Following a surge in registration, Yeshivas Lubavitch Tiferes Yisroel in Ramat Beit Shemesh hired Rabbi Mendy Marinovsky as an additional mashpia for the upcoming yeshiva year.
Shortly before Purim this year, a group of educators announced the establishment of Yeshivas Lubavitch Tiferes Yisroel. Geared for English speaking bochurim who wish to spend the year studying in Eretz Yisroel, it will be headed by menahel Rabbi Chaim Moss and Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Shimon Garbose. The Mashpi’im in the yeshiva will be long-time educators Rabbi Meir Levinger and Rabbi Elchonon Cohen.
Within a short amount of time, registration filled up, and many others are still on a waiting list, hoping to have a chance to join the yeshiva for its inaugural year. Seeing the increased interest, the hanhala decided to bring Rabbi Mendy Marinovsky as an additional Mashpia to join the team.
Rabbi Marinovsky grew up on shlichus in Houston TX, for Mesivta, Rabbi Marinovsky traveled to Michigan to study in the Detorit Mesivta under Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Leima Wilhelm and Mashpia Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Gourarie. “It was there that I gained a strong feeling for hiskashrus and darchei hachassidus,” he says.
For Zal, Rabbi Marinovsky studied in Yeshivas Chabad Cholon, a Yeshiva for Americans located in Eretz Yisroel. There, under the guidance of mashpia Rabbi Yosef Gurevitz and the rest of staff, he developed a strong passion for limud hachassidus and specifically hemshechim. He recalls that the superb education offered by the hanhala, coupled with the unique energy of learning in Eretz Yisroel, made him feel a personal connection to the Chassidus he was learning.
Rabbi Marinovsky taught in Oholei Torah Mesivta for the past 3 years. Rabbi Marinovsky was known for his ability to engage with the bochurim, create strong and meaningful relationships and help bochurim grow beyond their comfort zones.
When searching for an additional mashpia to teach Chassidus Biyun in the evenings, the hanhala of Tiferes Yisroel felt that Rabbi Marinovsky would be the perfect fit.
“I look forward to the opportunity Yeshivas Lubavitch Tiferes Yisroel provides, having personally experienced the added energy one gets from learning Torah and Chassidus in Eretz Yisroel,” Rabbi Marinovsky said. “More importantly, the mature atmosphere and strong staff per student ratio this yeshiva presents make it a unique and exciting opportunity for bochurim. It will enable us to deal with each bochur in a personal manner, tapping into the particular strengths of each Talmid, to help them develop their own personal relationships with the Rebbe and his teachings.”
“I am humbled by the opportunity, and sincerely daven to have the merit to see the bochrim flourish and grow,” he said.
