In 1977 Yeshivat Birkat Moshe was founded to provide the two-year-old fledgling settlement of Ma'ale Adumim with a spiritual foundation. The hesder yeshiva was established in Elul of that year by two young scholars, Rabbi Haim Sabbato, and Rabbi Yitzchak Sheilat.
From an entering class of thirty-two students studying in the village's makeshift synagogue and sleeping in borrowed army tents, the Yeshiva has grown to be one of the country's premier hesder yeshivas, which now boasts a student body of close to 300 young men housed in a modern multi-building campus.
The Yeshiva is guided by a dedication to the ideals of the love of the Torah, the People, and the Land. The faculty, virtually all of whom have served in front-line units of the Israeli Defense Force, fully embodies these values.
In recognition of the fundraising campaign, the Yeshiva produced a new video portraying an image of the Yeshiva's vision since the Yom Kippur War, continuing until today.
