Yeshivah Centre, Sydney
|Part of a series on|
The Yeshiva Centre was established in 1956 by Rabbi Chaim Gutnick and Mr. Abraham Rabinovitch, along with a few others, as a synagogue and learning centre. The leaders from 1956 to 1968 were Rabbi G. Herc and Rabbi C. E. Barzel. In 1968 Rabbi Pinchus Feldman accepted leadership of the Yeshiva Centre.
The Yeshiva Centre runs various educational programs.
Yeshiva Gedola - Rabbinical College of Sydney
Rabbi Boruch Lesches served as its Rosh Yeshiva and Mashpia for almost twenty years. (He has since left Sydney, and is currently serving as the rabbi of the Chabad-Lubavitch shul in Monsey, which also contains a Yeshiva that is part of the Tomchei Temimim network.)
The Yeshiva Gedolah is administrated by Rabbi Yossi Feldman, son of Rabbi Pinchus Feldman.
After financial difficulty, in late 2003 the Feldman family ceded control over the school to philanthropist Meir Moss for A$1. The school later rebranded as Kesser Torah.
The Yeshiva opened a new School in 2007 called Cheder Chabad Lubavitch, later renamed Yeshiva College Bondi Ltd.
