The Mesivta and Bais Medrash talmidim enjoyed our annual shabbaton to the Chofetz Chaim Yeshiva in Queens, NY on shabbos Parshas Tazria-Metzora.
After a Friday afternoon enjoying famous New York kosher pizza in Brooklyn, and B-ball in the gym at the Rabbinical Seminary of America (RSA), they got the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in an intense yeshiva environment of over 500 talmidim.
We spent a wonderful, ruach-filled shabbos with the bochurim and Rebbeim of Chofetz Chaim. It was an honor to learn from both Roshei Yeshiva: Rav Dovid Harris and Rav Akiva Grunblatt, who shared private audiences with FTI.
The weekend would not have been complete without the annual treat of Olympic Shwarma before the drive home to Cherry Hill. Until next year…
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.
