Overview

Tour with Beit OrotBeit Orot represents the first living Jewish presence in two millennia on Har Hazeitim, the Mount of Olives, in Jerusalem, filling an integral role in the reclamation and development of crucial historic areas of the Jewish capital. The Irving Moskowitz Yeshiva & Campus, a hesder yeshiva, is the nucleus of a new Jewish neighborhood on the strategically crucial northern ridge of Har Hazeitim. By virtue of its location and philosophy, Beit Orot is at once defending the sacred traditions of our nation, the physical security of Eretz Yisrael and the integrity of Yerushalayim as the undivided capital of Israel and the Jewish people.

Programing and activities are focused on:

- Reclamation and redevelopment of the historic Mount of Olives Ridge in northeastern Jerusalem, an area adjacent to Hebrew University’s Mount Scopus Campus and the new Command and Staff College of the Israel Defense Forces.

- Furthering Jewish identity and connection to the city of Jerusalem and its heritage through means of inspirational tourism and informal education on and around the Mount of Olives Ridge.

- Fostering the next generation of authentic and highly motivated Jewish leadership through the educational framework of hesder, combining traditional scholarship with military service.
