Diaspora Yeshiva

Located on Jerusalem's Mount Zion, the Diaspora Yeshiva is a residential facility for students all over the world. 


StartUpRoots is providing Yeshiva students with the opportunity to learn Torah based sustainable entrepreneurship and business skills, while providing the Yeshiva and residents of the Old City with fresh chemical-pesticide free produce. The hydroponic facility in the Yeshiva employs students, saves water and reduces the carbon footprint.

The facility generously donated by Irving Backman & Associates/Acopia Harvest International in honor of Rabbi Yaakov Kent.
