My son is in 12th grade and is about to start looking into beis medrash for next year. I am new to the whole exprience and dont know what to do. I know the yeshiva will help but i wanna get my own feel for the spectrum first. What are the best yeshivas for a mainstream that will possibly be ending up in college? What the deal with yeshivos in e”y+November 22, 2015 2:50 am at 2:50 am #1161327

Is that a college?November 22, 2015 4:45 am at 4:45 am #1161334
I’d definitely suggest that your son speak to his rebbe regarding what he thinks. Rebbeim, especially 12th grade rebbeim, know what the options are and, more importantly, what might be a good option for your son.
As for my suggestion, I know of some guys who went from yesodei to orach chaim and did very well. I know nothing of your son, though.November 22, 2015 5:56 pm at 5:56 pm #1161335
The place that split from Mercaz is called Toras Chaim. It is a fantastic yeshiva for bochurim who really want to learn.November 22, 2015 5:58 pm at 5:58 pm #1161336
Rabbi Senter’s Yeshiva, Aderes Hatorah is another awesome choice. It is located very close to yeshivas Mir Yerushalayim and it has a great college program within the yeshiva.November 22, 2015 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #1161337
I would suggest looking into http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/yeshivas-ohr-reuven.November 22, 2015 10:09 pm at 10:09 pm #1161338
Tomo was a split from Beis.November 23, 2015 12:29 am at 12:29 am #1161339
If he is in Yesodei Yeshurun, then they have a beis midrash Ohr Hachaim. Many of the bochrim will go to Lander College or Queens College at night and go to Eretz Yisroel for a year or two when they graduate.
ToMo is another great yeshiva that some of the bochrim go to. ToMo has a college arrangement with Execelsior College (I don’t know the details) and others will go back to America to Landers, Ner Yisroel, or Queens College.
Another place some bochrim go to (albeit not many) is Kerem B’Yavneh, also a great yeshiva. The yeshiva gives a BTL after 3 years, but most bochrim who go back to America to college will go to YU, Ner Yisroel, or Landers.December 28, 2015 12:59 am at 12:59 am #1161340
Can someone tell me more about to mo. The level of learning, rebbeim,type of people who go there ect.December 28, 2015 3:53 am at 3:53 am #1161341
Tomo is a great place. I highly recommend it. Very serious guys and top notch Rabbeim. Rabbi Meiselman is brilliant and is involved with each student.
A lot of Yesodei guys go there for one or two years then go back to Ohr HaChaim/Landers for college though Touro. Tomo’s credits are easily transferable to Touro.August 2, 2016 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #1161342
Can someone recommend a Beis Medrash in the NYC vicinity that has a dormitory and let me know what the expected cost would be? Thanks
