Har Bracha Publications

The Har Bracha Institute of Publications is an organization that deals with the publication and distribution of research and spiritual creativity stemming from the ‘beit midrash’ of Yeshiva Har Bracha. A team of researchers labors over the development and dissemination of the wisdom of Torah in numerous and diverse ways.


The crowning glory of the Institute is the writing, editing, and distribution of the Torah creations originating from the ‘beit midrash’ of Yeshiva Har Bracha: “Pninei Halachah”, “Revivim”, the books of Rabbi Tzadok HaKohen from Lublin, explanations of the writings of Rabbi Kook, and the series “Bina L’itim”.

In addition, the Institute is a partner in the publication of many other Torah works.

Study Programs for Schools

We have created a special team whose goal is to raise the level of study of halachah in religious-Zionist schools. In association with Ministry of Education and numerous high schools, the team works to create new and interesting scholastic programs to fit the needs of the students based on the series “Pininei Halachah”.

The team has been very successful in deepening the study of halacha, both in quality and quantity, and in raising the level of Torah study in the school system.

The series “Pininei Halachah” has been incorporated into the scholastic curriculum of many Yeshivot and Ulpanot throughout the country, and a matriculation exam has been approved by the Ministry of Education based on the series.

Study Programs in History

Post-Zionistic tendencies are trickling into, and gaining control over both the religious and non-religious State-run educational system. The field of history and in particular the study of modern history, including Zionism, the Holocaust, and the establishment of the State has become the preferred target of anti-Zionist organizations in Israel. Pacifism, universalism, and post-Zionist attitudes receive expression in scholastic books written by them, and seep into the consciousness of the students through history classes.

In order to prevent this severe erosion, and to save the young generation of the State of Israel from brainwashing and falsifications, the Institute has initiated the production of a series of history books for religious and non-religious elementary and high school students.

There is a great need for books on a high level, both from the aspect of its content and research, and also from its visual design, that will be suited to the most recent course of study for matriculation exams as outlined by the Ministry of Education.

The Institutes’ team has made initial headway in this matter, contacting both professionals who specialize in researching anti-Zionist tendencies in scholastic books and top-line professional researchers and writers in Israel.

The Institute is seeking a financial supporter for this colossal project.

Torah and Secular Wisdom

The Institute is a partner in the publication of additional books dealing with the relationship between Torah and science. One of the scientists that the Institute assists in publishing his books is Professor Benjamin Fain.

Professor Fain is a world-known physicist who was a ‘refusenik’ and fought the K.G.B.

Upon immigrating to Israel he was accepted as physics lecturer in the chemistry department of Tel Aviv University.

The Har Bracha Institute of Publications is a partner in the publication of his books with the goal of advancing and deepening interest in these topics amongst the Torah community.

Jewish Identity

The Institute has published additional books dealing with culture, creativity, and Jewish identity.
