Beginning next fall, Tiferes Bachurim Yeshiva in Morristown will be launching a new post-High-School program, Ateres Bachurim, at their New Jersey campus.
The program was created to inspire and energize the next generation of Chassidim through authentic yeshiva learning, focusing on personal growth, and learning skills in both the Talmudic and Chassidic studies all of which will be taught by the Yeshiva Rabbis who have years of experience in teaching students with an array of skills sets.
“We invite students from all Jewish backgrounds to join the program, more specifically we are searching for students who are eager to learn and grow,” the hanhalla said.
“We intend to create this atmosphere for growth through rigorously structured and executed daily curriculum supported by our Rabbis and dedicated shluchim,” they said.
“In the past few years increasing numbers of younger students, products of growing programs such as cteens and ckids, have applied to Yeshiva Tiferes Bachurim,” explains Rabbi Yaakov Wagner, the Program Mashpia. “As a result the decision has been made to develop a track within our yeshiva that highlights these students and focuses on their unique needs. While Tiferes is a mature yeshiva that attracts studious talmidim affording them the opportunity to build skills in all areas of learning, this new track will add more incentives, recreation, and extra oversight. We are excited at the initial very positive response from parents and shluchim alike.”
Students’ personal growth will be achieved through a range of extracurricular programming which includes Friday outreach Mivtzoim programs – helping local shluchim and reaching out to local community members, Shabbatons across the New Jersey – New York area and beyond, and Farbrengens with guest speakers and Shluchim.
The program will also include sports on their on-site football and basketball grounds, beautiful forests for running and walking, on-site gym and in the winter months off-site locations for sports, as well as monthly and bi-weekly trips.
The Yeshiva will also be arranging for speakers and events with a range of inspiring and eye-opening speakers and open mic nights and other special events throughout the year.
The Staff and Rabbis of Tiferes will be available as personal mentors to all students of the program, to provide guidance and anything the student would need.
The Ateres Program is a project of Tiferes Bachurim and will, therefore, be run in the Tiferes Zal and has a range of students from across the globe, all of which have a range of ages and life experiences and will, therefore, create a cohesive bond of students who are eager to learn and grow.
“The past few months have been so incredibly difficult for people globally,” said Ben Bursk, the Program Head Shliach. “I am so grateful for the opportunity to help bring back the smiles to bachurims faces with personal care and attention to each bochur and to be able to elevate them to their true potential.”
Bochurim who will be staffing the program are looking forward to a year in which the students will experience a year of a lifetime.
“This is just so exciting, after spending my last few years of Yeshiva in Tiferes, I am so excited to be able to give over everything I have learned to new students,” said Zachary Kramer, the Program Coordinator.
“It is a privilege to be involved with the Ateres program,” said Mendy Uhrmacher, the Program Shliach. “I am looking forward to the coming year, farbrenging, learning and spending time with you all.”
