Yeshiva Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch

85-93 Bennett Avenue

Yeshiva Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch (YRSRH, also known as Breuer's, after its creator) was founded in New York City in 1944, as a means of reestablishing the Orthodox Jewish community of Frankfurt, Germany in the United States. The school, founded by Rabbi Joseph Breuer, is run according to the philosophy of Rabbi Breuer's grandfather, Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch. It is located in the Upper Manhattan neighborhood of Washington Heights.

The institution has several divisions, including separate elementary, middle and high schools for boys and girls, and post high school Talmudic academy. It also maintained a teacher's seminary for many years, which was discontinued in 2004.

It is under the general auspices of Khal Adath Jeshurun, which is an Orthodox kehilla that serves the mostly German-Jewish community of Washington Heights and Fort Tryon in upper Manhattan.
