MARKING 70 YEARS SINCE THE REBIRTH OF TELSHE IN AMERICA



Founded in Lithuania in 1875 by Rabbi Eliezer Gordon zt”l, one of the greatest Torah scholars of that generation, Telshe Yeshiva flourished in Europe for some 65 years. But during the Holocaust, on October 28, 1941, the yeshiva was reestablished in a residential building in Cleveland, Ohio, under the guidance and leadership of Rabbi Eliyahu Meir Bloch z.s,l. and Rabbi Chaim Mordechai Katz z.s.l. Very few observers believed that a yeshiva could succeed in Cleveland, but the Headmasters of Telshe were driven by a sense of mission and of the vital role they played in the Almighty’s plan to transplant Torah scholarship and values from Europe to America. This month, Telshe Yeshiva – one of the first European yeshivas transplanted to American soil – will hold a special dinner marking its 70thyear in the United States.

The Rabbinical College of Telshe, also known as Telshe Yeshiva, currently consists of a high school, college and post-graduate school, and has educated thousands of students since its inception in Europe more than 130 years ago. The yeshiva is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that is accredited through the Association of Advanced Rabbinical and Talmudic Schools (AARTS), which is recognized by the United States Department of Education. Its mission is to provide a Torah education to Jewish youth while instilling in them the values of scholarship, integrity and human dignity. Great emphasis is placed on the responsibility to give of oneself, both physically and financially, to the community, wherever he chooses to settle. The yeshiva boasts thousands of alumni, many in Rabbinical, teaching, and community leadership positions around the globe and in cities throughout the United States.
