A branch of the Telshe Yeshiva, the Yeshiva of Telshe Alumni is located in Riverdale, a neighborhood of the Bronx in New York City. It was founded in the early 1980s by Rabbi Avraham Ausband, a grandson of Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak Bloch, the Telzer Rav; by Rabbi Yaakov Reisman, a son-in-law of Telzer Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Mordechai Gifter; and by a talmid (Heb: student) of Rabbi Mordechai Gifter, Rabbi Yosef Chaim Libersohn, who came from Argentina for this purpose. The Yeshiva, with an enrollment of approximately two hundred, is currently headed by Rabbi Ausband.
