Jewish Educational Center

Elementary School

The Yeshiva of Elizabeth prides itself on its warm and nurturing environment. Our pediacentric approach to education is predicated on developing children’s self-esteem as the turn-key for success in learning.

From our Early Childhood morot to the teachers in our elementary grades, the Yeshiva of Elizabeth treats our students with love and respect their individuality. As JEC’s elementary division, the Yeshiva of Elizabeth promotes excellence in education filtered through the prism of a modern Torah worldview. Its comprehensive dual curriculum in limudei kodesh and general studies is supported by extensive remedial and supplementary enrichment programs to suit a variety of learning styles. The yeshiva proudly shows support for Medinat Yisrael through numerous activities throughout the year. Extracurricular opportunities for students are provided through PTA clubs, class trips, interactive assemblies, choir, and student plays and performances.

We invite the community to partner with us in raising the next generation of well-rounded B’nei and B’not Torah!

High School

The Rav Teitz Mesivta Academy, fondly known as RTMA, is the boys' high-school division of the Jewish Educational Center in Elizabeth, New Jersey.

Our modern Torah approach is grounded by an unwavering commitment to Torat, Medinat, and Am Yisrael. We embrace our mission of working with young men as they develop into well-rounded Jews, truly the lights of our community, and effective citizens of the world.

At RTMA, we recognize the individuality of each boy, capitalize on the unique set of strengths and talents each possesses, and provide support when and where it is needed. Our warm and positive environment nurtures growth-academically, spiritually, socially, and emotionally.

At Bruriah High School for girls, our paramount aim is to provide an education based on Torah principles and academic excellence as well as to inculcate Torah ethics and mores in our students. Our efforts are devoted to consistent religious growth and personal character development. Bruriah prepares students to meet both the spiritual and educational challenges of the world around us.

Bruriah is committed to providing a high caliber limudei kodesh curriculum as well as a full college preparatory general studies course of study to enable each student to face the challenges of the 21st century. The Bruriah graduate is a well-rounded, knowledgeable, religiously committed and communally involved young woman who is devoted and committed to Israel.
