Rabbi Yitzchok Shmidman comes to us as our new Boarding Student Mashgiach and Rebbe from Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim in Queens. Most recently, he was a Rebbe in Yeshivas Mayan Hatorah and Yeshivas Zichron Aryeh teaching Gemara and Mussar.
Rabbi Shmidman is a highly skilled mentor and has much experience helping boys balance school, family, and social and yiddishkeit obligations in a healthy and productive way. In fact, he has been mentoring boys for 10 years already, despite his relative young age, both as a volunteer and in official capacities.
Rabbi Shmidman is married to Hindy (nee Max) and has two sons, Ahron and Mordechai Boruch. We look forward to benefiting from all that he has to offer the Yeshiva and our talmidim.
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.
