Copyright Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim
In the late 1950s the Yeshiva moved out from New York City to Suffern
NY, bringing all the advanced students to a fifteen acre campus in the
quiet and serene surroundings of upstate New York. The site had
housing facilities that were outdated, and in the 1960s a new building
was erected. As the local community grew in the surrounding Monsey
area, the Yeshiva expanded our projects and services to
accommodate the growth.
The Yeshiva serves students of all ages and has one of the most
highly respected Rabbinical Kollel programs in the world. It has an
extensive library of rare sefarim and manuscripts in addition to
priceless letters, sefarim and artifacts from the Chofetz Chaim. We
are in need for additional space and we have started a major
expansion of our facilities.
The main campus Chofetz Chaim project has begun with the successful removal of the
mid 1800s house of the Chofetz Chaim from the town of Radin in Belarus. The home is
now in storage at its new site on the Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim campus in Suffern, New York.
It is our goal that this unique blend of historical importance, religious significance and
educational possibilities that would be made available by utilizing this structure as a Torah
educational center, museum and Radin memorial, will help educate our young, and the
lessons of our past will help us better ourselves in the future.
It is our "Tfilloh" that we be successful in instilling in our generation the lessons of the
Chofetz Chaim and that they in turn pass on what they have internalized to their future
generations; the importance of living a Torah life, with ethical behavior, modesty, humility,
kindness, friendship, charity, warmth, understanding and careful speech.
