Hey, what a great idea for a yeshiva!

Just found out there’s a yeshiva in LA that’s doing what YM has been doing for the last two years:  homeschooling in the afternoon, but starting each day with a full limudei kodesh (Jewish studies, including gemara) curriculum in a real yeshiva setting.

More details (full press release) here.

I’m so relieved to see that I’m not crazy:  the stated goals of this yeshiva are to make Jewish education affordable, while tailoring the general-studies curriculum to fit each boy individually.

Why doesn’t every city have something like this?!?!???

You can also read more Jewish homeschool related posts on the Orthonomics blog.

  1. Chaim Tropper's little sister Menucha was one of my best friends until grade 4. Nice to see what he's up to these days. Also the picture including his father in the poster.
