Yeshivat Hakotel 50th Anniversary Dinner

American Friends of Yeshivot Bnei Akiva is happy to invite all of our friends and supporters to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Yeshivat Hakotel, one of the flagship institutions in the YBA network. Yeshivat Hakotel was founded in the aftermath of Israel’s miraculous victory in the Six Day War, when the Jewish people returned to the Old City, and the city of Jerusalem was reunified. Facing the Kotel, and in sight of the Makom Hamikdash, Yeshivat Hakotel has for 50 years been sharing a love of Judaism and an appreciation of the miracle of modern Israel with thousands of Israeli and overseas students.  

The 50th anniversary wil be celebrated with a dinner on Tuesday night,
