Hi I am from Lakewood new jersey and my son is looking to go Rabbi Rubins yeshiva in great neck Long Island. I haven’t heard anything about the yeshiva, does anyone know anything about it? Whats the crowd like and the learning there?
why not call the yeshiva and ask them? why not visit?
I love these “needle in the haystacks questions”? Are there any CR members who have children or relatives or friends who go there?
It’s a Yeshiva for Sefardim, as far as I know. They have a dorm? Great Neck is a dangerous place for an unsupervised bochur.
Great Neck is on of the safest areas on the Island (and the violent crime rate is one of the lowes tin NYS. It has lots of shuls, kosher restaurant and fast food places within a short drive, and lots of parks, golf courses and recreational areas. I’m assuming that the yeshiva will have some mashgiach ruchani for the bochurim in the dorm but otherwise, its up to the parents to provide “supervision”.
I have a few friends who are currently learning there. It is a predominantly sefardi yeshiva but there are some ashkenazim as well. If you have any questions I can try and answer them or I’d be happy to forward them to those actually learning there.
