  1. Why are there no comments when it comes to hachzokas hatorah? I encourage everybody to get out there and support this makom torah v’yirah! I personally know a number of alumni who are talmidei chachmim muflagim and marbitzei torah. What a precious asset to our people!

  2. Everyone out there, this is really a good yeshiva. Many people were made into real talmidi chachamim. and once a peekskill boy– always a peekskill boy. Reb Elya is there for everyone no matter what!! he’s the greatest man out there. THEY NEED YOUR SUPPORT.
    reb elya made me!! Thanks
