Bnei Rachel Yeshiva

"Veshavu Banim Ligvulam..."

"The very thing is very honorable that there should be an estate for Israel near the aforementioned holy and beloved tomb, and especially if it is possible to build in its name some holy institutions worthy of this place, such as Kibbutz Talmidim Tzadikim engaged in Torah and prayer. Of course, the thing that is necessary with this is that there should be a yeshuve, settlemet." (Rabbi Kook zt"l)
