Yeshivas Ner Yisroel (Ner Israel Rabbinical College) (also known as NIRC) is a yeshiva in Baltimore, Maryland founded in 1933 by Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchok Ruderman a brilliant Talmudist and one of the primary disciples of Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel, dean of the famous Slabodka yeshiva in Lithuania, and is now led by Rabbi Aharon Feldman, one of the foremost disciples of Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchak Ruderman. The yeshiva was named for Rabbi Yisrael Lipkin Salanter, the founder of the mussar movement and teacher of Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel. The yeshiva is an all-male Lithuanian (Litvish)-style Haredi Talmudic college, politically affiliated with Agudath Israel ,and ranks from the larger schools of its type. It presently consists of a high school numbering over 250 students, an undergraduate Beis Medrash program numbering about 400 students, and a kollel post-graduate rabbinical division numbering about 180 students. The yeshiva is on a self-contained scenic campus located at Mt. Wilson Lane, Pikesville, Maryland, just Northwest of the Baltimore city limits. Ner Yisroel consists of two central study halls, one for the high school and one much larger for the beis medrash and the kollel (also doubling as the main prayer sanctuaries), lecture halls, classrooms, libraries, dormitories, a dining hall and much outdoor recreational space. Also on campus is housing for its faculty and their families in a close-knit community setting, called "Yeshiva Lane". It is said to be the largest Yeshiva campuses in the world. Apart from its renowned Talmudic studies program, Ner Yisroel is also recognized as an accredited college by the state of Maryland, and has agreements with Johns Hopkins University, Towson University, Community College of Baltimore County, Loyola College in Maryland, University of Baltimore, and University of Maryland, Baltimore County whereby after a six month period of exclusively religious study, the under-graduate students (excluding freshmen) can, on a limited bi-weekly and summer basis, take night courses at these colleges and universities in a variety of academic fields, and in turn gain academic credits for their religious studies. This is a feature which appeals to many Orthodox young men who seek to have the basis for becoming future professionals, without compromising the intensity and integrity of the yeshiva experience. Students who choose to pursue a professional career often enter fields such as medicine, dentistry, finance, law, and accounting after graduating from NIRC.
