What a nice way to begin תשפ”ב. I can’t imagine how proud the Rebbe must be of this. May Hashem bentch you with tremendous success. כל המציל נפש אחת מישראל כאילו הציל עולם מלא.

Yasher Koach for taking on this project and for doing it until the end, making sure every child is cared for even after getting accepted. This is such good news for our community! Instead of just complaining about the situation, you took matters into your own hands and decided to actually do something about it!

Parents

Parents have to be real and honest with what is best for their child – not what’s best financially or for social status. There are two talmidim that I know of, in a school in CH, whose parents were clearly told by the admin that this is not the right school for them – because it’s clearly not -and the parents choose to keep the kids their, to their kids detriment. Believe it or not, sometimes when you are not accepted to a school or program, it’s not just because of lack of space – it may actually not be… Read more »

I consider this initiative פיקוח נפש I am involved with a high school that does open its heart and tries create a “ home “ for students that other schools Refuse to accept because they claim they have too many students but in reality simply don’t want to deal with students that have “ issues”, of any kind Of course ,that is the easier course ,however ,it is not the approach the Rebbe has.Having accepted students with “issues”( though we are a mainstream school) I can attest to the fact that they have progressed and succeeded and today are proud… Read more »

Thank you!

Is the issue that grave?

It was the Rebbes directive countless times (all printed in igres) that if one doesn’t fit the standards of yeshivah and may have a negative effect on others they shouldn’t be accepted. So not “every talmid”“deserves” to be accepted to the yeshivah “of his choice”..
Just saying..

Besides the above mentioned, this really is a Beautiful idea!

Unfortunately, in the past, as I know from some bochurim that we’re not accepted into mesivta, they ended up going to other high schools…

I tried to get our son into various mesivtas. Some said we are full. One said yes, but as it turned out, they ended up closing their doors. One did not accept our son and I ended up thanking the menahel weeks later. I had read about Machon Aharon on COL so I figured I’d give it a try. He had a zoom interview and he was accepted! Although the mesivta is based in Eretz Yisroel, the first zman was held in south Florida, since covid made it complicated for the boys to get to EY. Rabbi Pinny Andrusier graciously… Read more »
