The JEC’s Rav Teitz Mesivta Academy has earned accolades for many accomplishments over its 60+ year history, but the feature that consistently sets the yeshiva apart is the renowned warmth and lifelong relationships formed between its rebbeim and talmidim.
Preparations for their recent trimester exams illustrated that enviable benefit beautifully as rebbeim availed themselves to students during a study session designed to precede the scheduled gemara exams. Students took advantage of the time, during which refreshments were served and rebbeim circulated between the tables, and had an opportunity to both review with their peers just ahead of the exams,as well as ask their rebbeim anything.
Both students and teachers were thrilled with the opportunity for the extra time and special one on one attention. It also relaxed many a nervous student, especially the ninth graders, for whom this was their first high school exam experience.
“What a pleasure it was watching our students teaching each other in small groups as they took ownership of their learning while sharing it with others,” said Rabbi Ami Neuman, principal of the RTMA division.
“This is yet another example of how together, as our mission states, we live AboveTheCode. Guided by the Torah, we passionately pursue excellence through engagement, reflection and growth.”
