Summary

The Rabbinical College of America is a large Chabad Lubavitch Chasidic Yeshiva. The Yeshiva is located in Morristown, New Jersey and has trained thousands of Rabbinic students. The Yeshiva is supported by Jewish philanthropists such as David T. Chase, and Ronald Lauder of Estée Lauder Inc. The Yeshiva was founded and is under the direction of Rabbi Moshe Herson. The growth of the Yeshiva college has had a significant cultural effect on the community and has influenced many Jewish families to move into the area to be near the Yeshiva and the surrounding synagogues.

Licensed by the New Jersey Commission on Higher Education, the Yeshiva grants a four year Bachelor's Degree in Religious Studies accredited by the Association of Advanced Rabbinical and Talmudic Schools.

The college is located on an 82-acre (330,000 m2) campus in Morris Township, New Jersey. The campus is the New Jersey Headquarters of the Chabad Lubavitch movement.
