Founded over a century ago in lower Manhattan and operating in Staten Island since 1976, the Rabbi Jacob Joseph School is an elementary school. The facility administers a boys’ campus, a girls’ campus, and a preschool campus, providing a Torah-based environment in which children can learn and grow. The school has accommodated a great number of rabbis and their families, including Rabbi Leib Tropper and his father, Rabbi Yehuda Tropper.
Students are educated in the Jewish orthodox faith and imparted with the ethical standards of the Torah. They are exposed to a modern curriculum, and the small class size enables the school to provide attention to each student’s personal abilities and requirements. Boys and girls are educated in separate yet equally prestigious environments, and the school is the only one of its kind on Staten Island to provide this distinction.
Since the school’s opening in 1900, thousands of alumni like Rabbi Leib Tropper have gone on to great career successes. For more information, visit www.ymht.org.
