How come all the American yeshivos learn so slow? The Yeshiva (12th grade) I went to this past year in the winter zman, which was 7 months, all we did first seder was from beis until 6b in Bava Metziah. That is five blatt. Second Seder we did from 8a-12a. That is 4 blatt. That means the entire winter zman of an ibbur yor all we did was nine blatt. Now, we were not wasting our time, we were learning all day long every day. But we just kvetched on every small ha'arah etc.
Rav Shach, Rav Shteinman, Rav Michel Yehudah ZT''L, Reb Shlomo wolbe, Rav Gifter and many other gedolim all are/were strongly against this mehalach. In Eretz Yisrael, the average Israeli yeshiva learn over 20 blatt first seder. And even on this the gedolim complained
Rav Shach in Michtovim writes, ''learning like this will cause torah to be forgotten from klal yisrael. The Yeshivos think you can do 15-20 blatt first seder and be yotzei going fast second seder.'' Now Rav Shach complained about 15 blatt, now we are doing 5 blatt. And Rav Shach was talking about where they go quick second seder. All we did was just 4 blatt.
So for this coming year I had to find a bais Medrash. But I can not find a decent Yeshiva in America yeshiva that learns a little quicker. There are around 40 yeshivos on the East Coast. NOT ONE IS LEarning the way the gedolim taught us to.
Why not 1 in 40?
And where did this mehalach come form if all the gedolim were so against it?
And according to this mehalach If let's say someone wanted to finsh Bava Metzia it would take over 10 years. Is this where Talmidei Chachamim who know shas and poskim are going to come form?
