WEST NEW YORK AND BEYOND -- According to a Jewish website, a new Yeshiva -- an academy for the advanced study of Jewish texts -- will be opening in West New York for the upcoming school year.
The announcement was made on Monday but does not state where exactly in West New York the academy will be located. It said that it will be situated in a "spacious building that boasts many Shiur rooms, a dormitory, and a nice size Zal." It is expected that the academy will be able to house hundreds of students at full capacity.

Although West New York is known for its high Cuban population, it also has a small Jewish population, and contains both a nearly 100-year-old Orthodox synagogue and a school for Jewish children.
