About MMJ

YESHIVAT MIKDASH MELECH, a pioneer in the American Sephardic Torah

Renaissance since 1972, made history in 1989 by establishing Mikdash Melech

Jerusalem. The Yeshiva was created in response to the need for a post-high school

English-speaking yeshiva in Israel, where young menfrom Sephardic communities

in the Diaspora would feel comfortable with their traditions.

By combining a warm and enjoyable atmosphere with highly talented and

approachable Rebbeim, MMJ instills true love for Torah in the hearts of its

talmidim, giving them the confidence and direction they need for a lifetime of



The Yeshiva's trademark curriculum is designed to provide its students, regardless

of their level, with the skills necessary to master independent, in-depth study in all

areas of the Torah. This goal is reached through a dual track Talmud course of

study that encourages the successful completion of a Masechta (tractate) of

Talmud each year. Halacha, with emphasis on Sephardic traditions and customs,

Humash with in-depth commentaries and commanding lectures on Navi, Tehillim,

Mussar and Rambam round out the full gamut of our

curriculum. In addition, on-campus recreation

facilities make the MMJ learning experience enriching

to the students' bodies, minds as well as their souls.


The opportunity to spend some of their formative

yearsin the environment of Eretz Yisrael, provides the

students with an unparalleled experience. Personal

visits and interactions with Hachamim and Rabbanim

as well as exhilarating and educational tours of holy

sites and historic places, significantly enhance the

students' Torah growth and world outlook.


Upon their return to their respective communities

and after establishing families of their own, MMJ

Alumni are well prepared to take a leadership role in

strengthening Jewish education and communal life.

Whether in a Rabbinical or teaching capacity or as laymen committed to Torah values and ethical conduct, our graduates are playing a vital role in the renaissance of Torah and Jewish life in Sephardic communities around the globe.
