love this yeshiva

from experience I can tell you that the boys here are given great hiskashrus to the Rebbe,and a love of learning, that I have not seen anywhere else. have had sons in many different yeshivas. this is a model place for todays boys.
you have a great opportunity to support and win amazing prizes.
standing for hours the Rebbe taught us the great gift and blessings of Tzedoka.we need to emulate the Rebbes teachings by constantly giving.

BS”D If we aren’t providing the help that is so much needed then what are we as a community? I was a struggling teen too, now B”H I’ve really been turned around thanks to the care, and love of the community. I know others who had it a bit harder and still came through, but then where is our shlichus here? Show this to the rest of the Chassidishe world, let them learn from our success, and let them set up and fund similar things for their bochurim. Many times, the more “off” kids become the most created and enlightened… Read more »

I always felt that Wilkes Barre Yeshiva is a little well kept secret and always felt it was a big shame. They are extraordinarily caring and devoted to each boy. They interact with the boys with the utmost love and respect, but at the same time they set borders. As someone who has a boy go through bais menachem and from there, went on to mainstream yeshiva, I can say with total honesty that there is no other places like Wilkes. I will forever be appreciative of all the Uri Perelman and bais menachem have done for my son and… Read more »

What about for Girls?
Guest
What about for Girls?

There should be a place for girls also that just don’t follow the standard academic track. Girls that need more hand on, practical and involved learning rather than the standard memorize and spit back, which essentially doesn’t really prepare them for adult life.

The System
Guest
The System

Willkes Barre is great but there’s no excuse for the typical Yeshivos to be unrealistic.

I recently heard of a Yeshiva Ktana (not in Isreal, but in the tri state area) that bans such basic humane things as playing musical instruments (a practice done in the beis hamikdosh) and simple exercises such as running (a practice encouraged by the Rambam).

When will they realize that it these very unnecessary, unrealistic and excessive rules that cause so many of our youth to run the other way?!

What about the girls? Part TWO
Guest

Need more programs for girls off the derech high school and post high school.. This is the age where they can turn themselves around for life? Where is the help for our off the derech youth???????????????

I hope everyone really takes advantage of these type of educational institutions.and not to the think they are “below the standerd”. Because as long as you’re trying Torah is torah and God is God no matter where you find it. peace and love to all my brothers in wilks and especially to the shluchim,yosef you couldn’t have got a better face,;)

So sorry to hear about the sudden passing of your father. He will continue to get Chassidishe nachas from the great work you are doing with the semicha boys at Bais Menachem.
They really look up to you as a great example. Keep strong.

was crying when i read this
Guest
was crying when i read this

i am a grandfather of boys…all of them k’h wonderful beautiful children, but not all of them are learners, some struggle with identity, etc..
to see a yeshiva that is helping apparently so much, just brought tears to my eyes. none of our children are chas f’sholom ‘farfallen’…..

they just need someone to bring out their unique inner light. i am sending a donation…i hope everyone does and this yeshiva will expand and no longer be a secret.

As a resident of the Wilkes Barre area, I would like to say that not only are they doing great work with the bachurim at the Yeshiva, they are also a vital part of our community. They can be found doing Mivtzoim, and helping out in any way possible. We are truly blessed to have them here.

Great that the boys are having a wonderful influence on their surroundings. This is proof of enacting what they are learning.
would love to hear from the boys themselves what they are doing in the neighborhood.

Everyone should put a strong effort in supporting this incredible Yeshivah.

Bais Menachem is amazing

A friend has a son who was finding it hard to find direction in his life. He is now at Bais Menachem and has turned his life around and is loving learning and has recommitted to The Rebbe and his family. Rabbi Perlman and the others are doing an amazing job.

your first million
Guest
your first million

The Rebbe was never satisfied, as you watch THE LIVING TORAH, it inspires!
The Rebbe says to someone if you have given your first million, let me know when you have given your second million, or something like that.
Hashem has abundance and will pay you back many times.

how would you feel?

ok, this is an amazing place with devoted and caring staff and i’m a huge fan. i am slightly annoyed at the tone of this article as it is a bit condescending. why re we writing that these boys “are struggling with their Yiddishkeit, or with the “system”, or with themselves”. even if it may be true, not each is true for all,and we should be more sensitive. maybe they have a hard time sitting for ten hours a day. or maybe they had a very negative experience in yeshiva….its not always important to go into details. maybe consider revising… Read more »

you give good advice about being sensitive

please take perek lamed and review it, so you can be sensitive to the one who wrote the article.
we must not ask to see what we want to see, but what is truth and we need to focus on being caring to what others write.
