The Yeshiva of Far Rockaway was founded in 1969 with only a handful of students. Over the years, the Yeshiva has experienced tremendous growth and has gained recognition as a significant Mokom Torah, sustaining the Far Rockaway/Five Towns communities and beyond. Bochurim travel to the Yeshiva from all parts of New York City.

Hundreds of our alumni have settled in the Far Rockaway/Five Towns area and are raising their families around the Yeshiva. Some are serving with distinction as Rabbanim and Mechanchim in local yeshivas, while others are professionals who continue to have a positive impact on the community. The same can be said of alumni who have made their home elsewhere, similarly influencing communities such as Baltimore, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Minneapolis, as well as Eretz Yisroel.
