In the short time of the Yeshivas existence, we can attest with pride that the Yeshiva has been guided with an unprecedented amount of Siyata D'shmaya,particularly in regard to the Harbatzos Hatorahand the Chinuchof our beloved bachurim.
Please peruse the following with interest and care, where we will demonstrate in detail the necessity and purposefulness of this particular Yeshiva.We are certain that you will be inspired and become an outstanding supporter of this unique institution.
What is the purpose and vision of a Yeshiva?
A “Yeshiva” is virtualy a craftsmanship! It is a place where a bachur's personality takes form, a place where his character is finely tuned and a place where his traits are polished to a shine! Besides the davening and learning which are focal points of a “Yeshiva”, there is also concern that a bachur should mature into a successful adult, and all of which that entails. He must learn how to develop his character so that he can build and maintain successful relationships with people in his surroundings.
All this contributes to his eventual ability to build an Ehrliche Yiddishe home with strong values, based on our Mesorah. Our entire staff and faculty is geared toward encouraging and developing the above attributes in our precious Talmidim. Proper attention is also given to their material needs just as much as their Ruchniyos needs. All in all, the end goal is that they use the tools given to them to develop and enhance their personalities so that they grow into authentic Bnei Torah!
The concept of a Yeshiva
In The Past:
Historically, going back several centuries in Eastern Europe, the concept of a Yeshiva as a place where bachurim got together to study the Talmud didn't exist. The absence of the Yeshiva institution was purposeful. For one, the Gedolei HaRabbanim of that period deemed it unwise for students from different communities to mix, as this would cause a clash of the various contradictory minhagim that they would inevitably bring along with them from their home countries. As a result, the bachurim would get together with the local Rav, who would spend time learning with them. This arrangement was sufficient for many centuries.
With time, however, the "Chasam Sofer" with his holy vision decided that the time had come to establish a “Yeshiva”. A Yeshiva would be a Makom Torah based on strong values and principles; a place where boys would take leave of their families and hometown and join together to make a “Rischa doiraysa”. From there on, the idea of a Yeshiva spread all over Europe, especially in Hungary where the Yeshiva had a dramatic impact on the way that the Torah was transmitted. This resulted in an impressive rise in the quality of Talmidei Chachomim and a quantitative increase of Lomdei Torah, thereby securing the future of Klal Yisrael.
Fast-track many years forward, and in particular to the past decade or so, where the idea of a “Yeshiva” has adversely taken on a new connotation. It has become a place where a bachur is expected to spend his years until the time comes for him to go under the wedding canopy. Little thought is given as to what learning skills he has acquired throughout the years he spent in the Yeshiva. Moreover, when going through the application process, it is not a matter over which country the potential student has originated from; rather the main concern is if the bachur is “above average” or not; If the bachur can prove to be of high intellect and of an advanced learning caliber. In short, the faculty staff is on the lookout for bachurim that won't be a burden to the Yeshiva; a bachur who will cooperate, adhere to the rules and won't demand too much individual attention. The Yeshiva has more or less become an institution that is run in a systematical manner.
For example, in the past a Yeshiva invariably enrolled the academically adept student and a good portion of bachurim that required guidance and individualized attention. Today, there are unfair standards of only accepting the above average students, Since the weaker students are generally more demanding and in need of more patience; a skill in which the staff is commonly lacking. Parents and Mechanchim have long disaproved the fact that the Yeshiva of today is not the Yeshiva that once was, where the role of the Yeshiva was to build a bachur and encourage him to strive higher in Avodas Hashem. Today, the Yeshivas commonly engage in nitpicking for the best and brightest bachurim, all the while leaving the weaker bachurim at the wayside. And the “Average” bachurim don't fare much better either. They are commonly left to wait with uncertainty right up until the last minute for their fate to be decided. The decision is often dependent on various outside considerations, many times when the yeshiva simply didn't manage to fill up with the “cream of the crop”. Read more
In Yeshivas Radashitz we are proud to say that we don't discriminate on a bachur's learning ability. Whoever has the cheshek to learn or might need assistance in igniting their cheshek, is welcomed in with open arms. With this policy we are commemorating and continuing the way of the "Chasam Sofer" and his Talmidim Zy”a. And with the help of Hashem Yisborach we will continue to succeed and hopefully trail-blaze a new way of catering to our precious bachurim and their families.
