Yeshiva Of North Jersey

  • The Yeshiva of North Jersey (formerly the Yeshiva of Hudson County) was instituted in 1979 in Bergen County and has established a reputation for excellence in both Jewish and general education.
  • Charged with the sacred responsibility of fostering the intellectual, spiritual, and social growth of Jewish children in the suburban communities of northern New Jersey, YNJ presents a vibrant learning atmosphere that is founded upon timeless Torah values and knowledge.
  • That atmosphere provides the Yeshiva's students with clear and consistent messages of ethical conduct, modesty, selflessness and service of the Divine Will - messages which are often ignored, even belittled, in contemporary society.
  • To create this Torah environment, the Yeshiva is firmly committed to those educational concepts that have served as the cornerstones of all great traditional institutions of Jewish learning.
  • Within a traditional structure, the academic program emphasizes individual needs and growth.
