Yerushalyim" headed by Rav Shlomo Aviner, is the spiritual focus for the return of Jews to their homes in the "Moslem" (once known as the Mixed) Quarter. Today this historic building serves as the main study hall for 150 students from all over the country, all of whom serve in the army. These boys dedicate themselves to Torah study out of love for Jerusalem and the Jewish people.

The Yeshiva also includes an Advanced Kollel Program for married students . The single students live in dormitories in the area or if they are married, live in homes located nearby in the Moslem or Christian Quarters.

Graduates have distingued themselves in many key positions - as Deans of Institutions, Community Rabbis and outstanding educators.
