In 1926, Crown Heights Yeshiva began its mission to provide Jewish education at a time when yeshivot were few and far in between. By 1981, the Yeshiva, in an attempt to expand and serve the needs of its original purpose, moved to Mill Basin. The Yeshiva retained its former, prestigious name even as its home had moved. In Mill Basin, the demographic shifted to reflect the many immigrants who moved there.
The Yeshiva now serves a diverse population of over 320 students. We accommodate many cultural backgrounds and religious levels. We are in the midst of a strong upgrade of Staff, Curriculum and Facilities. To reflect this, we have renamed the yeshiva, Mill Basin Yeshiva Academy.
MBYA will launch this upcoming year riding on the strong success of an outstanding year of service and excellence.
Our programming will engage families and inspire a sense of community and belonging. The Yeshiva will serve as a hub of spiritual growth and family-based learning.
In 2017 we opened a high school for girls which will graduate it's first class in 2021.
Here at MBYA, we envision a time when families join together with the school as partners in education that work together as a community to impart the Torah values we hold dear. Together, we will build the future of a vibrant Jewish nation.
