Yeshivas

Buildings that house either Hebrew-English day schools providing both secular and religious instruction, usually operated under Orthodox Jewish auspices, or for schools providing training in Talmudic law and which may ordain rabbis. For educational facilities specifically devoted to the training of rabbis, use "rabbinical seminaries." For buildings that house day schools operated under Reform or Conservative Jewish auspices, use "Hebrew schools.".
