The dream of building Jerusalem around Har HaBayit in general and  Ma’aleh HaZeitim, in particular, is becoming a reality,  The redemption of Jerusalem from our enemies is continuing, and beautiful spacious buildings are welcoming more and more Jewish families who are coming to live opposite Har HaMoriya.

It is fitting for a precious and important neighborhood such as Ma’aleh HaZeitim to have a spiritual center that nurtures our aspirations for Geula. With this in mind, Mr. Yehezkel Heller last year initiated the establishment of a Beit Midrash for studying matters related to the Beit HaMikdash.

Over a hundred years ago, when the renewed Jewish settlement of Eretz Yisrael was just beginning, our rabbi and teacher the Chofetz Chaim, ztz”l, called for a return to the study of the subjects concerning the building of the Beit HaMikdash and its service, but few answered this call.

As part of the rebuilding of Jerusalem, we must also lay the foundations for learning about the service of the Beit HaMikdash in the heart of the city. We have invited the most outstanding rabbis and Torah scholars to our Beit Midrash, where they are learning about the sacrifices, the sanctity and the structure of the Beit HaMikdash, as recorded in the Gemara tractates on these subjects.

This Beit Midrash also publishes booklets and articles to renew and clarify these subjects among a broader public of Torah scholars.
