Zvi Dov Roth Academy of Yeshiva Rambam High School

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.
