At the Forefront of Torah & Secular Education

Established in 1953, YRITEA has grown to be the largest Orthodox elementary Day School outside the New York Metropolitan area currently teaching over 1,000 boys and girls. Offering an extensive Hebrew studies program and fully accredited general studies program, YRITEA is at the forefront of providing quality and superior education to our students with many of our graduates achieving successes in both the worlds of Limud HaTorah and business.

But more than an education, YRITEA teaches a “Derech Hachayim,” a way of life which has inspired generations of Bnei Torah who are committed to the ideals and morals learned at YRITEA and cultivated by our dedicated Rabbeim, Moros, and teachers.

Years of Excellence
Amazing School

Rabbi Yechiel Yehuda Isacsohn

Built on a Legacy of Excellence

When Rabbi Yechiel Yehuda Isacsohn, a Holocaust survivor and immigrant, needed to move to Los Angeles for health reasons in 1955, he did so with a heavy heart due to the lack of a Torah day school which upheld the standards of Torah, middos, and ethics he wanted for his own daughter.  Rav Isacsohn, who was fondly known as the “Immigrant Rabbi”, thus began his mission to bring a school that could parallel those of the East Coast and which would personify those yeshivas lost in the alter heim.

Through many obstacles including lack of funding, a damaging fire, being displaced several times and Rav Isachsohn’s own failing health, the Yeshiva grew to what it is today, a beautiful campus with five separate buildings which house the Yeshiva’s five divisions ranging from Early Childhood through Junior High school.

Today, the Yeshiva continues the legacy of Rav Isacsohn in providing Los Angeles youth, with not just a quality education but a foundation built on Yiddishkeit, Torah and middos.

“Teaching is not about numbers and facts, it’s about reaching the hearts and minds of our students, impacting and building the next generations, and passing on the torch of our mesorah.”
