I’m looking for a mesivta IN Brooklyn to send my son to. A good litvish yeshiva with a decent English department and not so so yeshivish (greeced). Please only positive and no negative. ANY SUGGESTIONSMarch 5, 2010 4:19 am at 4:19 am #681273Y.W. EditorKeymaster
Perhaps you can explain this.
Just a few minutes ago you posted the following:
“I’m studying for the chemistry regent it’s sooooooo hard”
So you are studying for regents, but have a son going to Mesivta?

Was wondering the same. But I think he once explained that his son and himself post under the same username. Well wait and see…

Maybe he is studying for his GED? Cant force your so into a mesivta with a good english department if you have no diploma yourself, can you?March 5, 2010 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm #681280tomim tihyeMember
Put him in a nice yeshiva for Hebrew and set him up with a private tutor or two for English. Otherwise, something may go.March 5, 2010 5:05 pm at 5:05 pm #681281
Look into Torah Vodaas. Have heard from parents of high school students that the english department is “pretty good” and “not bad” (their words, not mine).
You limited your request to Brooklyn. If you are willing to expand a little, I have heard that Mesivta Yesodei Yeshurun in Kew Gardens Hills (Queens) has a top flight English department, is Yeshivish but definitely not “greeced” and is most certainly a Litvish clientele.March 5, 2010 5:24 pm at 5:24 pm #681282Just-a-guyMember
What does this “greeced” term that I’ve seen show up here in the last few days mean?March 5, 2010 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #681283
According to my sources “greeced” is another way of “farfrumt”.
over the top yeshivish.March 5, 2010 5:47 pm at 5:47 pm #681284JotharMember
“Greeced” is a variant of “greased”, a reference to the common misconception of yeshiva guys as having greasy (as opposed to clean) hair.March 5, 2010 5:56 pm at 5:56 pm #681285
If you’re willing to expand your net just a bit wider than Brooklyn, I can recommend three schools on Long Island that impressed us when we were looking for a school for our son:
Mesivta Ateres Ya’akov (“South Shore”)

You started another thread about a month ago and concluded it by saying that you had basically made your decision and would elaborate later. (see http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/mesivtas) What happened now that you started another thread?March 5, 2010 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #681287
I basically did make my decision. I am probably sending to Torah vodaath. I have heard many great things
about it. I heard that The Hebrew and English department are Top notch, which in todays day is very rear to find A yeshiva with a great Hebrew and English department; that’s why I chose itMarch 5, 2010 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm #681288
So then why this thread? Having second thoughts?

I forgot about that threAdMarch 5, 2010 6:52 pm at 6:52 pm #681290
That didn’t answer the question.
If you made up your mind a month ago, why start a new thread today?
Or are you having second thoughts about your choice?

I’m not having second thoughtsMarch 5, 2010 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm #681292smartcookieMember
I guess he wants to see which CR members will be in his son’s yeshiva!March 5, 2010 7:29 pm at 7:29 pm #681293
I’m not having second thoughts
OK, so then why the new thread?
