How lucky is CH to have such a program, giving the option to those that would benefit tremendously. Well done Yehuda Adelist, may you continue to go from strength to strength!

I’m not a rage against the machine sort of fellow but this the first time I heard of kids failing the system.

I’ve heard of the system failing the kid and of the system failing and of the kid failing, but kids failing the system is sorta kinda weird just saying

Children “failing the system”??

What you are really speaking of is the system “failing the children.”

While this article seems to be more of a personal advertisement, I applaud your effort to help children in need, and wish you and them every success.

All fine and good but what if the problem is not academic but something like social or lazyness or unmotivated You would think that yeshivas would work with all boys and include them. Unfortunately, they COULDN’T BE BOTHERED!!!
If the teacher or principal is lazier than the student you’re left with a PROBLEM!

This school is the absolute answer to many problems that can be avoided. Learning is catered to the children, the children realize that they are not a failure and they can really do it( its amazing to see this actually happen). We as parents want the best for our children,we want to see them succeed and this is what Darchai Limud makes a reality.
I am really happy with this Yeshiva!!!! Thank you Rabbi Adelest for your continuous effort!!!!!

for those blaming the system for failing the kids: the end of the day, the reality is that there is not enough man power or time for 1 teacher in a classroom to fix the problems of struggling kids. a program such as darchei limud is very beneficial not only in improving skills, but also boosting self esteem and confidence in students.
well done Rabbi Adelist

My son attends rabbi adelists program. The days that there is no program he is very upset. He enjoys all the individual attention that he receives in this program. The point reward system is amaZing. Every week the children are given a statement balance indicating how many points they have earned and which items they can redeem them for. I for one saw significant changes both cognitively and socially from my son. Thank you rabbi adelist and your dedicated team for filling a void in our community. Much hatzlacha!!!

Our son learned so much at Rabbi Adelist’s program. He gained skills and confidence in learning as well as reading. Rabbi Adelist truly caters to each student and is involved with every aspect of their learning and development. Thanks for the wonderful program. Asher and Miriam Friedman

Kol Hakavod for this wonderful initiative! It is truly a shame that students who genuinely struggle academically are stigmatised, but unfortunately, it is yet another pitfall of the frum community’s toxic obsession with externals and conformism.

I am happy to hear that this program is finally being streamlined. The benefit is twofold; the students themselves can remain in their familiar school environment while taking full advantage of the program, and the mainstream Yeshivas will hopefully acclimatise to and embrace the idea of having such a program on campus.

Keep up the great work, Rabbi Adelist!

Thank you Rabbi Adelist for dedicating so much of your time and energy in making this much needed program a great success.

From creating an original curriculum to a fantastic point and prize system to the individual attention given to each and every student and parent…

May this be a source of blessing and may you see much and much more success…

At first I thought this might be another start up school that will close down after a year, but I was wrong. Firstly, the principal is extremely devoted. He doesn’t try to cut corners. Secondly, the curriculum is created for the students; he tailor makes the curriculum. Thirdly, he interacts with students in a very communicative manner; he explains to the students why he does what he does and gives them the time of day so they can be heard. I’ve seen the effects of the program! A boy walked in there in first grade barely knowing the aleph beis… Read more »

It’s also beneficial to the mainstream school where the Chid goes, as when he’s ready to go back full time the school will be to say how they have these wonderful kids turned out and probably even get some credit.
Great idea!
Keep up the good work, and much success!

BUT WHAT ABOUT ZAL AGE BOCHURIM WHOSE PARENTS WANT TO SEND THEIR CHILDREN TO MAINSTREAM YESHIVOIS, NOT THE WACKY “REMEDIAL” ALTERNATIVES THAT ARE OUT THERE ??. THE SYSTEM IS FAILING THEM ALSO. YESHIVAS MUST DO MORE TO HELP THEM PROGRESS. THERE ARE NO CHOICE OF NORMAL ZAL YESHIVAHS THAT HAVE INFRASTRUCTURE TO HELP BOCHURIM REACH THEIR POTENTIAL, LIKE IN LlITVISHER/POILISHER YESHIVOIS, IF THEY HAVE HAD FORMATIVE DIFFICULT YEARS FROM THE EARLIEST GRADES TO ZAL AGE. WE NEED TO HEAR THEIR PAIN AND THE STIGMA THAT GOES WITH IT!!!! WAKE UP HANHOLOHS!!! WHAT HAVE WE BECOME IN CHABAD, ONE LARGE MELTING… Read more »

how many children have been dropped or dropped out of the yeshiva system because it failed them. It isn’t just the yeshiva system its the lack of tolerance from the children and parents as well as overwhelmed teachers that don’t want or cant or are qualified to deal with the children that aren’t average and need help. A great many of these children are singled out as problems and parents wont encourage their children to befriend or help them. This withdrawing cv” ends up with children being left out and feeling they are not part of the group. It can… Read more »

Many bucherim say that Smicha is successful because it’s a clear-cut curriculum we need a clear-cut curriculum with credits for the mesivta and zal
we’re boys get credits when they accomplish their curriculum goals
