I would like to supplement my income with tutoring. What are the going rates. My brother told me in LA they are between $50-$70, which seems alot. Any feedback would be appreciated.
Halachically, things that are physically visible there is no need to mention, and that’s where common sense comes in. If it’s reasonably possible that after meeting her you may have changed your mind about that issue then they shouldn’t tell, otherwise they should.
MischiefMaker: I realize this, but you know the cost of living is very high in NYC as well.
I think you should actually start the other way around. Almost all of the more modern music is taken from non-Jewish sources. try Googling Ephraim Luft.
I spoke to my brother who is a financial director in a Yeshiva in the West Coast, where I went to school. Apparently salaries there are higher then mentioned here, and tuition is way higher. He said that Yeshivas (High Schools) charge between 14-18K/year, and day schools-cheiders charge between 8-14K/year.
The rabbeim there have been there for quite a while, but their salaries are definitely reasonable.
Baruch Hagever is the first that comes to mind, i.e., Crockodile Rock.
estherh: I’ve received a lot of insensitive comments, but yours tops them all. Unfortunately my wife and myself went through the same tzara twice. The second time, after we already knew, we went to the hospital to get finished. When we went to the delivery room, I told the nurse quietly that I wanted to tell her something important, then she tells me to go register first, I repeated 4 or five times that it was very important, but she wouldn’t listen. After I left she tells my wife to go to the monitor, and my wife tells her. She goes over to another nurse, and says loud enough that my wife could hear. They couldn’t tell us earlier.
The worst part was I was in the opposite situation. A young father, and his mother in law approach me, and very exuberantly tell me they’re new parents grand parents, and I responded with a mazel-tov. The new father starts pushing me to tell me what we had, I tried avoiding him, but really had no choice. Doing my best
I said that baruch hashem we have four healthy children, and this one didn’t make it. I patted him on the back and said, this one was a tikun. Their faces changed completely.
Asher1: I’m sure everyone here is discussing full time, otherwise I really can’t see any reason to complain. When I went to day school the Rabeim taught Limudei Kodesh in the morning to the older grades, and in the afternoon, taught the younger grades.
These are some great songs, maybe someone can make a list here, in order of the amount posted. I believe Rav Hutner came up with the nigun of Bilvavi, but I would have to verify that. My brothers kneighbor is Suky Berry, and he used to write nigunim for Rav Hutner.
This reminds me of an Uncle, whose wife sent him to the Yam (beach). When he came back his bathing suit was dry, so he responded he went to Yam HaTalmud.
I heard Tahoe is beautiful, but I assume there are some tzinius issues.
Well thanks for all the input. Let me add a few details:
1. I am a male,
2. The main position I’m considering is out of town,
3. I have both Limudei Kodesh qualifications, and professional qualifications as well – i.e., BA, MED, with lots of experience. This specific position demands both.
4. In no way shape or form will I take any position who pays any more then a week or two late. I’ve been through that before. I’m not working for Chesed. Numerous positions, I ask bluntly, do you pay on time? This one specifically, I’m a little concerned about being so bold. If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it.
5. I have no problem tutoring to supplement my income, but I do need to sleep at nights as well.
6. Gavra, thanks for mentioning Ramaz, I’ve seen some openings with them, but nothing plausible yet.
7. BPTotty – With the cost of living so high in NYC, how do Rabbeim survive, or are they supposed to be shonerers.
I was honestly expecting 60K+, but my brother mentioned to me at the Yeshiva he works in, the secular staff makes less then the limudei kodesh.
Hey, if you’re in LA, why not go camping to Sequoia and Yosemite. Sorry, don’t know about the minyans there.
I’d go for 4, and ask a respectable Rav what else to do.
Just keep away from facebook!
Some of the points mentioned here clearly will not get proper justice in a discussion forum.
This Shabbos I reviewed the three tshuvas. If I have some more time I will add some more info.
The words of Reb Moishe are, “I personally am Machmir, and a Ba’al Nefesh should be Machmir.” No, they are not excatly the same.
Actually Reb Moshe holds that CY IS a gezeira, not like the Pri Chadash. However he holds that the USDA supervision fulfils the requirements of the gezeira and is equivalent to CY, read the teshuvos in IM.
No, not exactly!
Thanks for posting!
Does Rav Belski have a written Tshuva about this?
Do you think Rav Belsky doesn’t know about these in full color parasites? Do you think none of our g’dolim and poskim, past and present, needed to read this book in order to know what to look for?
I know when I asked Rav Sheinberg he referred me to Rav Vai. This was years ago when Rav Sheinberg was holding in all of shas and poskim. Rav Revach who is as well an expert clearly says the same. These are the psakim of Rav Elyashiv as well. The shayla is not only halachic, it’s a matter of professional expertise.
I would put Bush Jr. quite close to the top, probably number two.
Tested only a few!
Oh, I got that in Kollel.
I’m sorry, I didn’t wait long enough, it’s slow to load, but there is that link at the top of the page.
