Beth Medrash Elyon is a four-year, not-for-profit yeshiva in Monsey, New York.[1] It was considered one of the elite yeshivas during the 1950s and 1960s. It closed in the 1970s due to disagreements among the leaders of the yeshiva. Its past Roshei Yeshiva have included Rabbis Reuven Grozovsky, and Gedalia Schorr. Among its graduates are Rabbis Yisroel Belsky, Rav Yakov Moshe Kulefsky, J.D. Bleich, Yosef Goldman, Nosson Scherman, Moshe Leib Rabinovich (current Munkatcher Rebbe), Lipa Margolis, and Professor Aaron Twerski. The two brothers, Rabbis Dovid Schustal and Shlomo Feivel Schustal studied there as well. Their father Rabbi Simcha Schustal was the Rosh kollel.

The yeshiva was subsequently reopened. It was headed by R' Don Ungarischer, who was the son-in-law of R' Reuven Grozovsky. Rav Ungarischer died on October 30, 2011. His son-in-law, R' Yisroel Mordechai Falk, currently serves as Rosh Yeshiva.
