Mesivtha Tifereth Jerusalem

Mesivtha Tifereth Jerusalem (Hebrew: מתיבתא תפארת ירושלים‎, Mesivta Tiferet Yerushalayim) is a yeshiva in New York City. It is one of the oldest existent yeshivot in the city and is renowned for being the institution formerly led by Rabbi Moshe Feinstein.[1] and currently by Rabbi Dovid Feinstein.



The yeshiva has two campuses. The older campus offers a full range of classes, from pre-kindergarten through post-high school. The dean, Rabbi Dovid Feinstein, is Rabbi Moshe Feinstein's eldest son. This campus has no dormitory. The second campus, also known as the Yeshiva of Staten Island, is led by Rabbi Reuven Feinstein, Rabbi Moshe Feinstein's younger son. The campus contains a high school, college, and post-college facilities.


Founded in 1907 at 87 Eldridge Street, the Talmud Torah Tifereth Jerusalem grew quickly. First moving to 115 Hester Street, then 240 Madison, then 13 Montgomery Street, the yeshiva finally settled in two adjacent lots on 145 and 147 East Broadway. The current structure was built in 1912. A high school was established in 1929.[citation needed]
