Rabbi Mayer Birnbaum is noted for his authorship of the Pathway to Prayer series published by Feldheim and ArtScroll.


Several Talmudic scholars of note have emerged from the yeshiva. Among the most prominent is Yecheskel Sklar, author of Toras Haman Ha'agagi, a complex treatise regarding the acceptability of Amalekite conversion. Sklar is especially noted for breaking convention by engaging in pilpulic methodology, as opposed to the more common Brisker method. Other noted alumni include Shimshy Berger, an internationally renowned lamdan. Berger currently studies in Beth Medrash Govoha.
