    Counselors and Mentors

    Mashgichim and shoalim u'maishivim [assistant counselors and teaching mentors] are available in the various batei midrashot [study halls] for regular morning and night sedarim. They help students in their learning and assist newcomers in their transition to MYP and college life from either high school or Israel.

    Rabbi Moshe Tuchman serves as beit midrash coordinator.

    Shiur [lecture] assistants, senior MYP students or students from Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary serve as peer advisers for their classmates.

    Shiur assistants may serve as shoalim u'maishivim for their classmates, offer review sessions on a regular basis or before exams and are responsible for such administrative duties as distributing source material and taking attendance on behalf of the roshei yeshiva.
