More than an institution, Gateshead Yeshivah are proud of the alumni that have passed through its gates. With a far reaching sphere of influence and an iconic landmark in the Jewish world of learning – Gateshead Yeshivah prepares students for challenges ahead. This site is a testimony to the fact that the alumni want a port of call to keep the connection with the Yeshivah.

About the association

A dedicated committee


Gateshead Yeshivah Alumni Association (GYAA) was formed in the late 1960’s. A number of fundraising dinners were made in the 70’s and 80’s and 90’s but then the public side of the Alumni was dormant until the first dinner in July 2011.

Annual shiurim were arranged before Rosh Hashonoh each year – given originally by Rabbi Leib Lopian, then Rabbi Matisyohu Solomon (Mashgiach of Gateshead Yeshiva and currently Lakewood) and more recently by Rabbi Mordechai Yosef Karnowsky.
