Anybody know anything about Rabbi Robert’s Yeshiva in Teaneck NJ? What kind of crowd, the hashkafos, etc?
Lots of my relatives go there. Very nice guys. I know he marry’s them off young. He’s also into working/learning. Not sure of all the details.
I know he marry’s them off young.
mepal: Not too loud. AZ may throw a tantrum.
Nah, he’ll never come to this thread. It doesn’t say ‘shidduchim’ in the name 😉
chaverim – AZ isn’t against marrying the boys off young. He never once said that. He agrees that marrying the boys off young will help the age gap. Also, I have heard that Rabbi Roberts assists his Talmidim during dating, gives Hadrocha, etc. That’s a very inportant fact to consider. On the other thread – people kept saying that the boys can’t date young because they are immature. Well, here’s a Rosh Hayeshiva encouraing his Bochurim to date young. And also making sure that they are prepared for marriage.
How can the boys be dating young if the girls don’t date untill they’re at least 19?
shaatra, I meant 19 (rarely), 20, 21… Not stalling till the boy’s 23, 24.
The crowd is normal yeshivish. The R”Y has the boys, if you know what I mean. The learning is not so intense. But they’re great boys. Nothing to do with boys not knowing how to learn AT ALL.
Any other specifics you want to know?
are the boys openminded, wordly yeshivish or farfrumt yeshivish?
So then the girls should start dating younger. We date in 12th grade
shaatra: I agree with you completely.
Thanks. That’s how it works in my circles.
shhhh. AZ might be listening.
Belev Echad, I would NOT classify the boys there ‘farfrumt’. Especially not the bachurim. I would consider them more ‘worldyly yeshivish’. Are you looking for a bachur to go there or for someone married-the kollel part?
I am wondering if anyone can tell me about the yeshiva from the marreid/kollel aspect. thanks
Rabbi Roberts is a genuine and nice man that cares for each individual. The guys are down to eart yeshivish.
I dont know Rabbi Roberts but I know his brother. If he is anything like his brother than I would agree that he is most likely a genuinely nice sincere caring man and I would guess the bachurim are yeshivish but worldy and down to earth
Do Boys / men go to college after leaving this Yeshiva ?
