“We give students skills, we teach them how to learn a Gemara, and we try at the same time to ignite the inner spark — the fire, the neshama, the drive, the connection, the simcha and the ahavah — helping them not only to have skills and knowledge but to be happy and well-adjusted, with good middos and ahavas Hashem — who have a connection with their rebbeim and feel the warmth that the Yeshiva feels towards them — to establish a rebbe-talmid connection — which is so crucial for today.”

“I’ve watched boys in our community grow and go on to yeshivos out of town. But as we have grown as a community, it’s time for us to have our own Yeshiva... My wife and I are very excited about the prospect of sending our own son to Yeshiva here in Cincinnati.“
