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 men from 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 success.

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 years in the environment of Eretz Yisrael, provides thestudents 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.
