Machon Yaakov is located in a fully refurbished, stand-alone villa overlooking the vast Jerusalem Forest. If you’ve ever visited the Yad Vashem museum, you can see our building from there. The 5-story villa is located in Jerusalem’s Har Nof neighborhood, an established and growing Israeli/American neighborhood. The building holds expansive and unobstructed views of the forest, valley, and outlying hills toward the North of Israel. It contains classrooms, offices, 3 floors of dormitory rooms, a large and well-lighted beit midrash (study hall), dining room & kitchen facilities, and a laundry room.

Additionally, Machon Yaakov has an outdoor, half-court basketball area, several terraces, a gym/weight room, and a large student lounge equipped with high-speed WiFi, and two American phone lines.
