Following an enormously successful inaugural year, Yeshivas Kayitz of Tannersville is back for its second summer.
Launched last year by the hanhalah of Oholei Torah in response to enormous demand, the camp is open for registration to students from all Lubavitch mosdos who are graduating 8th grade.
New for this summer, the camp has announced the appointment of their new Director, Rabbi Yisroel Levertov, who comes with many years of experience.
Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Rabbi Levertov has been working in camps from a very young age. He spent the past few summers running camps all over the globe, including Toronto, Canada, Johannesburg, South Africa, Dnepr, Ukraine and Camp Gan Israel of Parksville, New York.
“Each summer, hundreds of Talmidim leave 8th Grade as children and enter Mesivta as Bochurim, encountering endless new experiences, expectations, responsibilities and opportunities for achievement,” says Levertov. “The goal of the camp is to utilize these months as more than an island in time, but a bridge between worlds, providing the tools, knowledge, motivation and responsibility to thrive in Mesivta and in life.”
Yeshivas Kayitz Tannersville provides a top-quality program designed and directed by professional and experienced Mechanchim. With a comprehensive program of academics and adventure, YKT will be an experience of active learning and growing in Torah and Yiras Shamayim, based on the strengths and interests of each individual Talmid.
A unique aspect of the camp’s educational program are learning classes divided by level, providing each talmid the chance to shine in the ideal environment.
YKT’s counselors, Rebbeim and Mashpiim are trained educators and caring guides, each with several years of practical experience. They will focus on providing the tools, knowledge, motivation and responsibility necessary to thrive in Mesivta and in life.
Rabbi Mendel Polter, veteran mechanech and renowned authority on teaching Gemara, will also be on staff.
YKT will take place in upstate New York, in close proximity to the large Tannersville community. On the mountaintop campsite, Talmidim will enjoy crisp and cool air and wide array of on-site and nearby activities. The program will also include art, music, Safrus, first aid, kashering kitchens, public speaking and more.
In addition to strong learning and personal development skills, YKT’s program will innovate with V’da Ma Shetoshiv, an eye-opening session on the foundations of Yahadus and Chassidus. By addressing the questions asked on Mivtzoim or asked of themselves, Talmidim can look forward to strengthening their understanding of and connection to Yiddishkeit and Chassidishkeit in practical and meaningful ways.
Yeshivas Kayitz Tannersville is under the executive directorship of Rabbi Sholom Goldstein. As the Menahel of Oholei Torah Mechina, Rabbi Goldstein is known as a hands-on, attentive principal who is respected by parents, beloved by students and admired by teachers. Rabbi Goldstein is continually introducing valuable Chinuch principles that positively affect Talmidim in all grades.
