Beth Medrash Govoha (Hebrew: ??? ???? ????) (lit: Higher, or advanced, House of Study) is a Haredi yeshiva located in Lakewood Township, New Jersey. It is commonly known as BMG, or Lakewood Yeshiva. Founded in 1943 by Rabbi Aharon Kotler and Rabbi Nosson Meir Wachtfogel, the yeshiva currently has over 6,400 students, making it one of the largest yeshivas in the world.[1] Over the years, the roshei yeshiva of BMG have all been associated with the Kotler family, beginning with Rabbi Aharon Kotler from 1943 until his death in 1962; Rabbi Shneur Kotler, his son, who led the yeshiva from 1962 until his death in 1982; and the present roshei yeshiva, Rabbi Malkiel Kotler (son of Rabbi Shneur), Rabbi Yerucham Olshin, Rabbi Dovid Schustal, and Rabbi Yisroel Neuman; the latter three are married to grandchildren of Rabbi Aharon Kotler. To manage the huge enrollment, the four roshei yeshiva divide up the times they deliver shiurim (Torah lectures) in the various battei medrash (study halls) on campus. They have also appointed dozens of roshei chabura (heads of small study groups) to take responsibility for groups of students.
