As a parent I am very happy to welcome home my sons who went to EY 6 months ago. They come back to chutz l’aretz with plans for learning with chavusahs already in place.March 27, 2019 4:08 pm at 4:08 pm #1703184
Make sure to have a schedule. Being bored isn’t good. A commitment to make minyan everu day and learn after davening should be made.March 27, 2019 4:08 pm at 4:08 pm #1703186
Not many have the experience of being in EY for Pesach. If you can find meals, go for it. There’s a lot to see in EY. Take advantage by going to places you’ve never been.March 27, 2019 4:14 pm at 4:14 pm #1703194PrinceParticipant
My rebbi when he was a bachur asked Rav Nosson Tzvi Finkle if he should go to the airport to greet his parents because there is prust, Reb Nosson told him to stop being a baby and go to the airport (with a smile and pinched his cheeks) moral of the story is don’t be to righteous. As well going home creates huge opportunities for growth, your gonna be challenged in areas that tour usually not challenged with (kibad av, learnings gonna be different) if someone succeeds bein hazmanom he’s showed himself exactly what he’s made of, something with isn’t really shown in the walls of a yeshiva.March 27, 2019 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #1703174
For some, their first BH home is very hard to recover from, when they return to EY. New goyish music playing in the car, old friends ask to go to movies, sports games. Some old friends could be into worse things. I’m not going to say what to do, but OP has legitimate concerns.March 27, 2019 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #1703265shtarkyid247Participant
thank you for addressing this topic, ive been struggling with this issue as well. in the end i’m going home since kibud av ve aim and my parents haven’t seen me in a almost a year.March 28, 2019 9:19 am at 9:19 am #1703372rationalParticipant
Go home, check it out, make it happen, wrap it up, l’chaim, vort, wedding after shvuos, come back for Elul, she can parade in Ramat Eshkol while you shteig away. No worries, life is easy. The kibbud av should bring in a nice monthly check. Makes Pesach in Flatbush almost worthwhile.
