New Yeshiva Building in Montreal Nears Completion


The 4500 square foot, newly constructed building of Yeshiva Tomchei Temimim Lubavitch, of Montreal, Canada, is preparing to open its doors in September. Constructed on the grounds of several old dormitory buildings that were demolished, the three-story yeshiva building will accommodate some 300 students, with a state-of the art beit midrash, classrooms, libraries, dining halls, an industrial kitchen and offices.

“Until now we were housed in the same building as the rest of the boys’ yeshiva,” explains the yeshiva’s dean, Rabbi Aryeh Leib Kaplan. “It was not an ideal situation and there was no space to accommodate the growing numbers of students applying to our program,” he says.

Established 62 years ago by the sixth Lubavitch Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, of sainted memory, Montreal’s Lubavitch Yeshiva has been the choice yeshiva for many foreign students. The three-year program offers yeshiva students ages 18-20 an outstanding curriculum, and now, a beautiful setting in which to pursue their Talmudic and Chasidic studies.

Dormitory facilities for the yeshiva students are located in the immediate vicinity. “We expect to continue building and growing,” says Rabbi Kaplan, pointing out that several new building projects related to the yeshiva are on the drawing board.
