The Esteemed Rabbi Reuven Feinstein Visits FTI
The Rosh Yeshiva delivers a Pre-Shavuos talk 
In the week leading up to Shavuos, Rabbi Reuven Feinstein, shlita, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Staten Island, and son of the late revered Posek, Rav Moshe Feinstein zt"l, came to inspire the talmidim and Rebbeim of FTI.

On Monday, May 18th, Rav Reuven spoke to the entire Yeshiva about the significance of Kabbalas HaTorah and what it means for us in our everyday lives. The Rosh Yeshiva's moving speech was followed by a special Q&A luncheon with Yeshiva Rebbeim on the topic of chinuch. It was an absolute honor to welcome the esteemed Rabbi to our Cherry Hill campus.

FTI Annual Spring Trip Brings Fun and Friendship
The Yeshiva takes to the Poconos for Lag B'Omer 5775 
As soon as the weather warmed up, it signaled that time of year for our students' favorite FTI outing. This year both the Mesivta talmidim and our Bais Medrash bochurim enjoyed our Annual Spring Trip. 
Students traveled to the Poconos where they enjoyed Rafting, Camping, Swimming, Volleyball, Sports, Paintball, and a special Lag B'Omer kumzitz and BBQ in the woods. Everyone came back refreshed and with memories that will last a lifetime. 

Shavuos: כאיש אחד בלב אחד - As One Man with One Heart
FTI shares Torah learning with local Cherry Hill shuls
Shavuos 5775 gave FTI talmidim, bochurim, and Rebbeim the special opportunity to celebrate the chag with the greater Cherry Hill Jewish community.

Students enjoyed davening and learning at the Yeshiva over shabbos and yom tov. As the chag began on Saturday night, for Tikkun Liel Shavuos, students of the yeshiva were matched up to learn b'chavrusa with community members to start off the evening of learning. Rabbi Max and Rabbi Harris gave shiurim at Congregation Sons of Israel, and Rabbi Davidowitz spoke at the Young Israel. 
By the time yom tov concluded, some members of the 10th Grade Gemara class completed a full review of the Bava Metzia material that they learned during the school year with Rabbi Davidowitz. It was a beautiful chag, and FTI enjoyed the opportunity to share their Torah learning with the Cherry Hill community.

Prospective Bais Medrash Bochurim Shabbaton
Students from across the Northeast spend the weekend at FTI
Every year, prospective bochurim for our Stein Bais Medrash program are welcomed to join current FTI bochurim and Rebbeim for a special shabbaton at the Yeshiva
Article Image
This year, on May 15-17, we welcomed current high school seniors from throughout the greater New York and New Jersey area to learn more about our post-high school Bais Medrash program. Over shabbos, the students enjoyed home hospitality, their Friday night meal at Rabbi Max's house, catered meals at the Yeshiva, shiurim by Rabbi Harris, shmuzin by all of the Rebbeim, and chavrusa learning with current Bais Medrash bochurim.
After shabbos they enjoyed basketball, a poolside BBQ, and a kumzitz. They finished off the weekend with a pulsating morning seder and shiur on Sunday. We hope to welcome many of the shabbaton attendees next year as full-time students in our Bais Medrash program.
