Yeshiva Torah Vodaath Celebrates its 100th Anniversary

This year, Yeshiva Torah Vodaath celebrates the 100th anniversary of its founding.

The legendary founders, Reb Binyomin Wilhelm and Rav Shraga Feivel Mendlowitz established Torah Vodaath amid much opposition; it was felt that Yeshivos were appropriate for Lithuania and Poland, not New York. These great leaders persevered and successfully established Torah on these shores.

Torah Vodaath inspired the vision for every American Yeshiva that followed. A century later it is universally recognized that a true Torah education is the single most important factor in Jewish continuity. The 100-year milestone of Torah Vodaath is a celebration for Torah communities across America.

The Commemorative Centennial Book, “America’s Yeshiva” will encapsulate a century of Torah growth portraying the history, memoirs, and impact of Yeshiva Torah Vodaath.

You can be part of this historic project by sharing stories, pictures, videos, and personal memories for this Commemorative Book. Please contact Rabbi Yitzchok Diamond at or 718-941-8000 x240 or Rabbi Yitzchok Gottdiener at or 718-941-8000x210.
