The article says ” We are looking for Bochurim who want to be Chassidim of the Rebbe and act accordingly. Mivakshei Hashem who truly desire to grow in the journey of Chassidus, Yiddishkeit and life. Bochurim who will adhere to all Halachic norms and Chassidishe standards ” Shouldn’t the Yeshiva’s goal be to make the Bochurim who come fit this criteria as opposed to looking for Bochurim who already for it?

Amazing!
