The yeshiva, located at 824 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, New York 11213, was founded in 1962 by Rabbi Yisroel Jacobson, a Chabad activist, to accommodate baalei teshuva interested in full-time study in a traditional yeshiva environment. It is located in the Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic community in the multi-ethnic neighborhood of Crown Heights in Brooklyn, New York.
The yeshiva is a branch of the National Committee for the Furtherance of Jewish Education (NCFJE). Rabbi Jacob J. Hecht, executive vice president and national director of the NCFJE, played a pivotal role in the yeshiva's development and was its dean. After his death the yeshiva renamed Yeshivas Kol Yaakov Yehudah - Hadar Hatorah Rabbinical Seminary in recognition of his efforts.
The school accommodates students of all backgrounds, and with affiliation to all Jewish movements.
