The yeshiva, located at 824 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, New York 11213, was founded in 1962 by Rabbi Yisroel Jacobson, a Chabad activist, to accommodate baalei teshuva interested in full-time study in a traditional yeshiva environment. It has been located in the Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic community in the multi-ethnic neighborhood of Crown Heights in Brooklyn, New York since inception. The yeshiva was first located within the Chabad world headquarters building at 770 Eastern Parkway before moving to its present location at 824 Eastern Parkway following growing enrolment.
The yeshiva is a branch of the National Committee for the Furtherance of Jewish Education (NCFJE). Rabbi Jacob J. Hecht, executive vice president and national director of the NCFJE, played a pivotal role in the yeshiva's development and was its dean. After his death the yeshiva was renamed as Yeshivas Kol Yaakov Yehudah - Hadar Hatorah Rabbinical Seminary in recognition of his efforts.
The school accommodates students of all backgrounds, and with affiliation to all Jewish movements.
