The Yeshiva of Newark was founded 15 years ago to serve bnei Torah as a unique “prozdor” from the world of the Bais Midrash to the world of earning a parnasah. Nestled in the heart of a successful world class corporation, our students, with vistas of the powerful New York skyline greeting them every day, gain the tools to navigate the modern world without sacrificing the values of authenticity and integrity provided by our rich mesorah.
Our talented and experienced staff features world class Rabbeim who work with each and every talmid, helping them discover the timelessness and relevance of chazal’s wisdom and how to align their thinking with the darchei haTorah. This attention, along with never losing focus on our mission to inculcate in our talmidim a deep “emesdik” relationship with haKadosh Boruch Hu, has produced well balanced bnei torah who are also motivated leaders and passionate askanim currently contributing to kehilas across the globe.
Young bnei Torah who are interested in earning a degree without leaving the serious pursuit of limud haTorah have been finding their way to our Yeshiva for a decade and a half. During that time the Yeshiva has worked hard to constantly improve, and, baruch hashem, the quality of our degrees as well as our seder limud has seen tremendous growth. Our morning seder not only allows for fantastic gemara, halacha, and hashkafah shiurim, but, based on the Igerres haRamban’s prescription for ultimate torah learning, ״וכאשר תקום מן הספר – תחפש באשר למדת אם יש בו דבר אשר תוכל לקימו״, focuses on always finding the relevancy of that day’s learning to our lives.
Our talmidim leave with the understanding that the opportunities for being mekadesh shem shamayim are always present, inside the koslei bais midrash and out; and they are prepared for both. As the Ramban continues in the Iggeres, which was a letter to his son instructing him on how to live a life of Kiddush haShem; ״בכל דבריך ומעשיך ומחשבותיך, ובכל עת – חשוב בלבך כאלו אתה עומד לפני הקדוש ברוך הוא ושכינתו עליך, כי כבודו מלא העולם.״
I came from Israel and the Rebbeim here inspired me and gave me the opportunity I needed to succeed in my studies and my personal life. Today I have a good job, a good chavrusa, and now b"h a beautiful family of my own.
I'm from Queens and went to Yeshivas in Los Angeles, Miami and Israel before learning about The Yeshiva through an ad. It was better than I expected and there are no words to describe my hakaras hatov. I’ve grown so much. And you can quote me on that.
I'm originally from Brooklyn and went to Chaim Berlin, and Torah Temima before my father’s friend told him about the Yeshiva at IDT. Baruch haShem, this was the best Yeshiva situation I could have ever hoped for.
Our son, Nochum loved the professionalism of the yeshiva, its well-structured day, the Rebbeim and the way they teach, the guest speakers, the people in the IDT building – everything. The yeshiva opened him up socially and gave his life a direction. He’s happy. We’re happy.
After many years in the Bobov Yeshiva, in Boro Park, I came here and was immediately immersed in the superb learning offered to me by the Rabbeim who I found were not only great teachers but open-minded enough to be able to talk to about anything. I was also able to advance my computer skills, as well, and as a result of the work I did in my courses, landed a good position as a systems administrator.
A terrific place for me to start learning Torah by choice and not just for tests like in high school. The guys were a lot more mature and enthusiastic about studying. I took my computer networking and Microsoft courses seriously – so seriously, in fact, that I got an interview with the Network Operations Center and landed my first job as the lead engineer.
I grew up in Crown Heights and studied in Oholei Torah from preschool through Mesivta and Yeshiva Gedolah. From there I went to The Yeshiva at IDT to study computer networking. The Rabbeim’s classes were interesting - they didn’t put me to sleep. They helped give me perspective on life with classes on marriage and other relevant subjects. They were always willing to help, be it preparing for a test or just straight up advice. Another thing that was cool is that there was an interesting mix of people, yet everybody was close. And I’m still in contact with many of the friends I made there.
