An Israeli bachur (whose parents made alliyah from the US) in his twenties recently arrived in Brooklyn looking for work/training. Can you recommend any learning/ or chizuk group for similar boys that I can let him know about?
He is here pretty much all on his own & put off by the chareidi yeshiva situation he experienced in Israel.
Is there an evening learning program or get-togethers for these struggling Israeli boys?
Or maybe vocational guidance for him?
Thank you, A’ Gut Moed.
Why isn’t the “Israeli bachur (whose parents made alliyah from the US) in his twenties” looking to find work/training in Israel?
Chabad is always an option — I mean shluchim, not Crown Heights. There’s also a Breslov Center in Brooklyn.
Just a thought, but why not look for work in Israel? Think of your future kids — they will be able to study Torah at such a higher level if they speak Hebrew fluently, and so much less likely to intermarry if they go OTD, c”v’s. If you’re turned off by the kind of Yiddishkeit or schools you grew up with there’s a million other Orthodox options to choose from in Israel. Why move to one of the most expensive places in the world (Brooklyn) when there are so many advantages where you were, and hardly any tuition compared to the US? If parnassa is your concern, the tech industry in Israel is booming like crazy and there is no end in sight.
So why do so many secular (and religious) Israelis move to the US and Europe for parnassa?
