Yeshivas Tiferes Yaakov, Gateshead - a well-established jewel in the crown of Europe’s Torah mosdos, and a trailblazer as the first Yeshiva Ketana of its type in the UK, a model which has since become the standard for high-level post-school learning in the orthodox community.
Established in 1977 to help bridge the gap for the school boy embarking upon his journey through the Yeshiva world, a phenomenon not yet known of on our shores, but taken for granted today, it has successfully nurtured two generations of בני תורה by providing a setting infused with אהבת וחשקת התורה and direction by distinguished מחנכים. With an ever-growing faculty of selfless and devoted רבנים, every תלמיד is sure to be provided with all he needs to develop his potential to its maximum. Our 'שיעור א itself boasts five מגידי שיעור for themselves! The very high Rebbe-Talmid ratio within a relatively large and vibrant crowd ensures the optimum: an electrifying environment with individual attention.
Our thousands of alumni, from around the world, attest till today of the life-long benefits of having learnt in ישיבת תפארת יעקב and the very close connection they still feel to it and its רבנים till today.
