[VIDEO] Established in 1987, the Rabbi Naftali Riff Yeshiva is an all boys boarding yeshiva high school program known for its extensive rigorous Torah and general studies programs. The aim of The Rabbi Naftali Riff Yeshiva is to achieve academic excellence in the education of young Jewish men, implant the sacred values of our faith in their hearts and cultivate within them a true sense of responsibility to the Jewish people. In 2008, the yeshiva formerly known as the South Bend Yeshiva, officially moved from South Bend to Indianapolis, Indiana.
In 1987, The Rabbi Naftali Riff Yeshiva in South Bend became the first Rabbinical College ever in the state of Indiana. The founder of the Yeshiva is Rabbi Yisrael Gettinger. The post-high school Rabbinical Studies program began in August 1988 (Elul 5748) with a group of 13 graduates of Yeshiva High Schools from nine cities and three countries. In August of 1989 (Elul 5749), the Yeshiva opened its high school division with a freshman class of 19 students. Together with the already existing Beis Medrash division, the Yeshiva, in 1994, had over 80 students from four countries, 15 states and 22 cities, and has established a reputation for its Torah education.

In 2008, the yeshiva formerly known as the South Bend Yeshiva, officially moved from South Bend to Indianapolis, Indiana. Tuition schedule is modest and more than offsets any travel expenses for out-of-town bochurim.
Students are involved in a rigorous learning program that includes Talmud, Mishna, Chumash, Neviim, Halacha, Talmud Bikius, Parsha, Ethics, Jewish History, and more, preparing them for their next steps in life.
The General Studies program within the yeshiva includes Mathematics (Algebra I and II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus), Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology), History (World History, American History), English (English I, II, III and IV), Foreign Language (Spanish I and II), and numerous other academic disciplines including Political Science, American Government, Economics, Computer Science, Public Speaking, Health, Physical Education, and Music Appreciation. This academic offering meets the CORE 40 recommendations and the Diploma requirements for the State of Indiana. Students go to The Rabbi Naftali Riff Yeshiva fully aware of the serious academic challenges required and, in the vast majority of cases, the students have selected this yeshiva because of the rigorous curriculum.
Interviews will be conducted in Lakewood today.
