The Harry Fischel Institute for Talmudic Research ("Machon Harry Fischel") is a Yeshiva in Jerusalem focusing primarily on the training of dayanim (religious court judges). It was founded by the American philanthropist Harry Fischel in 1931. Over the years, the institute has produced a very large number of religious court judges.[1]
