Hi I am a yeshiva bochur looking into different options where to go for beis midrash next zman. I have been in Israel the past couple years in yeshiva there. I am now 21 and looking to come back to the states soon. Does Yeshivas Ohr Reuven in Monsey have bocharim my age? What type of bocurim go there? Thanks. Also is it the type of place that would be open to my going to college one or two nights a week?September 12, 2010 5:18 am at 5:18 am #696322iluvtorahMember
Ohr Reuven’s Rosh HaYeshiva, Rabbi Bezalel Rudinsky shlita, is speaking on the Lower East Side tomorrow at a Kinnus Teshuva, 5PM at The Bialystoker Synagogue.September 12, 2010 3:16 pm at 3:16 pm #696323aries2756Participant
Reb Bezalel is of the opinion that it is a mitzvah for a man to be mepharnes his own family. The Yeshiva I believe runs a program with an online college. The man is an amazing talmid chochom and there is a lot you can learn from him both in Torah and midos. You shosuld definitely check into it.September 12, 2010 4:22 pm at 4:22 pm #696324
Thank you aries, do you know though if there are bochurim my age there or most are younger or kollel already? It seems like most bochurim 21-22 range are in Eretz Yisroel yeshivos having done beis midrash in America first.September 12, 2010 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm #696325aries2756Participant
Yeshivabochur, age is just a number! When you are in a warm environment like that of this yeshiva, you are a chabura of talmidim and if you are a year older or a year younger than someone else, it really doesn’t matter. Go check it out for yourself. The z’man has already started, so take a ride, walk in and have a seat. Feel the ruach and take in the atmosphere and see if you fit in.September 12, 2010 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #696326popa_bar_abbaParticipant

I used to think your user name was meant to be ironic, after reading your post I see it’s ironic in a totally different way.September 14, 2010 8:20 am at 8:20 am #696331ramateshkolianMember

Rabbi Rudinsky, the Mishkan Betzalel and Hiluchei HaDfa is a gaon betorah and gives shiur in a wide array of Masechtos, including a Kodshim shiur b’iyun at his shul, one of the only rabbonim to do this in this area, other than Rabbi Shlomo Einhorn in Manhattan. He knows Toras ha kulo and transmits this derech to his talmidim, emphasizing Nach, Chumash, and Machshava alongside Gemara B’Iyun and Bekius.September 19, 2010 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #696336haaallloMember
Yeshivos Ohr rueven is by far the warmest yeshiva around, the yeshiva has the most carrying rabbiem and its a place were all the guys call it a second home. In yeshiva the concept of “shtultz” does not exist regardless if one guy is 25 and the other is merely 14 it doesnt matter there still exists a strong friendship between them. The yeshiva is led by the esteemed Rosh hayeshiva rav betzalel Rudinsky along with Rabbi brodie rabbi bamburger Rabbi medetzky and the most amazing reabbiem possible- ask all happy parents baaal habetim kollel guys and the bachorim they will tell you how much they love yeshiva. Join in the Ohr Rueven Family we can’t wait to have you for more info and shiurim visit http://www.ohrreuven.com/ .
