WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT THIS MESIVTA?
This Mesivta aims to serve an ever growing need for Anash English-speaking Olim, who are looking for a chasiddishe Mesivta with interactive and engaging learning and style chinuch in general, for their son.
The Mesivta is also catering for bochurim overseas looking for this type of yeshivah.
WHAT TYPE OF BOCHUR IS THIS MESIVTA CATERING TO?
We will be catering for bochurim who want to grow and thrive in their learning and chassidishkeit, and who are looking for a place that will give them both personal guidance, and the tools that they need to be matzliach.
WHAT IS THE GOAL OF THIS YESHIVAH?
To nurture each bochur’s interest in learning; to help them develop a geshmak in learning Torah by teaching them necessary skills; and to guide each bochur individually in their personal growth.
We aim to help bochurim become self motivated – (see ספר השיחות ה’תנשא page 603) – ‘שלהבת עולה מאליה’
Chinuch literally means ‘dedication’ as in חנוכת המזבח.
Our goal is to be מחנך – to help each bochur dedicate himself to his unique and individual שליחות.
CAN YOU DESCRIBE HOW YOU HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH THE GOALS THAT YOU HAVE MENTIONED?
There are a few ways that we plan to do this:
1) The learning will be engaging, in a way that will not only make sure that each bochur understands the subject at hand, but will also give them the skills needed to learn on their own.
2) We aim to help each bochur find their own מה שליבו חפץ in Torah, and will be setting aside specific time each day, to build and encourage that interest.
This is obviously in addition to learning נגלה וחסידות בסדרים together with everyone
3) As we know, davening is a crucial and central part of our day. It strongly affects our ‘יראת שמים מידות טובות, התקשורת וכו – this is clearly pointed out in multiple sources and can be seen in practice.
However, we often davven out of routine, without realising that in order to be able to davven in a way that really affects us internally, we need to be guided and taught how to davven properly.
Therefore, we will be having a special shiur on פירוש המילות – the simple meaning of the words, together with some insights of חסידות, together with practical guidance that is relevant to Mesivta age bochurim.
4) One to one talks on a regular basis, together with meaningful group farbrengens – both with staff and various guest speakers – will definitely play a major role in each bochur’s development.
WHERE IN KFAR CHABAD IS THE YESHIVAH LOCATED?
Our Yeshiva is in a two storey villa with a large porch. There is a warm, heimishe atmosphere, where the bochurim feel at home.
It is worth noting that Kfar Chabad is a one of a kind place…a Chassidisher village from the people to the street names. There really is a very special feeling, that is unlike any other place.
WILL THERE BE ANY TRIPS/ SHABBATONS?
Occasionally. These will be something the bochurim will earn.
There will be regular swimming. In addition there will be bicycles for each bochur for his own convenience, whether for going to the mikva in the morning, going to the store, or just biking around the Kfar during breaks.
Note – leaving the Kfar without permission is strictly prohibited.
