Beitar Illit 


Beitar Illit is one of the most western towns in the Gush Etzion Block and was established in 1985. It is located about 10 Kilometers south west of Jerusalem. Today with the Blessing of G-d it is a flourishing city.  It is surely unique among them. One passing through thought to himself afterwards that this community should have a sign saying, "Holiness to Hashem" 


This is an ultra orthodox community. The 32,000 people who live here are dedicated to the Torah and the Traditions of our fathers. They observe the laws of family purity and strictly follow Halacha. The ruins of the ancient Jewish city of Beitar is only a kilometer away.



Those who are like-minded can find a Torah paradise where everything and everyone is Kosher. The town is an object of beauty. Obviously a blessing from HaKodesh Baruch Hu. The town is incredibly secure and crime is almost non-existent. Here Torah is King. 


At last count their were 26 schools and Yeshivas. What more can be said about this community. Come and have a look for yourself and say out loud to them, “How Lovely are your tents O’ Ya’akov.” 

As said already every one is religious and about 15 percent of them are English speaking. For the English there is an English speakers support group as well as an English speakers shul. Also Classes for men and women can be found here in English. Here every child goes to religious schools. There are 2 Yeshivas and a girl’s high school. 


There are health care facilities in the town and of coarse all the food stores sell only Kosher food. Baruch HaShem. One can find an Ashkenazi, Sefaradi and Chassidic Rabbi in the town.  This boys Torah Talmud school you see below  teaches the ways of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov. Feel free to direct Tzedakah toward this new emerging school.



Below is a Beit Ya'akov which is a girls high school. 



Another sign they have been blessed is that this town has the highest birth rate in the country. So if you Love children this may be your place. 

 Beitar Illit is an outstanding city which has won awards for balancing its budget 7 years in a row. It has been recognized for its beautiful design and won awards for being a clean city. Its a real oasis of goodness for Israel's Haredi community.

“Those who trust in HaShem are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so HaShem surrounds His people, from this time forth and forever.” Tehillim.125:1-2
