Yeshiva System Not Working?

Applied Chassidus with Rabbi Simon Jacobson: Is our Yeshiva system based on the Rebbe’s guidelines? If so, what can we do if it isn’t working for many of our students? Video

Parents dont realize

If less than half of bochrim complete the system and half of them are functioning with chasidish values imbued in their lifestyle then we as a community are going bankrupt Mesiftas need to come to terms that being chasidish and being full of simchas hachaim needs and deserves to be a attainment of their mission statement The fact that most bochrim fall way off this level and then sit quietly on the sidelines and not even pull the alarms to let everyone know unfortunately enable this epidemic to ravage our next generation who are becoming modern orthodox These same mosdos… Read more »

Calling on leadership
June 5, 2018 3:18 am

Please. Take a good look. Please. Initiate a better way. Please. Before it’s too late. If you are enabling a dysfunctional or ineffective system them reaches only a certain kind of learning, there is a good possibility that effective yeshivas will be a thing of the past. Please take some time with a group of experts in the field to save the yeshivas. Whatever it takes.

They are doing it right

The only yeshivas I know of that actually cater to today’s bucherim, is new haven zal and maybe YG in Australia.

A suggestion

Imho it’s time the yeshivos started learning more girsa too and have the talmidim be filled with more quantity of knowledge in nigleh and in chassidus. Sichos, shulchon aruch, tanach easy gemoros etc.

It’s worse than it sems

There a a number of me Menahalem (no loshon horrah) who don’t make any effort to instill true kabolas ol in bochurim. But instead care about “how good the yeshiva looks” and give big punishments and almost no recognition of the good bochurim do. I hope those unnamed people will realize their mistakes and work with bochurim to make them more responsible and kabolas oldikeh yidden

See the chidon

Look at all the kids studying for the chidon on their own time. You may find them doing yeshivas erev at Yagdil Torah. There is a real culture of learning, a real excitement. But this is a recent thing. There needs to be something big for all the mesivta bochurim that didn’t have this experience

For a start ...

How about increasing the amount of rebbe’s per students .smaller classes more individual attention ….its cost more money ….but… Children will do better and rebbe’s will understand them better. Zg

Its not good
June 3, 2018 9:17 pm

Its so evident that so many boys dont benefit from the yeshiva system. Bad bochrim drop out or are kicked out or not allowed in The good ones that are left are busy on their phones watching movies. So many of them become numb and expression less with their hat and jackets Where are the ones that have simchas hachaim and the ones that stay late in zal to learn or the ones that wake up eArly when its still dark out? The number is shrinking Our yeshiva system cant be blamed. However its watching so many boys who arent… Read more »

It sure is time!

So many students are being deprived of the kind of instruction they need and deserve, because so many teachers are not informed about the truth that not everyone learns the same thing in the same way! As a result, many students do not get an opportunity to reach their potential and end up with problems of all sorts. This is not THEIR failure, it is the failure of an ineffective paradigm of education and learning. More specialists, more experts are necessary. It is time.

Yeshiva System
June 3, 2018 6:58 pm

Sore Subject! Yes, everything taught needs to stay the same as the Rebbe wanted. But for goodness sake already, when will the Hanhola realize that each Neshama is different. Stop this nonsense once & for all of trying sooo hard to make “one mould fits all”! It’s years now that it’s NOT WORKING. The Yeshiva System is losing too many valuable Neshamas to drugs, abuse, & going off the Derech. It’s time for the Hanhola to open their eyes & hearts, & embrace those bochorim who want to enter their Mosdos. Isn’t this just what the Teachings of Torah is… Read more »

Too full
June 3, 2018 5:20 pm

I would love to go to the yeshiva system, go into the teiva of Torah and tfillah. I’ve tried several times but the response from the hanholo is a shove away and a negative “too full”. If they would have more love and space it would work for some who actually like the system…
