    An organization dedicated to scholastic pursuits or research is a
    *yejHaD* /institute/ or /institution/ or a *yej'an* /society./ The
    distinction between *yejHaD* and *yej'an* is not clear, though the
    former is usually — but not always — used for larger organizations.
    It is not known whether the first syllable of these words
    *(**yej**)* is *yej* /council, assembly,/ but there could be some
    historic connection. /[HolQeD]/

With this warning from Okrand regarding analyzing *yej* in these 
words**, I would avoid drawing a conclusion about the difference between 
*rIp* and *yej* based on those words.
