The Yeshiva currently has over one hundred and fifty students learning in its various departments. The Yeshiva allows boys who want to earn their Baccalaureate diploma to do so with a French Ministry of Education-accredited general studies program, in a Yeshiva framework with a high level of kodesh studies. Two years of kulo kodesh follows the high school program. A high caliber kollel is attached to the yeshiva; it has a strong influence on the yeshiva students and has produced many great rabonim and poskim who serve communities around the world. Aix-les-Bains also features a yeshiva ketana where only kodesh studies are pursued. All these institutions are headed by the indefatigable octogenarian Rav Yitzchok Weill, Rosh Yeshiva of Aix-les-Bains, who was a close disciple of Rav Chaikin and despite his advanced age continues to give shiurim to the talmidim and be involved in every aspect of the running of the yeshiva. Rav Yitzchok Weill is also the Rav of the Aix-les-Bains kehilla and is a leading rabbinical figure in France, whose guidance is sought in important communal matters.


The Yeshiva continues to exert a positive spiritual influence on the entire country of France, and Europe more broadly. The yeshiva campus is situated in a pastoral setting in a beautiful resort town with a large lake and the towering Mount Revard and the Alps of the Savoie region. Away from the distractions of the big city, the Yeshiva of Aix-les-Bains' quiet location enables young men to focus entirely on study and self-improvement. The Yeshiva of Aix-les-Bains boasts a fully functioning dormitory and kitchen with supportive staff. The yeshiva continues to welcome students from all over France and beyond. The yeshiva's graduates, from chief rabbis and yeshiva heads to scientists, doctors, and professors, are testament to its excellent Jewish and secular education and the legacy of the Chofetz Chaim's ethical teachings, transmitted to generations of students by Rav Chaikin זצ"ל and יבל"ח the current rosh yeshiva Rav Weil שליט"א.
