The Beit El Yeshiva (Hebrew: ישיבת בית אל‎) is a Religious Zionist yeshiva situated in the Israeli settlement of Beit El, a community in the Binyamin region near Ramallah in the West Bank.


The Yeshiva was founded in late 1977 by a group of students from the Mercaz haRav yeshiva in Jerusalem. The students originally lived on a nearby army base, but today the yeshiva has its own premises, and over 250 students enrolled. The Rosh Yeshiva is Rabbi Zalman Baruch Melamed.
