Ner Israel Rabbinical College (ישיבת נר ישראל), or NIRC, is a prominent yeshiva in Baltimore, in the U.S. state of Maryland, founded in 1933 by Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchok Ruderman, a disciple of Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel, dean of the Slabodka yeshiva in Lithuania. It is currently headed by Rabbi Aharon Feldman, a disciple of Rabbi Ruderman.

The yeshiva is an all-male Lithuanian (Litvish)-style Talmudic college and is politically affiliated with Agudath Israel of America.

The yeshiva campus is located at Mt. Wilson Lane, just northwest of the Baltimore City limits. Ner Yisroel has two central study halls, one for the high school and one much larger for the beis medrash and the kollel (also doubling as the main prayer sanctuaries). Enrollment is approximately 250 students in its high school division, 400 students in its beis medrash/undergraduate division, and about 300 members in its kollel/postgraduate division.
