Should they have dorm counselors who can be not much older then them, and sometimes VERY immature and baybyish.March 14, 2019 2:28 pm at 2:28 pm #1696175
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.March 14, 2019 2:28 pm at 2:28 pm #1696183
They should have someone who answers to the rosh yeshiva. Bochurim shouldnt snitch on one another. Dorm counselor should.March 14, 2019 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #1696327
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 elseMarch 15, 2019 6:47 am at 6:47 am #1696460

Today, with the easy availability of shmutz, dorm counselors are a must.March 15, 2019 3:27 pm at 3:27 pm #1696691March 16, 2019 10:46 pm at 10:46 pm #1696850
“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.March 17, 2019 1:33 pm at 1:33 pm #1697118
“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’.March 18, 2019 12:51 pm at 12:51 pm #1697705
Nowadays, it is needed for bochurim aged 19-20. A few bad apples can turn a yeshiva into a drug rehab.
