  NEW Seudah Shlishit Series Begins this Shabbat

Hi there! I hope that you are all well. 

Since everybody is still on fire from all the Torah that they learned over Shavuos I figured why turn down the heat. Let's keep it going. This Shabbos we welcome one of my favorite Rebbe's in the whole world: THE KOIDANOVER REBBE. The Rebbe is a wonderful humanitarian, and talmid chacham. Join us Shabbos day as he davens with us. 
This Shabbos I will be breaking out two new shiurim, one before Mincha and one during Seudah Shlishit: 
1) Electricity in Halacha  - we will be addressing your questions on the Kosher Switch, Apple Watch, and so much more. 
2) Seudah Shlishit - In light of the recent brouhaha with RABBI SHLOMO RISKIN in Israel (see - and the new position at B'nai David I decided to start a new serious entitled: 
Feminism and Judaism. This series is sure to rock some boats! 
Mazal Tov to the Kehillah as our Family Services Family grows, Tanya and Avi Heyman on the birth of a boy and Leora and Isaac Orenbuch on the birth of a girl! Click HERE for the full Mazal Tov and other announcements.

I look forward to seeing you soon, 

Rabbi Shlomo Einhorn

Bolt of Inspiration - The Problem May Not Be the Yeshiva
A Weekly D'var Torah from the Dean and Rav of Yavneh - R' Shlomo Einhorn 

Religious schools of all stripes frequently debate the pros and cons of keeping those children, that don't seem to fit in religiously, within the walls of their institutions. The argument usually forwarded to keep the "wayward souls" within the confines of the excelling school is that expulsion may push a significant number of our children too far and ultimately away. On the other hand, the expulsionists tend to posit that keeping troubled students in the school brings down the level of the entire student body and usually does not even serve that individual's best interests. After several years in education I can honestly say that both sides have merit. However, there can be a higher and a better way. 
In this coming week's parsha - Nasso - the Torah states: "Nasso es rosh bnei gershon gam hem lebeis avosam lemishpachosam," "Elevate the head of the children of Gershom, them as well, according to their households, according to their families." The Chassidic teacher R. Moshe of Kovrin interprets Gershom, not as a name but rather as connected to gerushim (those that are divorced from the service of G-d). Elevate those individuals as well. How? By linking them back to their families. 
Perhaps a beginning step in assisting challenged students in our Yeshivas is to realize that their problems in school often come from fracture that has begun at home. Perhaps our didactical approach should shift its primary focus away from the classroom and rather turn its attention to offering guidance and assistance by helping these holy children reconnect with their families in a healthier way.
