An unmatched Jewish environment, located in the heart of New York City

Welcome to the Canadian Friends of Yeshiva University website.

Yeshiva University stands at the educational, intellectual and spiritual epicenter of a robust movement, rooted in Jewish thought and tradition, dedicated to promoting the moral and material betterment of both the Jewish community and the broader world. Our aim is to ensure that all who set foot in Yeshiva University – student, staff, faculty, alumni or friend – are transformed by the experience and inspired to create a brighter tomorrow. The Jewish community of Canada is fundamental to ensuring that we actualize our sacred mission. We are deeply grateful for its support.

We invite you to learn more about our university, hear from our rabbis, distinguished professors and accomplished alumni, and join us in fulfilling our grand purpose.

Warm regards,
