A new program in Eretz Yisroel for American teens will combine the study of Nigleh and Chassidus with a wide range of extracurricular and athletic activities.
The new program, named Machon Aharon, after the venerable mashpia Rabbi Aharon Eliezer Zeitlin a”h, will be led by his son Rabbi Heshy Zeitlin. Geared for 14-16-year-old boys, the program will offer a unique blend of learning together with Krav Maga lessons, swimming, agricultural work, and trips.
“Our objective in opening Machon Aharon is to create a warm, Chassidishe, homey environment for English-speaking students that will nurture their love of the Torah, Hashem, the Rebbe and each other,” Rabbi Zeitlin said. “It was created for boys who would gain from a more hands-on learning experience.”
The yeshiva program will be located in Ma’aleh Efrayim, a quiet yishuv in the scenic Yarden Valley in Eretz Yisrael. The serene setting lends a calm and relaxed atmosphere.
The bochurim will be guided and trained to learn the texts and gain the skills necessary to connect to the nigleh and Chassidus they are learning. The program will be open to only twenty five students to maximize the focus and attention given to each talmid.
“We designed the school for boys that need, in addition to diligent Torah study, a variety of creative outlets to channel their energy to strengthen themselves to study even better,” Rabbi Zeitlin said.
The Yeshiva will be providing 3-4 hours every day for athletic and agricultural activities, during which there will be constant stress on the bachurim’s learning and growth in these areas as well. The boys will also take part in the maintenance and upkeep of their living spaces and meal preparation. This will help foster a family environment, connect them with their physical surroundings, and teach them responsibility.
Join this unique program to experience this amazing opportunity to grow and learn in a warm and supportive environment.
