Mesivta Torah Vodaas, aka MTV.
Love the initials!December 28, 2011 5:08 pm at 5:08 pm #840319
wat about torah vodaas
Ask your brother.December 28, 2011 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #840320
Are looking for a mesivta that meets all three requirements, is 2 out of 3 or even 1 out of three good enough? Despite the lack of punctuation, I understand you are looking for a mesivta that is
2)not too yeshivish
3)shtark litvish heimish
Can you tell us what is good in your eyes? A good group of rabbeim? A good english department? A good debate club? A good menahel?
Please define Yeshivish so we can tell you if it is too Yeshivish for you, or perhaps not yeshivish enough.
Please define litvish heimish? Once defined, we can determine if a place is shtark litvish heimish or just plain shvach litvish heimishe or perhaps just shtark.December 29, 2011 4:06 pm at 4:06 pm #840321
Daas yochid: my brother?? Huh??
Jothar: what exactly is so funny about the initials MTV??
Apushatayid: stop hocking just answer the question you know exactly what i mean!
nfgo3: sorry about my punctuation!December 29, 2011 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm #840322bptParticipant
” what’..so funny about the initials MTV?? “
I got the joke! (but I’m over 30, so that helps.)
HIE = MTV was the YouTube of the 80s.December 29, 2011 11:28 pm at 11:28 pm #840323Flatbush GuyMember
Torah Vodaath is a great Yeshiva. Period. I have chidren in the elementary department and my wife and I are extremely happy. Hopefully, this will carry into the High School as well. The english dept has a reputation of excellence and i heard that they are working to make the limudei kodesh better.December 30, 2011 12:30 am at 12:30 am #840324optimusprimeMember
Chofetz Chaim. A wonderful place with wonderful Rebbeim that will only elevate the level of yiddishkeit in your son.December 30, 2011 12:36 am at 12:36 am #840325
Since one poster using this account has already mentioned that he attends Torah Vodaas, I assume that was the “son” and you’re the “little bro”. So ask you’re “big bro”. If you’re the “big bro”, why are you even asking?December 30, 2011 1:07 am at 1:07 am #840326Adam885710Participant
There are very few high schools in Brooklyn that have a good English department. However, Yeshiva of Flatbush has a terrific English program along with good Hebrew studies.December 30, 2011 1:12 am at 1:12 am #840327
I don’t think the OP was considering a co-ed school.December 30, 2011 1:20 am at 1:20 am #840328Adam885710Participant
DaasYochid: There is no reason to speak in such a condescending manner when referring to co-ed schools. It is unfair to both the parents and kids who attend the school. You must respect each and every jew regardless of how religious they are. I have 3 sons that attend the school and all I can say is that it is a terrific all-around school. Please respect others!December 30, 2011 1:35 am at 1:35 am #840329
Having fun, troll?December 30, 2011 2:01 am at 2:01 am #840330IsometimesAgreeParticipant
I dont think DaasYochid was being condescending. he was just pointing out that the op had asked for a “heimish” school.
I think we would all agree that while Yeshiva of Flatbush may be a great school for the people it caters to, “heimish” it definitely isn’t.December 30, 2011 4:59 am at 4:59 am #840332
Thanks for having my back. You are, of course, correct.December 30, 2011 6:17 am at 6:17 am #840333commonsenseParticipant
Can anyone tell me about The Cheder?December 30, 2011 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm #840334
Why dont you answer my questions? Exactly what is TOO yeshivish? What makes something SHTARK litvish heimish as opopsed to shtark litvish or shatark heimish? Is it the amount of garlic in the cholent? Quite frankly, I have no idea what you mean, and I doubt you know what you mean either.December 30, 2011 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm #840335goody613Member
i know its not in brklyn but what type of yeshiva is phillie?December 30, 2011 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #840336
apashutayid: stop hocking, you know exactly what I mean.
Flatbushguy: As Far as i”m aware the limudei kodesh is very good at this point and it’s pretty hard to get inDecember 30, 2011 6:53 pm at 6:53 pm #840337
ya i am in YTV it’s my brother thats asking about it. he isn’t there so doesn’t know much.
flatbushguy: your kids went to the marine park branch or were always in kensington?December 31, 2011 11:39 pm at 11:39 pm #840338
Answer the question. If you can’t, just say, I don’t know.
The way I interpret your requirement, Yagdil Torah is the yeshiva you should look into, followed closely by Chasan Sofer.January 1, 2012 12:06 am at 12:06 am #840339
apushatayid: not such yeshivish places!!!January 1, 2012 4:12 am at 4:12 am #840340
But, they are NOT so yeshivish.
