What Parents and Mechanchim are Saying
"The boys are warm, caring, and inclusive. The Yeshiva is actively invested in both the Ruchniyus and Gashmiyus of each Talmid. It's a winning formula and I could not have asked for more!"
Mr. Ian Liebenthal, Current Parent, Toronto
"I personally know Rabbi Polatoff and I assure you that visiting the Yeshiva would be a great investment in your son’s future. If your son is interested in getting a glimpse of more high school options available to him, I encourage him to visit the Yeshiva of Rochester."
Rabbi Moshe Bender, Yeshiva Darchei Torah, Far Rockaway
"When I visited the Rochester Yeshiva, I was impressed by how the bochurim were learning and davening in a warm and friendly environment. Everyone seemed to be so happy there. That was the feeling that I got after eating breakfast with the boys, sitting in a shiur, and speaking with different Hanhala members for a while. It was quite evident that in the Rochester Yeshiva there is a healthy balance between good learning and much needed outlets for the bochurim."
Rabbi M. Ullman, 8th Grade Rebbe, Yeshivas Tiferes Tzvi, Chicago
"We met with Rabbi Polatoff and his bochurim and we were very impressed. We sent our own talmidim to the Yeshiva who are Boruch Hashem doing beautifully!"
Rabbi Zoimen, Menahel, Yeshiva Yesodei Hatorah, Toronto
"Amazing things are going on at the Yeshiva of Rochester and we feel so lucky to be a part of it!"

"I sent two of my eighth graders to the Yeshiva of Rochester. What can I say, I'm ecstatic! The boys are very happy!"
Rabbi N. Adler, Menahel, Scranton Hebrew Day School
"I was very comfortable and confident leaving my son on the first day with a Yeshiva whose staff is so warm and caring, the Rebbeim and the boys reached out immediately. He is thrilled to be part of a yeshiva that puts an emphasis on mentchlichkeit, achdus, and respect."
Mrs. M. Braun, Current Parent, Montreal
"Yeshiva of Rochester is the hidden gem in a world of many yeshivos. With Rabbi Menachem Davidowitz, a world class Rosh HaYeshiva, at its helm since 1974, it comes as no surprise that the Yeshiva has seen so much hatzlacha over the years."
Rabbi Ben Tzion Shafier, Founder and Director of “The Shmuz”
