Yeshiva Gedola is the center of the Torah Community in the Five Towns.
Founded in 2003 by Rav Yitzchok Knobel, shlita, and Rav Moshe Zev Katzenstein, shlita under the guidance of Rav Binyamin Kamenetzky, zt”l, the yeshiva has stayed true to its mission – to provide a home for bnei Torah to blossom into talmidei chachomim – and continue to flourish as they become outstanding members of their communities, and Klal Yisroel.
From early morning until late at night, the sounds of Torah reverberate throughout the building. Talmidim develop a lifelong kesher with the Rosh Yeshiva, Rav Moshe Katzenstein. As per the derech of his rebbe, Rav Shlomo Wolbe zt”l, Rav Katzenstein builds each talmid in the path of Torah, mussar, and gadlus ha’adam, and caters that unique path of growth for each individual.

Talmidim at YGFT become part of one big family.
They are toiling in Torah – spending hours reviewing the shiurim of Rav Yaakov Goodman, shlita, and Rav Meir Yehuda Kotowitz, shlita. They can be seen spending time discussing various topics of Torah in the beis medrash with Rav Moshe Miller, shlita, working through a sugya inside with Rav Yissocher Dov Loewi, shlita, or discussing their future growth with the Rosh Yeshiva. A YGFT talmid knows that he has an important place in his yeshiva, and in the future of Klal Yisroel.
“The Rabbeim at YGFT not only focus on bringing out each talmid’s potential in learning, but also in nurturing each talmid’s unique strengths, enabling him to grow into a wholesome Jew, and impact the world around him.”
“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.”
YGFT is not only a yeshiva for the Bnei Yeshiva. It is a Torah Center for the entire community. Many local baalei battim enjoy weekly Gemara, Halacha and Parsha shiurim delivered by the kollel avreichim of YGFT, and many more make YGFT their makom tefillah every Shabbos morning. In addition, the beis hamedrash is always
reverberating with the sounds of chavrusos learning with the bochurim, kollel avreichim, and baalei baatim. From weeknight shiurim, to avos ubanim programs, to shiurim and divrei chizuk, in addition to an open beis hamedrash, YGFT serves an important role in the Five Towns and beyond.
