FTI welcomes Rabbi Chananya Kramer
Introducing our New Associate Menahel for 2015-16!
Rabbi Chananya Kramer is the newest addition to our staff and he comes with a wealth of experience in teaching Mesivta bochurim. 
Rabbi Kramer has served as a Rebbe at Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim in Queens since 2008. There, he became a legendary teacher, satisfying each student's individual intellectual appetite, and connecting to them with his magnetic personality and palpable concern for the needs of each talmid. He also holds administrative positions at several other youth-related Mosdos.
Rabbi Kramer sees an incredible opportunity to help bring FTI - already a fast growing yeshiva - to a whole new level, and turn it into a premier Yeshiva which will positively impact the community at large as well. 
Rabbi Kramer is married to Hindy (nee Luban) and they have 4 children ka"h. We look forward to welcoming the Kramers to our Yeshiva and to the Cherry Hill community!

Shabbaton at Chofetz Chaim Yeshiva in Queens
The FTI Yeshiva Family enjoys Shabbos in NY
Article Image
The Mesivta and Bais Medrash talmidim enjoyed our annual shabbaton to the Chofetz Chaim Yeshiva in Queens, NY on shabbos Parshas Tazria-Metzora. 
After a Friday afternoon enjoying famous New York kosher pizza in Brooklyn, and B-ball in the gym at the Rabbinical Seminary of America (RSA), they got the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in an intense yeshiva environment of over 500 talmidim. 
We spent a wonderful, ruach-filled shabbos with the bochurim and Rebbeim of Chofetz Chaim. It was an honor to learn from both Roshei Yeshiva: Rav Dovid Harris and Rav Akiva Grunblatt, who shared private audiences with FTI. 
The weekend would not have been complete without the annual treat of Olympic Shwarma before the drive home to Cherry Hill. Until next year...

Students traveled throughout the Holy Land

The members of our Senior class, along with Rabbi Max, recently enjoyed a week-long journey visiting and learning at the holiest sites of Israel, as well as touring yeshivos that the talmidim are considering attending next year.
For some students, this was their first visit to Eretz Yisrael, but even talmidim that had been there many times before commented that they will remember the amazing trip and treasure the memories made for years to come.

Inspiration for the new FTI Bais Medrash z'man
Article Image
Rabbi Yosef Yoffe addressed the Bais Medrash bochurim at a recent Thursday night Va'ad and discussed his chidushim on the word z'man (time) and making each moment count. An especially important message as we start off a new z'man.
Rabbi Yoffe has been coming to Cherry Hill for 4 decades and being marbitz Torah to the community at large in Congregation Sons of Israel every Thursday night. It was an honor to welcome him here at FTI, and we look forward to honoring him with the Amud Ha'Torah Award at our annual dinner this year on June 17th.

On April 20th, Rabbi Joshua Levy, Executive School Consultant for Torah U'Mesorah's Department of School Growth and Development, trained our Rebbeim in the latest best teaching practices.
By integrating these modern teaching techniques into our current Judaic curriculum, FTI Rebbeim are now better equipped than ever to transmit Torah and its lessons to our talmidim.
