Makor Chaim was established in 1985 by the late Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz together with Rabbi Dov Singer, who continues to lead the organization for over 38 years. In more recent years, he was joined by Rabbi David Rabinowitz as co-Rosh Yeshiva.

Makor Chaim is renowned for the unique educational methods developed by Rabbi Dov Singer, which empower the creation of an honest, deep and attentive relationship – between the students and teachers, between man and his G-d and between man and himself. The original tools we developed reveal a deep correlation between our unique educational culture and the academic and spiritual success of those who study with us.


3 Buildings finished and now moving ahead with the magnificent Beit Midrash – this is the minimum we need in order to move. The campus is being built in a new area near the entrance to Neve Daniel – the very spot where “Derech HaAvot” – the ancient road travelled by our Patriarchs between Jerusalem and Hebron meets today’s Route 60. Indeed, this is the spot where the “Path of the Sons” meets the “Way of our Fathers!” והשיב לב אבות על בנים – ולב בנים על אבותם! The new campus will provide us with the sorely needed basis to expand our institutions, programs and influence on Israeli society. This is our answer to terror and the most suitable way to commemorate the three young boys and the awesome effect they had on the Jewish world at large.
