Givat HaMivtar (Hebrew: ####) is a neighborhood in the city of Yerushalayim with a substantial Chareidi and Anglo Chareidi presence.
There are several hundred families in the neighborhood.
Over the last 15 years has become increasingly Chareidi. There is also a mix of religious Sephardi including bnei Torah, as well as Mizrachi. The Americans are from diverse backgrounds, including yeshivish, working, and baalei teshuvah. Many are young. The Anglo community is about two-thirds settled and one-third transient (planning to be in Eretz Yisroel for just a few years).
