I’m in 9th grade and go to a modern orthodox co-Ed high school and am looking to transfer to a real yeshiva in the northeastern part of this country. It has to have decent English studies, otherwise my parents will say no. All responses are appreciated.April 10, 2013 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #977509writersoulMember
I assume you’re a boy (by your use of the word “yeshiva”- correct me if I’m wrong).
What do you mean by “decent”? I have a feeling that people on here and, say, your parents may have different meanings for the word…April 10, 2013 6:55 pm at 6:55 pm #977510
Enough to be able to go to college. Because my parents may want me to go to college but I want to learn to be a rabbi and yes, obviously I’m a boy. Thanks for respondingApril 10, 2013 7:25 pm at 7:25 pm #977511playtimeMember
I think you may want to look into Yesodei Hatorah in Queens or Yesodei Yisrael in Monsey. They are Yeshiva high school affiliates of Touro College.April 10, 2013 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #977512🐵 ⌨ GamanitParticipant

While it could be that he’s a troll, it could just be that he was looking for a forum of people who might know the answer to his question and therefore created an account.
Even if he is a troll, this is a question I’ve wanted to know the answer to for a long time, so…April 10, 2013 10:43 pm at 10:43 pm #977514
while I am not a troll, I came and signed up for this because i saw that anyone can post stuff and get responses from good, frum people. I had a question and haven’t had time to really look at any other posts. Sorry for the confusion. and thank you talmud for the help.April 10, 2013 11:01 pm at 11:01 pm #977515Sam2Participant
Your parents might be okay with MTA (YU’s high school). Ner Yisrael also has not-terrible academics.April 10, 2013 11:01 pm at 11:01 pm #977516VogueMember
I would say to check out any of the chofetz chaim yeshivas.April 10, 2013 11:37 pm at 11:37 pm #977517rationalfrummieMember
I would definitely suggest looking into chafetz Chaim in queens. It seems exactly like what you’re looking for- good secular studies as well as more emphasis on Gemara and other limudei kodesh.April 11, 2013 12:21 am at 12:21 am #977518
Sam2, thank you for the response. MTA isn’t for me but Ner Yisroel could be considered
Vogue, I’ve been thinking the same thing for a while. I know people that go to chofetz Chaim’s as opposed to other yeshivas because they have good secular studies and are good yeshivos.
Rational frummie- are you sure that is true? While I hear it is a wonderful place, I hear they don’t have the greatest secular studies and that other chofetz Chaim’s have better secular studies. Am I wrong? It’s only because that is something my family requires. I’m sure it’s a great place!April 11, 2013 12:29 am at 12:29 am #977519rationalfrummieMember
well torah lishmah, I honestly am not sure about how good the limmudei chol are at chofetz chaim, but the bachurim are great, the derech halimmud is solid, the rebbeim are top-notch, and they really teach you how to learn and how to teach so you can go out in klal yisroel and make an impact.
Judging from your name, if Torah is your only concern, I would definitely go there. However, if college is also a consideration and a family value, maybe consider MTA as sam2 said. Or how about a hebrew academy in montreal, cleveland, new york, etc. Ner Yisroel lets bachurim go to college at night (apparently the R”Y said its okay a while back and thats the way it is).April 11, 2013 12:36 am at 12:36 am #977520
Thank you everyone for your responses. I’m definitely gonna consider everythingOctober 3, 2013 1:17 am at 1:17 am #977521yeshivabochurguyMember
Ive heard that Ohavei Torah in Riverdale has the top secular studies in the realm of normal yeshivosOctober 5, 2013 7:32 pm at 7:32 pm #977522jewishfeminist02Member
What is a “real yeshiva”?
