I hear alot of good things from Yeshiva Torah Vodaath but then again you are talking about in town out of Brooklyn I hear great things about Sharei Torah in QueensJanuary 11, 2010 12:01 am at 12:01 am #672812
CHOFETZ CHAIM FOR THE WIN!!! yeshiva tiferes yisrael in brooklyn on avenue l and east 35 in flatbust is an excellent yeshiva in terms of limudei kodesh and chol.January 11, 2010 2:13 am at 2:13 am #672814
You cant believe every piece of loshon hara that you hear it isnt good for you or the people around you and even if it true about hte smoking that doesnt mean anything about the Yeshiva there are other yeshivos where there is smoking and it is still a “yeshivish atmosphere”January 11, 2010 2:23 am at 2:23 am #672815jphoneMember

not to sound like a broken record…but honestly if you want the best balance between torah and mussar with a pretty good limudei chol department choose chofetz chaim (yty)January 11, 2010 9:35 am at 9:35 am #672818PosterMember
How about Novaminsk, really serious boys, great products come out of there.January 11, 2010 10:07 pm at 10:07 pm #672821bptParticipant
Picking a HS is like shidduchim; references are a good starting point, but to really know if you have a good match, you need a face-to-face. Then, its Syata Dishmaya till graduation day, because HS is make it or break it, and do-overs are real costly ($ lost time and eaten kishkes)
When we were in the deciding stage, once we had the list down to 3 choices we did the following:
1) Went to see the school at lunch and dismissal (to see the boys in their natural environment and
2) Went to the school melaveh malka (to see the parent body)
Again, nothing is a guarrantee, but where hishtadlus ends, syata d’shmaya (hopefully!) picks up.
And like a shidduch, all look promising, all have their pro and cons, but you can only pick one. Pick the one you feel is the best fit, and commit youself to working till you drop to make it work. Them, pray like your pants are on fire. That usually helps, even if you somehow missed something.

One can travel from Flatbush to KGH in Queens faster than many parts of Boro Park.
Is Queens really considered “out of town”?January 12, 2010 1:51 am at 1:51 am #672824chesednameParticipant
apply to a few as the one YOU want might not want YOU.January 12, 2010 4:05 am at 4:05 am #672825
so if i said chofetz chaim didnt want you…youd apply?January 12, 2010 4:29 am at 4:29 am #672826mravenMember
ya im not a fan of bombmaniacs name but im familiar with many rebbeim at the chofetz chaim in brooklyn or “tiferes yisrael” as its called and i know many of the bochurim and it truly seems to be from all accounts as good a yeshiva as it gets in almost every respect…altho picking a mesivta from a blog does not necessarily seem like the smartest idea but thats just my own opinion lolJanuary 12, 2010 6:09 am at 6:09 am #672827
youre absolutely right no one should pick a yeshiva based on a blog however there is no reason not to at least check it out just because you saw it on a blog…January 13, 2010 4:03 am at 4:03 am #672831
No one is saying to go there because you saw it here, here is just ideas make sure to do research before applyingJanuary 13, 2010 5:12 am at 5:12 am #672832pookieMember
