Recruiting Season in Full Swing with Two Open Houses, a Shabbaton, and Several School Visit Days
FTI's recent local Open House was a tremendous success. The room was packed with families who had heard about FTI and how our programs produce incredible results and very happy students and parents. Rabbi Davidowitz, Rabbi Juni, and Rabbi Kramer presented the Yeshiva's unique approach to chinuch habanim, which seemed to resonate very well with those in attendance as evidenced by the large number of applications the Yeshiva has received for next year's incoming 9th grade.
FTI also hosted a New York Open House in Lawrence which was equally well received. We are very thankful to Malki and Sruli Wolfson for graciously opening up their home for the event.
Another important aspect of our recruiting is our student visit days where students from local Yehshivos come to experience a day at FTI by sitting in on live shiurim, hearing a mussar shmuz from one of the Roshei Yeshiva, having a Q&A with one of the Menahalim, and experiencing a Shakespearian journey that only Mr. Bob Canzanese, one of our very talented English teachers, can so masterfully present.
Finally, 20 prospective students were treated to a fun-filled Shabbaton last Shabbos which included, bowling and football on Friday afternoon, beautiful seudos Shabbos, inspiring shiurim, shmuzin and chavrusa learning with Rebbeim and current talmidim from our mesivta and bais medrash, two onegs, basketball, a BBQ melava malka with dancing, and a kumzits by a roaring fire. One boy mentioned at the end of the Shabbaton that he was very sad... when asked why he felt that way, he responded "because I wish I could stay at FTI, and not have to go back to my current..." but was consoled that soon enough he too will Be"H be able to attend FTI.
