Mission Statement

Since 1927, the Yeshivah of Flatbush has stood at the forefront of American Jewish education and has set the standard of excellence emulated by other academic institutions. It has imbued its students with a thirst for knowledge, a commitment toTorah and Zionism, a love of the Hebrew language and the dedication to serve the greater Jewish and secular communities. The school philosophy is a synthesis of Judaic studies, liberal arts and extracurricular activities that places great emphasis on the students' character development. It has evolved into a unique complement of Jewish and American values that focuses on all aspects of education and enables our graduates to meet the challenges of college and life. In the years to come, we look forward to continuing the traditions of excellence, innovation and leadership that have made us a world-renowned institution.

A Yeshivah of Flatbush education is the first essential step in a lifelong pursuit of knowledge, achievement, leadership and success. For 85 years, the Yeshivah has led the way to significant advances in Jewish education. From learning Ivrit b’Ivrit, to integrating Hessed into the curriculum, launching a post-high school year in Israel and introducing interdisciplinary and Advanced Placement courses, we are renowned for excellence and innovation. The school is a vibrant learning lab with a rich program of core curricular and extracurricular classes and activities focused on educating the complete child. Committed to a philosophy of Torah U’Maddah, the school has programs in all fields of study that enable students to build confidence while exploring and developing their interests, talents and passion for learning. Thousands of graduates are leaders in religion, the sciences, humanities, education, business, media, the arts, public service and academia.

Founded in 1927 by the visionary Dr. Joel Braverman, A”H, the Yeshivah was carried into the modern era by Rabbi Dr. David Eliach. We continue to pioneer the principles of modern Jewish education under the strong leadership of Rabbi Dr. Raymond Harari in the Joel Braverman High School and Rabbi Yahel Tsaidi in the Elementary School. With our mandate of excellence in education, we look forward to sustaining an enduring impact on Jewish education for future generations.
