Yeshiva Elementary School

  • Yeshiva Elementary School was founded in 1987 by local rabbis and teachers who sensed a growing demand for a high quality, nurturing, Torah based day school education in South Florida.
  • From what originally had been a school of five children housed in a single classroom, Y.E.S has grown into a home for over 350 students.
  • By 1999 the school had clearly outgrown its original location on Alton Road, and moved to its current 50,000 square feet facility at 7902 Carlyle Avenue in Miami Beach.
  • The building had previously been home to Temple Ner Tamid, a large Conservative congregation.
  • As the synagogue's membership moved away, the edifice was largely unused.
  • With beautiful stained glass windows and fine craftsmanship, the building begged for another breath of Jewish life.
  • The Ner Tamid board members were committed to see the building used for Jewish purposes, and a wonderful match was made as Yeshiva Elementary School had found it's much needed new home.
  • Serving families from Miami to Boca Raton, this has proven to be an excellent location.
  • In recent years, many new arrivals from Latin America have moved within a few miles of the school, and this has contributed greatly to an increase in enrollment.
  • Y.E.S offers a rigorous dual curriculum within a caring environment, supportive of the development of an enduring Jewish identity.
  • In recent years, 100% of Y.E.S graduates have opted to continue their Jewish education in middle and high school.
