Construction began on apartment buildings in eastern Jerusalem for married students attending a nearby yeshiva.

Work clearing the land for the three buildings for Yeshivat Beit Orot, funded by American businessman Irving Moskowitz, began Wednesday. The 24 apartments on the Mount of Olives Ridge will be located a short walk from the Hebrew University campus.

“We are joyful and honored to commence the construction of our new neighborhood which strengthens the Jewish presence in united Jerusalem and stresses the fact that Jerusalem is the home of every Jew in Israel and throughout the world,”  yeshiva head Rabbi Dani Isaac said in a statement on the yeshiva’s website.

The Jerusalem municipality approved the construction in May. Construction is expected to be completed in one year.
