Ner Israel Rabbinical College, also referred to as NIRC or Yeshivas Ner Yisroel, was established in 1933. Founded by Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchok Ruderman, the institute was named in honor of Rabbi Yisrael Lipkin Salanter, founder of the mussar movement. This Lithuanian-style Haredi Talmudic college in Baltimore, Maryland offers enrollment to only male students.
Ner Israel Rabbinical College's programs focus on rabbinic literature and Talmud texts. These courses lead to a Bachelor of Talmudic Law, Master of Talmudic Law, or Doctorate in Talmudic Law degree. The college also has a Machon program through which students are trained to become religious Jewish educators.
The student body of NIRC has representatives from foreign countries like Israel, Australia, Belgium, South Africa, England, and Russia. Among the notable alumni of the college are Rabbi Yochanan Zweig, Rosh Yeshiva, Yeshiva Bais Moshe Chaim; Rabbi Dr. Chaim Milikovsky, Dean, Talmudic studies, Bar-Ilan University; Rabbi Pesach Lerner, President, National Council of Young Israel; and Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt, Chief Rabbi of Moscow.