Are you getting this link – http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/gallery/upgrade/index.php
If you’re putting 150 as the DOWN, at least by American standards of how much is generally put down, we are talking about one heckuva dira.
Prices in Jerusalem are well over the $150K range. Starting more like $300K. Outside of Jerusalem generally about $225K. A $150K downpayment might not be that much.
The classifieds link no longer works. If the webmasters need any help, I could definitely help with this.
Most forum software has an option for showing number of posts.
Just out of curosity. I heard that pharmacists pay quite well, and the ownly need a BA if I’m not mistaken. Haven’t seen that mentioned here in this thread.
This is a very depressing thread. It reminds me of my personal experience in Eretz Yisroel. I personally was planning on learning full time for far longer, however, a family member strongly persuaded me to teach in his Yeshiva Ketana, which is considered quite respectable in Eretz Yisroel. The Yeshiva was built for lower achieving students, but in reality the vast majority needed professional special ed. After asking two gedolim, I started college, BA, MEd, as well as a three year Learning Disability Evaluation program, and other courses. I’ve had various positions, most paid close to nothing, with other issues as well.
As someone else pointed out here. I think your best bet is finding something necessary without being overflooded. Off the tip of my tongue, possibly Clinical Psychology, Play Therapy.
I am looking more in the Chinuch area.
The classifieds link is not working!
OK, at least I got the term now, Head Hunter, ouch!
Real Estate Agent
My granddaughter Chagit
and what if I’m looking for a position in Chinuch? Your suggestion is interesting though, maybe you could provide me with more info.
No one forces you to do anything.
As I said, I’ve gotten out very reasonable so far but it’s easier said then done. If you live in the states, I guess you could send to public school. The reality is almost everyone pays for their children’s expenses in Eretz Yisroel, in our circle, although things are starting to change.
We have home day care, it pays app. 7500 shekels per month before expenses. Expenses are around 1500 shekels, and your charged taxes on 4500 shekels of the amount. The work is strenuous, 5 children, one can be your own, from 7:00-4:00, but the parents tend to bring the children closer to 9:00. You will need to take a class and get certified.
In the Litvishe circles the standard is 2/3 – girls side, 1/3 boys side, but there are always deviations. Parents like myself are pretty much forced into buying their children a dira, which is app. $225,000 and up in the newer out of town areas – Beitar, Beit Shemesh, Kiryat Sefer, Elad, etc. The kids may get part of mortgage themselves, so you can do the homework. I’ve married two, and so far have gone into heavy debt with far less then the amount you mentioned, which to me is outrageous in itself.
I believe his shiur is actually after shachris, but I could be wrong as well. He’s almost inpossible to get a hold of. With Rav Elyashiv you will need “protexia” to get into him.
I don’t know if Rav Mordechai Gross gives any regular shiurim, but he’s all over the place. He has numerous beis dins, and answers shailos in numerous places.
We are considering the new Gateshead. Does anyone know about this?
Do you have any specific Yeshiva in mind?
I came to Eretz Yisroel right after high-school, and went to a regular Israeli Yeshiva after a year.
Thanks Tzippi. The Israeli choice I’ve heard of, does seem somewhat complicated though, but never actually used them, since both of my married daughters married early, directly after high-school, now they may use them for some other training or something else. I am actually concerned for my third daughter who I would like to send to the US next year. So I’m looking for a Seminary in the US who will handle this, hopefully without any middlemen. Right now based on your advice, seems like so far the most likely from our side is Detroit, but I am still researching. I would really like to know what the total costs are, including everything, and after any grants or aid.
This daughter right now is in 11th grade, but will be 18, so she is in high-school now. Next year I would like to send her directly to Seminary though.
(ol)fabie: Please re-post in this thread.(/ol)
OK will do. I assume this is referring to the post regarding pell grants. Please let me know if I have violated any rules.
I wanted to know if most-some-any seminaries are eligible for Pell grants, Staff loans, other government programs, and any other sorts of aid.
Could someone provide contacts and tuition fees for at least Detroit and Cleveland, either public or by emailing me, thanks in advance!
“Detroit really sounds like it could fit the bill; unfortunately it hasn’t seen the growth it really deserves. Maybe this year, if it’s true that BYBP is closing…?”
Thanks for the response. She has been in small seminaries so far, and I prefer a close warmer environment, especially if there is good supervision. I just wonder how small is small though. Like one grade per class, or less then that. Oh how funny, I just saw a previous post 10 girls per class.
Boro Park is much more her style, since she’s used to Bnei Brak Geula type of environments, but on the other hand I assume there’s fewer distractions out of town.
Do you have any specific contact information, tuition costs, etc. I”m sure I have some contacts there, but I really can’t recall anyone off hand.
“Being an ex-Detroiter I know many of the staff members of the Detroit sem, they are all great but it is very small approx 10 girls.So not for someone wanting a major sem experience experience.There is a dorm/shared house and the community is wonderful.”
Maybe you can help.
