The Rosenbaum Yeshiva of North Jersey (formerly the Yeshiva of Hudson County) was instituted in 1979 in Bergen County and has established a reputation for excellence in both Jewish and general education. By September 2013, the enrollment has grown to over 1040 students. In January of 2005 the Yeshiva was renamed the Rosenbaum Yeshiva of North Jersey.
RYNJ graduates, which include many of the valedictorians and salutatorians of the area high schools, are young men and women who have succeeded academically while being committed to Torah learning, the careful performance of mitzvot, and spiritual growth.
Proud of its accomplishments, the Yeshiva reflects a bold and exciting vision of a genuine Torah environment that fosters the true awakening of young minds. This vision embodies ideals which the Yeshiva is proud to clearly articulate as it seeks outstanding achievements in Torah and general studies.
RYNJ Mission Statement
The Rosenbaum Yeshiva of North Jersey is an Orthodox Jewish school dedicated to continuing the chain of Jewish heritage by nurturing the joy and pursuit of a Torah way of life, in an environment that promotes Torah scholarship and academic excellence. Our mission is to inspire our children intellectually, socially, and morally to view themselves as essential links and vital assets of our precious legacy from Sinai.
As an Orthodox Jewish Institution We Believe
- Each child should be imbued with a sense of yirat shamayim (awe of G-d) and be inspired to make a commitment to careful observance of the Torah given to us at Sinai.
- All practices of the school are to be consistent with halacha and in consultation with gedolai Torah.
- Separate classes are to be provided for boys and girls in grades 1-8.
- An appreciation and respect for the Torah leaders of past and present generations should be instilled in each student.
- Each child should value the accomplishments and sacrifices of previous generations.
- Judaic Studies are to be taught in the morning by teachers who serve as role models for a Torah way of life.
- Each student should be inspired to make a commitment to life-long daily Torah learning and be provided with the Hebrew language and thinking skills required for such endeavors.
- Each child should develop a spiritual bond with Eretz Yisrael and a sense of identification with the State of Israel.
As a School Dedicated to Torah Scholarship & Academic Accomplishment for All Students We Believe
- Children flourish in a child-centered atmosphere that praises each child's accomplishments and values the talents, uniqueness, and varied learning styles of each student.
- All children can learn when they are provided with instructional support to develop their individual talents and address specific needs.
- Educational success involves the integration of cognitive, emotional and social growth and includes the nurturing of creativity.
- Each student should make a commitment to create quality work and strive for excellence. Accordingly, the school should be a model for the students by being committed to continuous self-improvement.
- A healthy professional relationship with open lines of communication between the family and the school plays a central role in the successful education of our children.
- Students should develop their critical thinking skills so that they not only learn to gather and incorporate information, but also to analyze what they learn and apply their knowledge.
- Each child should be inspired to a lifetime love of the pursuit of knowledge.
- The development of fine character and self-esteem is an essential process requiring constant effort and patience, facilitated by the faculty in a caring, safe environment and internalized by the students.
- Students should take responsibility for their actions and develop into good citizens. They should be imbued with an attitude of respect toward one's fellow man (k'vod habriot) and practice acts of kindness (chesed).
- The school should be deeply committed to focusing its energies (e.g. curriculum development, instructional strategies, assessment practices, professional development, leadership) in support of student achievement of essential knowledge, skills for learning and character refinement.
