Rabbi Yehoshua Weitzman is an Israeli Rosh Yeshiva.

Weitzman was born in 1949 in Tel-Aviv. Following five years of study at Yeshivat Kerem B'Yavneh, he learned for three years under the auspices of Chief Rabbi Shlomo Goren and Rabbi Sha'ar Yeshuv Cohen. He then served as a Ra"m and mashgiach at Yeshivat Kfar Ha'Roeh and later as Rosh Kollel in Yeshivat HaGolan, Hispin.

In 1989, when Yeshivat Ma’alot Ya’akov was about to close down due to lack of students, Weitzman was appointed Rosh Yeshiva. Since his appointment, Yeshivat Ma’alot has grown from 60 students to over 300 students. Today, Yeshivat Ma’alot is one of Israel’s largest Hesder Yeshivot with a large intake of Israeli students.

Rabbi Weitzman is considered the reviver of learning and teaching Torat Eretz Yisrael, the uniqueness of Torah, which is revealed only in the Land of Israel. Weitzman is also the founder of Nachalat Shay, association for teaching Judaism and El-Ami Batzafon, a movement for outreach and Face to Face, (פנים אל פנים), a movement for unity of Jews.

He has spoken out against protests made by IDF soldiers against Gaza outpost evictions and demolitions.
