Yeshiva Yaakov Ovenu was founded in 1961 by Rabbi Leon [Eliezer] Friedlander, z"l. His burning desire was to serve Hashem by teaching and spreading Torah, to make Torah accessible to all regardless of their daily schedule and background. Rabbi Leon [Eliezer] Friedlander, z"l spent 13 years at Hebrew Theological College as a student and some more years as a teacher before founding this yeshiva in the Chicago area. He taught in various locations throughout the Jewish Community, and taught over a dozen classes a week, free of charge.
