Elkins Park’s Yeshiva Gedolah receives final approvals to open for 2022-’23 school year

The revamped Yeshiva Gedolah in Elkins Park received the necessary approvals from Cheltenham Township to open for the 2022-’23 school year. The approvals took place over the holiday weekend, and come on the heels of a 6-0 board vote in August which granted a thumbs-up to the yeshiva’s sewage facilities planning module.

The former Congregation Kol Ami property at 8201 High School Road is a 7.5-acre, 40,000-square-foot property which will house 108 students and 12 staff members. Students will live in the yeshiva’s second-floor dormitory on the same site as the school building.

Rabbi Yehoshua Rubanowitz chose Elkins Park because he believed it could offer fertile ground for his students and their post-yeshiva pursuits.
