The Yeshiva Gedolah of Passaic, was established in 1973 by Rabbi Chaim Davis and Rabbi Gershon Weisenfeld zt'l, who joined as rosh kollel. When Rav Weisenfeld took ill right before the Yeshiva was to open, HaRav Meir Stern joined the administration.

The yeshiva opened its doors with 10 students in the yeshiva itself and 10 students in the kollel. As the yeshiva's reputation grew it expanded to nearly 100 students in the mid 1980s. HaRav Meir Stern's lectures gained a wide reputation among the American Jews and many came to Passaic to hear them.[1] At this point, 2008, the Yeshiva has over 150 students.
