Rabbi Yaakov Friedman is the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Birchas Mordechai in Beitar, Israel.
"[Yeshiva Toras Chaim] introduced me to Torah and to the Torah lifestyle. My experience in the Yeshiva changed my life. Birchas Mordechai is very much fashioned after the warmth and devotion and interpersonal connection that I saw with the Roshei Yeshiva in Yeshiva Toras Chaim. They gave us a love for Torah and a sense of devotion to a life of Torah and to the Jewish people. They introduced me to a whole other world and were definitely the inspiration for the life I have dedicated myself to."
