Margolin Hebrew Academy
Feinstone Yeshiva of the South
Margolin Hebrew Academy/Feinstone Yeshiva of the South, (or MHA/FYOS), is an Orthodox Jewish school for students from pre-kindergarten through high school located in Memphis, Tennessee.
Graduates of MHA/FYOS have gone on to the finest universities, yeshivot and seminaries in Israel and have outstanding careers in many fields of endeavor. We seek to instill in our students an attachment to the State of Israel and its people, as well as a sense of responsibility for their welfare.
Many alumni currently serve on our board of trustees and remain involved in fundraising and other supportive activities on behalf of their alma mater. MHA/FYOS is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and is affiliated with the Memphis Jewish Federation.
The school is situated on a beautiful 7-acre parcel in a residential section of East Memphis. Its central building includes classrooms, offices, a computer lab, gymnasium, art room and dining room. The early childhood department has outstanding facilities. The campus includes large open areas that serve as playing fields.
In 2004, two new playgrounds were completed to serve the individual recreational needs and abilities of preschool children ages 2-5 and elementary school students ages 6-12. The Little Tikes commercial play centers are constructed on a Vitriturf safety surface and cover in excess of 4,500 square feet. Our students now benefit from a state-of-the-art playground that is on par with any city park in the Memphis area.
The Cooper Yeshiva High School for Boys' wing includes a beit midrash, classrooms and a student lounge. Goldie Margolin School for Girls is housed in a separate building on the campus with a beit midrasha specifically for the girls' use. There are two separate dormitories for the non-resident students.
MHA/FYOS has an outstanding faculty and administration, many of whom have been associated with the school for several years. This continuity allows the school to track each student closely to ensure an optimum educational experience.
With the support of the three Orthodox congregations and the Vaad Harabonim of Memphis, a remarkably involved and supportive parent and alumni base, and an exceptional administration, faculty and staff, Margolin Hebrew Academy/Feinstone Yeshiva of the South offers its students an education steeped in tradition and Torah values. At the same time, the school provides the most up to date curriculum and technology available, including sixty computers school wide in both a computer lab setting and in each classroom. The longevity of the school and the accomplishments of its students, past and present, are the true gauge of its success.
