Rav Yisroel Mayer Kagan ZT"L (The Chofetz Chaim) founded the Yeshiva in 1864.
Until his passing in 1933, the Chofetz Chaim was recognized worldwide as the leader of Klall Yisroel (World Jewry).
He spread his message of Torah teachings through the publishing of his twenty-one books on the laws of daily living, charity, kindness, and careful speech (Refraining from Loshon Horah (gossip) etc.).
The Chofetz Chaim chose his son-in-law Rav Mendel Zaks Zt"l as Rosh HaYeshiva in Radin.
Upon Arriving to the US during WWII, Rav Zaks, known as Radiner Rosh Hayeshiva gathered his surviving talmidim and restarted the Yeshiva and Kollel Kodshim in New York with his son Rav Gershon Zaks the Rosh Hayeshiva Zt"l.

It is now over seventy years since the Yeshiva has been driven out from Radin and Chofetz Chaim continues on the path set out by its founding father as a bright, guiding beacon of light in these dark, confusing and turbulent times.
In addition to our primary mission to deliver unparalleled quality in Torah education, the Yeshiva is a center of kindness, charity and assistance to many in need.

The Yeshiva has established a network for extensive communal assistance
reaching hundreds of families and individuals in their time of difficulty.
It is the Yeshvas goal and mission to continue of the path of our predecessors
perpetuating the growth of the Radiner Yeshiva as one of the preeminent Torah institutions in the world.
