Yeshivat Meir Harel/ Yeshivat Modiin


Yeshivat Modiin was established in 2005 and is part of the Hesder Yeshiva world devoted to both traditional Torah values, national and community service. The Yeshiva is situated in the city of Modiin. The Yeshiva educates its students to follow in the path of Harav Kookזצ”ל , to love the Torah, with a diligent devotion to deep Torah learning, Jewish Leadership, and love of the land and the nation.

Ever since the establishment of the State of Israel, the country leaders dreamed of reviving the ancient town of Modiin – a symbol of Hasmonean heroism and of the conservation of Jewish and national identity of the People of Israel. The establishment of the city in the 1990’s was the ancient Jewish dream coming true, signalling the vibrant Israeli revival. Modiin is situated in the heart of Israel. Only 25 minutes drive from Jerusalem and likewise from Tel-Aviv. Modiin is a fast developing city; thousands of families join the ‘city of the future’ each year. Modiin has a very high percentage of Olim and is very busy and successful at absorbing aliyah One of the aims of the Yeshivah is to lay down the spiritual foundations to the city and to be involved in all aspects of Israeli society.

Inspiring young people to excellence as soldiers and commanders in the IDF.
The Meir Harel Hesder Yeshiva high school project strengthens student awareness of the importance of meaningful military service, including the aspiration to shoulder responsibility as IDF commanders. Over the last year alone, our team of counselors met with over 350 high-school juniors and seniors from all over Israel in one-on-one and group sessions.
The program includes:
      Group and class activities.
Individual meetings with every student.
Ongoing contact throughout the academic year.
Seminars and preparatory activities in the yeshiva.
Meetings with graduates of the program and IDF officers.
After high school, many program participants have continued on to enlist in the IDF through our yeshiva’s unique Hesder program. Of these 65 students, almost half are currently     serving as officers and commanders of various ranks.
This year we are expanding the high school project, with the goal of reaching500 young people.
