  Throughout its distinguished history, Yeshiva Beth Yehudah has been an anchor for the Detroit area Jewish community. Founded in 1914, it continues to build on its century long tradition of excellence. Stability and continuity have made the school a living testimony to tradition.
  Today the school’s curriculum offers a rich blend of religious and secular, Hebrew and English, traditional and professional education.
With two campuses in the metro Detroit area the School for Boys and Preschool in Southfield and the Beth Jacob School for Girls in Oak Park, Yeshiva Beth Yehudah is open to all children from Nursery through Grade 12, regardless of their ability to pay. About two-thirds of the Yeshiva student body receives some degree of tuition assistance.
Now, more than ever, the Yeshiva is the answer to the scourge of assimilation that plagues our modern society. It is little wonder that the school’s enrollment has risen
steadily each year.

A proud agency of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit, Yeshiva Beth Yehudah reaches out to students and families from all walks of the Jewish community.

The Jean and Theodore Weiss Partners in Torah Program of Yeshiva Beth Yehudah provides a highly acclaimed and successful adult education program, which joins together hundreds of people of all backgrounds to further their knowledge of their Jewish heritage. In addition, the Weingarden Torah Conferencing Center offers live satellite broadcasts of renowned Torah lectures from around the world.


One of the Yeshiva’s proudest achievements is the consistently outstanding performance of its students. The proportion of students who receive merit awards, scholarships and other honors is higher than in any public or parochial school in the area.

Even more unusual is the percentage of Yeshiva graduates who go on to higher education. From Rabbinical schools to public universities, nearly 100 percent of the students continue their education after graduation. It is no wonder that so many Yeshiva alumni are among the community’s most prominent and successful leaders.

  Most rewarding is the knowledge that the school’s alumni have taken leadership roles in institutions throughout the country. Others return as teachers; in fact, nearly one-third of the Yeshiva faculty are graduates of Yeshiva Beth Yehudah.

In addition, much of the school’s support comes from a sound core of alumni who have not forgotten the lessons they learned and the care invested in them. They, together with a broad community-wide base of friends, help guarantee the Yeshiva’s survival.

Ultimately, they realize that a gift to the Yeshiva is in
essence a gift to themselves. For, by investing in this institution — their institution — they are investing in the future of our community and in its survival.

By giving Jewish children the means to receive a Jewish education, we ensure the future of our children, our grandchildren, and the foundation of Judaism for all time.
