From Yeshiva University

As the premier institution of higher education for the next generation of Jewish leaders, Yeshiva University educates men and women to be prepared for today's modern society. Through an understanding of Jewish values by way of our historic and timeless texts and history, our students receive the highest levels of education in an environment where they can feel safe and valued. From world class Torah scholars, to faculty who are leaders in their disciplines, to rebbeim who are religious scholars and authorities, there is no place like YU.

Along with over a dozen NCAA athletics teams, 150+ student run clubs and organizations, as well as many opportunities for learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom and batei midrash, YU is a campus unlike any other in the world. With New York City as our landscape, students are able to take advantage of our four locations throughout Manhattan.

Come see why YU is truly on the rise!
