Admissions Process

We are honored that you have chosen to grant us the privilege of partnering with you in educating your precious child, a trust that we take with the utmost humility and seriousness of purpose. These are the steps in the Yeshiva of Elizabeth’s admissions process:

1)Please call Mrs. Debbie Kadosh, Executive Office Manager, at 908.355.4850 x 6234, or e-mail her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., to set up a building tour, either before or concurrent to your child’s admissions interview (Step 3).

2) Please complete the application by clicking on the link on the front page of the website.  There is an Application fee of $125.

For transfer students, please also send us the two most recent years of report cards and standardized testing records, along with any other Individual Service Plans (ISP) or classification documents that may be relevant.

3)Please call Mrs. Debbie Kadosh, 908.355.4850 x6234, or e-mail her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., to set up your child’s admissions interview. For early childhood applications, the admissions interview consists of a brief meeting with Rabbi Uzi Beer, Principal, and a half-hour intake meeting with Mrs. Rivkah Isaacs, Early Childhood Coordinator, and Dr. Rebecca Mischel, Director of Guidance. Don’t worry, your child does not need to be apprehensive; you will accompany your child to the intake session. The intake consists of assessing the skill level of your child relative to age-appropriate benchmarks, and provides you the opportunity to ask in-depth questions about your child’s specific needs.

4)For transfer students entering Grades 1-6, the intake will be with Rabbi Beer, Dr. Goldie Grossman, Assistant Principal, and Mrs. Sora Leah Mirsky, Director of Student Services. Your child will have an informal personal interview with us, and then will take brief standardized assessments in Hebrew reading (keriyah), Chumash with Rashi (when grade-appropriate), reading, and mathematics. The process generally lasts 45-60 minutes in total.

5)At the time of your child’s interview, you will have the opportunity to speak to our Business Office to discuss any financial queries you may have.

6)After the personal interview, an admissions decision is usually forthcoming within a day or two (sometimes a bit longer for transfer students). You will be informed by mail of our decision. If your child is accepted, a registration card will accompany his or her acceptance letter, to be returned to school along with a non-refundable deposit check made out to the JEC.
