Welcome to the Class of 2017!

freshmen oreintationOn Tuesday, the incoming freshman class came to MTA for the first time as actual students to have their orientation and opening day. After davening in the Beis Medrash, Rabbi Taubes welcomed everyone to their first day of what we know will be four amazing years!

After breakfast, the freshmen split up into their respective morning shiurim, met their rebbeim, and heard an openingshiur from them. During the rest of the day, the new students met their teachers, received their books, and learned more about the many exciting opportunities that await them in MTA.


Later in the week, distinguished YU Rosh Yeshiva and Rosh Kollel Rav Hershel Schachter, shlita, visited each of the four freshman shiurim. He spoke about his own experience as a student in MTA many years ago, the school's prestigious and unique legacy, and our connection back to the illustrious yeshivos of Europe. He closed by wishing everyone a successful year.
