Building Bright Futures


Zvi Dov Roth Academy of Yeshiva Rambam provides a comprehensive curriculum of Religious and General Studies based on the highest standard of Torah Observant Judaism. The school's main goal is to give students the prerequisite knowledge and skills to become successful participants in society and to enthusiastically embrace our Torah and refinement of character. Toward this end, Zvi Dov Roth Academy strives to instill our community with the knowledge that every person is created in the image of Hashem, a lifelong passion for learning, and a desire to ultimately give back with their unique abilities to the Jewish people and the state of Israel.

Our History

Zvi Dov Roth Academy of Yeshiva Rambam (ZDR) was founded in 1997 with a class of 19 students and has grown into an outstanding spiritual and academic modern orthodox high school for students both Ashkenazi and Sephardic.

Alex Rovt, PhD who serves as President Emeritus of ZDR had been supporting the Yeshiva Rambam Elementary School for 19 years and felt that the community needed a modern yeshiva high school.


He, together with the Board of Governors, worked to open an affordable high school.  The school was named after Zvi Dov Roth A”H, grandfather of Alex Rovt. Even today, ZDR charges the lowest tuition of any high school yeshivot around, making it possible for students who seek a Jewish education to get one.

Zvi Dov Roth Academy offers an outstanding multi-level limudei kodesh and general studies curriculum designed to enhance the students’ interests and talents. ZDR is accredited by the State of New York and the majority of its students graduate with a regents or advanced regents diploma. 

Working closely with a small staff of experienced and dedicated educators, ZDR maintains a sincere commitment to Torah values as well as a dedication to secular studies.  A love of Israel is embedded in each student.
