Rabbi Chananya Kramer is our Menahel, and he comes with a wealth of experience in teaching Mesivta bochurim. Rabbi Kramer has served as a Rebbe at Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim in Queens since 2008. There, he became a legendary teacher, satisfying each student’s individual intellectual appetite, and connecting to them with his magnetic personality and palpable concern for the needs of each talmid. He also holds administrative positions at several other youth-related Mosdos. Rabbi Kramer sees an incredible opportunity to help bring FTI – already a fast growing yeshiva – to a whole new level, and turn it into a premier Yeshiva which will positively impact the community at large as well. Rabbi Kramer is married to Hindy (nee Luban) and they have 5 children.
