    I think if when I was in yeshiva thay would have done this it would have been a tremendous ”toeles” as I always felt the magid shiur was trying to cater for everyone and as a result catered for nobody

    YG has this system and its actually the most amazing yeshiva out there because of this amazing system they do. If only all yeshiva would follow along the path of YG Melbourne and now London, bochrim would actually learn rather than fall asleep or be lost during shiur, honestly love this idea!! Go London!!

    Um?

    Um?

    They do this in Morristown? And have for years?

    Excellent idea!

    Excellent idea!

    All Yeshivas should have such a system in place.
    The idea that you go to a certain level class due to your age, just does not make sense.

    Amazing!

    Amazing!

    I wish they had such a system when I was a Bochur. Not to say that I didn’t learn anything during my 3 years in Yeshiva, but a lot of time was wasted and I would have probably learnt and enjoyed a lot more during those years, had such a system been put in place.

    Thank you for reaching out to students of all levels

    Excellent low-cost or no-cost solution. Congratulations to London and to every institution that strives to increase student success, no matter where they are starting from. Let’s keep the good news coming. — A Yeshiva Parent

    When i was in Yeshiva Manchester in the Early 90’s they had this system. not regarded of age Etc. You would choose together with the rosh yeshiva which shiur you would attend. Could have stayed in the same Magid Shiur for more than a year. Or go stright to the higher class, though you were young.

    Great idea

    I hope many more yeshivas take on this new system! It makes so much more sense and will only help out the bochurim!

    Exactly like Yeshiva Gedola Melbourne

    Has been doing this forever. It’s amazing, ask the alumni and parents. Its wonderful that London is doing this too. If other Yeshiva’s want to know how this works and how successful it is you just have to look at the stellar example out there, it literally changes lives.

    i was there a couple years ago and they had this system

    Yeshivas, please take notice

    Its to late for most of my own kids, unfortunately. How I wish this was done many years ago–in all Yeshivos! And perhaps girls schools can adapt this idea too. Does every girl have ferociously write notes all day long–regardless of the subjects imposed–as the teacher *whizzes* over one’s heads of several in the class? לעולם, לעולם, לעולם לעולם ילמד אדם במקום שלבו חפץ Our sage assert this timeless imperative: “Forever a person should study the area his heart desires!” Hanolos, there is a very simple equation here, and this equation address a PART OF (but surely not more than… Read more »

    This is a wonderful idea that should be used at many levels, including in elementary school. Using the teachers the school already has, students can be divided into levels more catered to their abilities, allowing each to achieve their best!

    Nicely done

    Kol hakavod, London! This is a very reasonable and sensible way to do it. Yeshivah Gedolah in Melbourne has been doing this for many, many years with resounding success.

    good idea

    good idea

    for a small yeshiva like london but not necessarily ideal for the bigger mainstream yeshiva .

    Great idea

    always setting a great example for others, leading and lighting up the way like true tomim.

    brilliant!!

    As a mother of bochurim, I cannot praise this idea enough! Thank you for allowing my son to feel confident in his yeshiva, rather than feel like he’ll never make it. You don’t know what you’ve done for him

    Was there many years ago. He couldn’t learn gemmara and asked to learn Chumish instead. He was told, no! Imagine, a boy asking to learn what he wants to learn and being told that if he does that, other boys will also want to do that …. so he went through the whole yeshiva system, never happy, never learned anything, never getting questions answered and I leave it to your imagination where he’s holding in Yiddishkiet now. Every parent should reach out to the yeshivas and make sure that the hanhala cares, really cares about their big, not about the… Read more »
