Should they have dorm counselors who can be not much older then them, and sometimes VERY immature and baybyish.
In essence s dorm counselor is a mashgiach.
If a bachur needs a mashgiach in the bais medrash,(which they do), he surly needs one in the dorm.
They should have someone who answers to the rosh yeshiva. Bochurim shouldnt snitch on one another. Dorm counselor should.
Dorm counselors are always buzzkills.
No they definitely should not have dorm counselors When a Bochur is in beis medresh he’s old enough to make the right decisions. And the ones that don’t r the miyut and they shouldn’t ruin it for everyone else
Mr alphabet, ur screen name a-z said that u need a dorm counsler even if others dont
I don’t know about him, but I like my food.
Today, with the easy availability of shmutz, dorm counselors are a must.
“should they have dorm counselors who can be not much older then them, and sometimes VERY immature and baybyish.”
No. They should have mature, responsible, dorm counselors instead.
“Today, with the easy availability of shmutz, dorm counselors are a must.”
Not true. A bochur can get all that “shmutz” whether there is a dorm counselor or not. Sometimes a dorm counselor is a responsible person that does a good job, but more often than not the dorm counselor is immature and babyish, looking for kicks by thinking they can ‘control’ the younger guys. They are worthless in that regard. When I was in mesivta all the dorm counselor did was soak people that were wearing shorts in the hallway. He did nothing to stop bochrim from getting ‘shmutz’.
Nowadays, it is needed for bochurim aged 19-20. A few bad apples can turn a yeshiva into a drug rehab.
