Responding to the ever-increasing need for a positive, empowering and individualized Yeshiva experience, a new Zal is opening in Long Island, NY to cater to Bochurim looking to develop themselves as Chassidim in a conventional, top-notch Yeshiva, with customized learning plans to suit their individual needs.
The Yeshiva’s goal is that every motivated Bochur should have a warm Yeshiva that provides him with the curriculum and environment where he can thrive. Our nurturing environment will facilitate growth in learning and personal development as a Chossid.
A Forward-Thinking Faculty
Our Mechanchim connect with, guide, and challenge the Bochurim, cultivating within them a Chassidishe identity and a love of learning. They are relatable, and focus on the practical application of their subjects, addressing the challenges facing young Bochurim today through the teachings of Chassidus. Our Hanholo focuses on and encourages the development of valuable qualities and skills that will serve them in life, whether as a Shliach or a Chassidisher Yungerman.
An Individualized Curriculum
From Gemoroh L’iyun to History, Smicha and Chassidus Applied, we aim for every Bochur to feel productive and successful. We also include an hour every day, for extra-curricular activities that leverage a Bochur’s strengths and talents, preparing them for a productive life as a healthy, Chassidishe Yid.
Our individualized curriculum provides unique learning opportunities for all Bochurim and their diverse learning styles. Whether they are more of a maskil or prefer a more hands-on approach to learning, each Bochur will partner with us in creating an individualized Shiur curriculum and he will be able to track his own progress throughout the year.
Our daily schedule begins with Mikvah, Chassidus, and Davening. Sedorim are divided into 7 daily 45-60 minute sessions. Each Shiur (besides for Smicha) has a different topic and set goal. Learning is conducted with a Chavrusah or in small group-based Shiurim, setting the stage for spirited discussion.
