Machon Yaakov is helping young people develop the strength, knowledge, confidence, and sense of responsibility to help build the Jewish world.

24hrs. Quadruple Match. $500k.

We’re Growing Through Covid.

With the recent passing of our dear, beloved Rabbi Rosenblum zt'l, we would like to dedicate this campaign and all of its donations (unless otherwise specified) l’iluy nishmas Mattisyahu Yared Ben Feivel Israel zt’l.

Machon Yaakov was founded in 2005 by Rabbi Beryl Gershenfeld (Rosh Yeshiva) and Rabbi Avraham Yitzchok Jacobs (Director). Over the past 16 years, Machon Yaakov has welcomed more than 260 students from a broad range of academic and professional backgrounds for its full-time 1- and 2-year learning programs. In any given year, Machon Yaakov serves 30 total students between the 1st and 2nd-year classes (with an incoming class of about 20).

Our typical student possesses a strong character, a passion for growth, an intellectual curiosity, and a natural sense of leadership.

Although mostly from the United States, Machon Yaakov students hail from a wide-range of countries, including Costa Rica, Venezuela, Russia, England, Germany, Australia, Canada, South Africa, and France, .

Though all texts are studied in the original Hebrew and Aramaic languages, many of our students arrive with little or no background in Hebrew. A Hebrew language program is provided to bolster vocabulary and grammar. Most students make tremendous progress in reading skills within a matter of months, if not weeks, as the program is highly intensive and motivating.

The average student age is about 24, ranging from 20-30.

Machon Yaakov students represent such universities as Harvard University, University of Pennsylvania, University of Chicago, Cornell University, University of Michigan, Northwestern University, Cambridge, and the London School of Economics, as well as many others.

Beyond geographic diversity, our students hold a wide-range of interests as well, including backgrounds in business, finance, consulting, medicine, the arts (with several accomplished musicians and actors), and professional sports. While some students arrive at Machon Yaakov with professional experience, others come just after university or graduate school.

Each student is encouraged to express the uniqueness he was given, with no absolute right or wrong path to growth. The vast majority of our students naturally establish themselves as businessmen, doctors, lawyers and academics, while a small percentage may find their calling as rabbis and teachers.

Tell your story. Why did you donate to Machon Yaakov?
