For more than eighty years, Yeshivas Chofetz Chaim-Talmudical Academy of Baltimore has guided young men on the path of Torah. As the oldest yeshiva in the U.S. outside New York, TA has been the nurturing ground for scores of baal habatim and leaders of the Baltimore and worldwide Jewish community. Today, that tradition continues on a campus where a superb teaching staff and modern facilities have created a national reputation for excellence in both limudei kodesh and general studies and continues the vision and uncompromising dedication of its founders.
The Mesivtas limudei kodesh program prepares students to learn for a year or more at yeshivos in Eretz Yisroel, the United States, or Canada. Our state accredited general studies program prepares students for undergraduate education at the college and university level. We emphasize the principles of Torah and Halacha as they pertain to the general character of the student. Individual attention and a supportive environment build self esteem while preparing each student for leadership and responsibility in the community.
Our Mesivta program includes Gemara Biyun and Bekius along with Chumash, Halacha, Navi, Hashkafah and Hebrew Language and Jewish History. We also have a Night Seder Program and Mishmor on Thursday evenings. Our Rosh Yeshiva is Rabbi Yosef Rottenberg.
Our general studies program, covers the gamut of college preparatory courses in English, Math, Sciences, History, and Foreign Languages along with Advance Placement Courses and upper level courses that earn college credit. There is a Student G.O. which sponsors various activities throughout the year. We have a school newspaper, yearbook, basketball team and canteen.
Our facilities include a separate bais medrash for our high school students, computer lab, fully equipped gymnasium, outdoor sports facilities and a cafeteria. Our out-of-town students are provided with a dormitory on our ten-acre campus in suburban Pikesville, Maryland. The dormitory Mashgiach works with the resident dorm counselors to supervise, direct and assist students where needed. While a dormitory cannot duplicate the home environment, the Yeshiva strives to provide a comfortable and stimulating atmosphere for our students who live on campus. Members of our adjacent neighborhood frequently invite students for Shabbos meals. Nearby faculty housing assures greater opportunity for interaction between students and Rebbaim.
We encourage applications from motivated bochurim looking to develop into serious Bnei Torah.
