Yeshiva University

New York City, New York, United States
Now in its second century, Yeshiva University is the oldest and most comprehensive educational institution under Jewish auspices in America. It is an independent university that ranks among the nation's leading academic research institutions and, reflecting the time-honored tradition of Torah Umadda, provides the highest quality Jewish and secular education of any Jewish university in the world. Since its inception the University has been dedicated to melding the ancient traditions of Jewish law and life with the heritage of Western civilization, and each year we celebrate as future leaders make YU their home.

About

Our students study at our four campuses: Wilf Campus (500 West 185th Street), Israel Henry Beren Campus (245 Lexington Avenue) and Brookdale Center (55 Fifth Avenue) in Manhattan, and the Jack and Pearl Resnick Campus in the Bronx (Eastchester Road and Morris Park Avenue). The undergraduate schools offer a unique dual curriculum comprising Jewish studies and liberal arts and sciences courses, and our graduate and affiliate schools offer tremendous opportunities for graduate and professional studies.

Some of the world's leading minds make their home in Yeshiva University's classrooms. Beyond a commitment to research and writing, YU faculty members and roshei yeshiva [professors of Talmud] engage and inspire their students, drawing them into a continuing pursuit of knowledge and wisdom. They value close interactions with their students and the opportunity to engage with students outside the classroom setting, whether it's meeting informally to continue a discussion started in the classroom or collaborating in the laboratory on new research.

YU alumni have gone on to become Nobel laureates, distinguished rabbinic leaders, world political leaders, business giants and philanthropists. Alumni have achieved immense success and made significant contributions to society and the Jewish community both nationally and worldwide. They serve, lead and inspire by example: a testament to the University's greatest resources—our students and faculty.
