This upcoming school year, United Lubavitcher Yeshiva of Ocean Parkway is opening a paid teachers’ internship/training program. Weekly staff training is an important part of ULYOP’s success and the yeshiva is looking for top talented individuals interested in the shlichus of chinuch who also want to hone their skills before walking into a classroom fulltime.
The program will be directed and taught by ULYOP principals, Rabbi Yaacov Sebbag and Rabbi Shmuel Turk with a third veteran Mechanech being announced shortly.
“This is an unprecedented opportunity to get hands-on training in a real live classroom. It’s not just theoretical learning, it’s a chance to practice and master the skills of a mechanech before diving into a classroom”, explained Rabbi Sebbag, principal of ULYOP.
