My friends and I want to go to the Mir for the summer. How do we go about getting an apartment? What should we bring with us in terms of clothing? What should we bring with us in terms of cooking necessities?January 15, 2013 6:26 pm at 6:26 pm #919974WIYMember
Stop trolling you asked this about a week or 2 ago.January 15, 2013 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm #919975blackhatwannabeParticipant
True…but I still dont know how and where to get an apartmentJanuary 15, 2013 7:07 pm at 7:07 pm #919976em0616Member
First you have to apply, and get accepted to the Mir. And if you are asking on the forums here, (with all respect) sounds like you would neither belong or fit there.January 15, 2013 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm #919977yeshivasemMember
With all do respect to em0616 this is a fine forum for you to get information about Mir stuff. You probably do not need to apply to mir before you come. To set up an apartment your best bet is to contact gershon Levy who helps buchurim with diras his number (if allowed to post) is 050-419-3319 if you need any other help feel free to ask on this forumJanuary 15, 2013 9:15 pm at 9:15 pm #919978em0616Member
I just think that blackhatwannabe, should first research if the Mir is the right place for him.
If you are only coming for the Summer, it’s not the place to go. If you are not from an yeshiva, that feeds its bochorim into the Mir, you will not fit in, and will have little socially there. e.g. Bochorim that learned in yeshivas that feed only to Brisk or R’ Kaplan, etc. will not find their place in the Mir.
Although you can come before applying, not everyone gets accepted. You have to have letters of recommendation from your previous yeshivas, and go through a Farher.
And once admitted, good luck finding a place to sit. The bulletin boards there always have ads for empty beds in diras.
Also, be aware that the Mir is lately enforcing that bochorim even in private diras, (not in the dorm) do not have laptops, or internet connections.
