Yeshivat Mikdash Melech says

In 1972 Rabbi Haim Benoliel and Rabbi David Lopian, both born of a tradition steeped in Torah scholarship, set out to reawaken the Sephardic community to the spiritual goldmine lying dormant within them. With loving determination, they recruited 10 promising talmidim and built Mikdash Melech Rabbinical College, launching a spiritual renaissance throughout the Sephardic American community. Imbued with an immutable love for Torah, this initial minyan masterfully returned the crown of Sephardic spiritual heritage to the community as prominent rabbinical leaders, scholars, educators, principals, kollel founders, yeshiva administrators, youth directors and more. Together with the hundreds of alumni that followed, they continue to cultivate a new generation - committed to growth through adherence to mitzvot and diligent learning.

Mikdash Melech graduates continue to establish vibrant synagogues, yeshivot, and community educational programs in other Sephardic communities around the country and globe.
