‘Yeshivas Maaras HaMachpela named after Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag/“Nachshon’s Gallery” 3


  • One of the fascinating locations of Hebron today which combines both the theme of the Sanctuary/mini-sanctuary and its artistic aspects described in this parsha is the Bais Medrash of ‘Yeshivas Maaras HaMachpela named after Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag (‘Baal HaSulam’)’, which operated under the auspices of the world-known artist Baruch Nachshon who had earlier established his art gallery there [hence this location’s additional name “Nachshon’s Gallery”]. This Bais Medrash hosted the first Torah institution to return to the heart of Hebron since the Tarpat Massacre (1929). However, after the Goldstein affair of Purim 5754 (1994), the yeshiva was evacuated by order of the security forces and this Bais Medrash ceased to operate. After 22 years of abandonment, with HaShem’s kindness, a Kollel, Kolle Hatzos Maaras HaMachpela, has returned to this Bais Medrash to return its glory!
