The future of 

Detroit's Jewish 

community grows

here.

The oldest and largest Jewish educational institution in Michigan, Yeshiva Beth Yehudah is a launchpad for generations of Jewish leaders, thinkers, and scholars.


At the Yeshiva, we see the future in the eyes of every child who comes through our doors.

The Yeshiva is

more than a school.


It’s at the heart of the Metro Detroit Jewish community.

Serving 1,100+ children and 1,000+ adults each week in a rich array of community and educational programming,  Yeshiva Beth Yehudah is more than an educational institution: it’s a movement.

 

It’s where bright, curious minds of all ages and backgrounds come to warm their souls and grow in their love of Jewish learning. It’s where Detroit’s Jewish community joins together — in unity, growth, and love.

Our Values, 105 Years Strong

 

The beliefs we stand for & the ideals we live by

Every Child Welcome.

No Exceptions


We accept every student, regardless of their family’s economic situation. We believe finances should never be a barrier to exceptional education + opportunity.

The Best of Both Worlds:

Building Minds & Hearts


Our robust dual curriculum integrates Judaic and general studies, teaching children the values and skills to succeed not only in the workplace, but as people.

A Whole-Child Approach

to Education


Our wide range of extracurricular activities gives students non-academic opportunities to develop skills and build character.

Committed to Serving the

Needs of Every Child


We don’t do cookie-cutter education: over 40% of our students receive some form of special education, therapy, reading assistance, mentorship programs, gifted-student programs, and more.
