Yeshivas Ner Yisroel of Toronto (Ner Israel Yeshiva College) is a Harediyeshiva that was founded in 1959 as a branch of Yeshivas Ner Yisroel in Baltimore (NIRC). It is no longer affiliated with Ner Yisroel in Baltimore. The yeshiva includes both a Beis Midrash program and a high school.
The yeshiva was established by Rabbi Sholom Gold in 1959. Also instrumental to the founding of the yeshiva was Rabbi Moshe Hochman, who still is affiliated with the yeshiva, though no longer teaches there. He ran the Yeshiva-College program in the yeshiva back when it had one. In 1964 Rabbi Yaakov Weinberg came from NIRC and assumed the post of Rosh Yeshiva until 1971. The yeshiva was next headed by Rabbi Naftali Friedler. The mantle of Rosh Yeshiva was then assumed by Rabbi Gavriel Ginsburg.
The yeshiva has been granted restricted degree-granting authority by the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, to grant degrees in the field of religious studies and research in higher Jewish learning at the Bachelors, and Masters levels. In addition, the College offers University Diplomas and Certificates.
