It the eleven years since, the Yeshiva has grown into one of the elite Yeshiva High Schools in the Brooklyn Syrian Community.
In the past eleven years, the Yeshiva graduated eight classes and has watched their graduates become young pillars of the community.
There is a beautiful mix of students attending the Yeshiva as evident by their post graduate activities.
In the year after High School, approximately 30 percent of the graduates go to Israel to study, while the remainder attend College locally and enter the work force.
