Beis Midrash Seating
MYP and RIETS shiurim primarily learn in two Batei Midrashot– the Harry Fischel Beit Midrash (the old “Main Beit Midrash”) and the Glueck Beit Midrash. Please consult the Shiur Location List on the website for a complete list of shiur locations. Each Rosh Yeshiva and his shiur has a designated learning area within a beit midrash. Seats will be assigned by the Shiur Assistant of your shiur or by your rebbe if there is no designated Shiur Assistant. Please consult the charts and diagrams on the website (Glueck first floor, Glueck Second Floor, Fischel) to familiarize yourself with your shiur’s location and the name of your Shiur Assistant. When you arrive in your beit midrash please find your shiur’s location and introduce yourself to the Shiur Assistant. He will be happy to help you settle into a makom. Please keep in mind that there are no chazakot on seats from previous semesters.
