Dear Parents:

We are delighted that you are considering Joan Dachs Bais Yaakov – Yeshivas Tiferes Tzvi for your child’s chinuch. We are confident that you will find our dedicated Rabbeim, Moros, and teachers to be instrumental partners in the important role of חינוך הבנים והבנות על טהרת הקודש. Please note that due to increasing enrollment we have very limited space.

Application forms are available in 2 ways:
• The Paper application can be downloaded here or please contact the Applications Coordinator, Mrs. Aliza Olswang, 773-465-8889 ext. 682 to receive one in the mail. Mail or drop off completed forms at 6122 N. California Ave. Chicago, IL 60659.

Please note the following steps in our application process:
1. Once payment is received, your application will be processed by the Business Office.
2. Applications are next reviewed by Rabbi Nosson Muller, Menahel of YTT, as the representative of our Vaad Hachinuch. All new families must meet with the Menahel in person. Families that have previously enrolled children in JDBY-YTT may also need to meet with the Menahel. His office will contact parents to schedule an appointment.
3. Upon Vaad Hachinuch approval, you will be contacted to set up an interview with the appropriate school administrator specific to your child(ren)’s grade level.
4. Upon administrator approval, you will receive an acceptance letter.
5. Registration is required for all new and existing students and is separate from the application process. Registration information will be provided after Pesach.

Due to various reasons, the Administration in conjunction with the Va’ad Hachinuch, have decided to extend the policy of not being able to accept students in grades 1 – 8 who are already attending another local day school for the upcoming year.

Students entering Nursery for the 2022-23 school year should be 4 years old by November 30, 2022. Students entering Pre-1A or kindergarten should be 5 by November 30, 2022.

The Nursery program is housed in the Chaya Sarah Tessler Campus at 6106 N. California. The program hours are 8:30 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. Monday through Thursday, and until 12:00 P.M. on Friday. We offer an optional additional afternoon Nursery program Monday through Thursday from 2:00 to 3:40 P.M, as well.

If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact Mrs. Olswang at 773-465-8889, ext. 682, or
