Rabbi Jacob Joseph Yeshiva
The Rabbi Jacob Joseph School is an Orthodox Jewish day school located in Staten Island, New York that serves students from nursery through twelfth grade. The school was founded in 1903 and named in honor of Rabbi Jacob Joseph, chief rabbi of New York City's Association of American Orthodox Hebrew Congregations.
After Joseph's death, his son Raphael and Samuel I. Andron obtained a charter from the New York Board of Regents in 1903 to establish a school in his name. The Rabbi Jacob Joseph School was known for its rigorous Talmudic curriculum and remains open to students from nursery age through the twelfth grade.
Its founders originally established the school on Manhattan's Orchard Street in the Lower East Side, but later moved it to Henry Street. In 1976, the school moved to the Richmondtown area of Staten Island, where it still maintains the boys' school campus; a girls division of the elementary school was established in Staten Island's Graniteville section. In 1982, a boys high school branch and Beis Medrash was opened in Edison, New Jersey.
Although the school ("RJJ") is no longer an "advanced" yeshiva, it "produced hundred of rabbis and community leaders in the late 1940s, the 1950s and the 1960s, and was also an important feeder school for the Lakewood yeshiva, Beth Medrash Govoha".
The School also produces a semi-annual scholarly publication, the Journal of Halacha and Contemporary Society ("The RJJ Journal"), edited by one of its rabbinic alumni. The purpose of the Journal is to "study the major questions facing Jews... through the prism of Torah values," and "explore the relevant biblical and Talmudic passages and survey the halachic literature including the most recent responsa. The Journal does not in any way seek to present itself as the halachic authority on any question, but hopes rather to inform the Jewish public of the positions taken by rabbinic leaders over the generations."
Rabbi Dr. Marvin Schick has served for over 30 years as the (unpaid) President of RJJ.

Marvin Schick: The Yeshiva on Henry Street
Allen and I came to the Rabbi Jacob Joseph School on Henry Street on the Lower East Side in November 1943, eight years after our older brother Arthur. Allen is my twin and we were nine, fourth-graders for "English," as secular studies were then called in all yeshivas and the way they are still called in many of our schools.

On the Main Line: A 1903 critique of the RJJ yeshiva's dual Torah and Madda curriculum
Here's a fascinating editorial note in the Nov 27, 1903 issue of the American Hebrew. As you can see, it opposes one element of the appeal for funds for a larger building needed by the Rabbi Jacob Joseph Yeshiva, then very new: that the yeshiva provides secular education under the same roof as its religious education.

Musings of a Jewish Bookseller: The DEUTSCHER VEREIN German Club in Yeshiva University in 1950 and it's arguably extremely bad taste
In the 1950 Yearbook of Yeshiva University, Masmid, among the many clubs of the school appears the Deutscher Verein. Just 5 years after the end of the Holocaust, it is striking how insensitive the students were to the Holocaust Victims and how very German this were, and proud of it too.

Ridgwood, Queens, NY - Thousands Attend Gravesite Of Rabbi Yaakov Joseph Zt'l On 107 Yahrzeit -- VosIzNeias.com
Ridgwood, Queens, NY - Thousands are participating in prayer visits, reciting Tehillim, at the gravesite of Rabbi Yaakov Joseph, in Union Field Cemetery, 82-11 Cypress Avenue in Ridgewood, Queens, not far from Williamsburg, today Thursday, 24 Tammuz, July 16. on the 107 Yahrzeit. Last Year Last year, on the yahrzeit, buses came from Williamsburg and elsewhere, bringing visitors to the cemetery. The usually quiet and tranquil spot was suddenly busy with people rushing to the gravesite of the chief rabbi. People packed the area of the tombstone. Included were many rabbis and their congregants, Chassidishe Rebbes with their disciples, and Roshei Yeshiva and their students, praying and jostling for standing room in the immediate vicinity. NY Times article from 1902 report of the passing of Rabbi Joseph ZT'l [PDF file] Hundreds of candles were lit, intensifying the day's heat. Thousands of tearful prayers of supplicants were heard all day long, beseeching Hashem to answer all tefillos and ease their oppressive burdens. Rabbi Jacob Joseph was born in Krozhe Province of Kovno. He studied at the yeshiva in Volozhin under Rabbi Yisroel Salanter, zt"l (1810-1883), and was elected as Rav of Vilon, Yurburg, and Zhagovy before becoming Maggid and acting Rav of Vilna in 1883. A brilliant Talmudist, Rabbi Joseph was especially known for his exceptional homiletical talents. A Chief Rabbi Is Sought When Rabbi Avraham Yosef Asch, zt"l (1813- 1887), first Rav of Beis Medrash HaGadol of the Lower East Side, passed away, a new Rav was sought. There was a common consensus that organizing the many congregations in New York City under one banner was urgently needed and a decision was made by the 15 most prominent kehillos to appoint a Chief Rabbi. Requests were sent to the leading rabbis of Europe, the seat of religious Jewry at that time, for recommendations of candidates. Several outstanding applicants
