Continuing to spread the light of the
Rishon Letzion Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu ztz”l,
who was known as the Father of all Israel

Ateret Mordechai Eliyahu in Rehovot
A house of Torah and chesed

The house of Torah and chesed, Ateret Mordechai Eliyahu in Rehovot, was founded by the student of our teacher Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, ztz”l, Rabbi Yigal Even Danan shlit”a, on Rabbi Zechariah Madar St. in the city of Rehovot. The multi-story building houses a Beit Midrash and activities for spreading light and chesed to the local community and beyond.

The learning center and the chesed association operate in many circles, all emanating from the special connection and love of Israel in the spirit of Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu.

The association is a recognized NPO for tax-deductible donations in Israel, the U.S., England and Canada.
