Do you know an english speaking yeshiva in beth shemesh? I’m also looking for one in mea shearim but I am almost sure there is nothing there.

what type of yeshiva? (mesifta/bm/kollel/modern/yeshivish/inbetween/)April 20, 2013 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm #947776
I prefer a yeshivish yeshiva. The best is a haredi (not modern) one.April 21, 2013 1:38 am at 1:38 am #947777ImanonovParticipant
There is the Yeshiva Gedola of Bet Shemesh. Rosh Yeshiva is Rav Holland and Rabbi Roberg. They have American and English bachurim. Their American office is 151 St. Nicholas Avenue, Lakewood NJ 08701April 21, 2013 1:53 am at 1:53 am #947778jewjew123Member
You can try Nesivas Ahron-it’s in Meah Sharim. My friend went there and really enjoyed his time there.April 21, 2013 2:13 am at 2:13 am #947779
Can you (jewjew and imanonov) tell me more about those yeshivoths?
I can’t find information online.April 21, 2013 4:38 am at 4:38 am #947780
Chareidi institutions don’t usually have websites unless they are kiruv type schools. Try ohr somayach. Its more kiruvy, but definitely chareidi. It will be less stressful of a jump/ transition into the chareidi world from public school. Regardless of the hashkafa of the family you grew up in, there are a lot of things that frum jews who lead somewhat sheltered lives do differently than you would be used to in a public school. Trust me, I know.
If you can’t understand this sentence, then seek a more kiruv style yeshiva.
Frum yidden should aspire to daven to the aibishter with so much kavana that they feel that their neshama was uplifted during their davening and they would not notice anything else going on around them, chas ve’shalom.
Just so you know, this sentence was written in more yeshivish type of language, which is a mixture of yiddish and english. The non-kiruvy style yeshivas require you to have a stronger command if the yiddish language in order to blend in more socially. Also, there are people who are not baalei teshuvas who learn at ohr somayach as well because they have never learned gemara before.
Hatzlacha!April 21, 2013 1:59 pm at 1:59 pm #947781
Thanks vogue. I don’t think you can judge someone on the understanding of one sentence but more on what they really are inside.
Anyway, thank you.
Jewjew and imanonov: Can you tell me more about those yeshivoths?April 21, 2013 3:32 pm at 3:32 pm #947783playtimeMember
Vogue- really smart.
am23- “I don’t think you can judge someone on the understanding of one sentence but more on what they really are inside.”
It does not indicate where your soul is, but you want to be able to understand what people in you yeshiva are saying.April 21, 2013 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm #947784
That was why I posted it. I did not post it to be judgmental, it you understood the sentence then I would say to go ahead.April 21, 2013 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #947785
I understand it. But I am looking for a beginners yeshiva, not a BT yeshiva since I have some knowledgeApril 21, 2013 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm #947786
Check out the ohr somayach website. They have a ton of different programs. Many baalei teshuva have knowledge.April 21, 2013 9:30 pm at 9:30 pm #947787
I’m not a BT, I was raised religiously. But instead of going to a yeshiva, I went to law school.
Anyway, thank you Vogue. I already know Ohr Somayach, I am looking for others yeshivoth, especially in beth shemesh or mea shearim.April 21, 2013 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm #947789
ok, ok, calm down. I thought you were still in high school. I am sorry if I offended you.April 21, 2013 9:43 pm at 9:43 pm #947790BronyParticipant
out of curiosity: why are you choosing a yeshiva based on location?April 22, 2013 12:17 am at 12:17 am #947791
No problem vogue.
Brony: I know Beth Shemesh and mea shearim pretty well. I like the community.April 22, 2013 4:08 am at 4:08 am #947792jewjew123Member
Hey, I once asked a Shal-Umeshiv at Nesivos Ahron to explain what’s the purpose of the yeshiva. He told me that it’s mostly for guys that went to Machon Yaakov or Machon Shlomo(Baal Teshuva professionals) that need to take the next step. I believe they base their learning mehalech on R’ Yaakov Friedman’s yeshiva in Beitar.April 22, 2013 10:03 pm at 10:03 pm #947793ImanonovParticipant
Sorry I didn’t answer earlier.
The Yeshiva I mentioned in Beth Shemesh is a Yeshiva Gedola and definitely not for beginners.April 22, 2013 11:20 pm at 11:20 pm #947794chofetzchaimMember
