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 The site had housing facilities that were outdated, and in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 books and manuscripts in addition to
priceless books and artifacts from the Chofetz Chaim. We are in
desperate 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 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.
