MTA welcomed more than 700 people at its Open House on Motza’ei Shabbos, October 23. Participants reflected the many geographic locations that make up the MTA community and hailed from Monsey, Riverdale, Queens, Manhattan, West Hempstead, The Five Towns, Brooklyn, Highland Park, Passaic, Teaneck, Bergenfield, and Elizabeth.
Throughout the Open House, Eighth Graders discovered how they can choose their own journeys at MTA, which offers talmidim a small, warm, family-feel, as well as endless opportunities to pursue their passions and expand their high school experience. They also explored the yeshivah’s strong Torah, academic, and extra-curricular programs and learned more about what makes MTA so special, including the rebbe-talmid relationship, leadership opportunities, location on the Yeshiva University campus, experiential learning, unique programs, new electives, and lifelong friendships.
The interactive and engaging sessions allowed Eighth Grade families to hear directly from a variety of rebbeim, faculty members, administrators, parents, and talmidim. Prospective families enjoyed meeting MTA’s warm and caring rebbeim, expert faculty, and friendly parent and student ambassadors, as they learned more about the inspirational Torah learning, strong academics, amazing extracurriculars, and unique programs that MTA is known for. The event captured the excitement and energy that MTA talmidim, rebbeim, and faculty experience every day and enabled participants to share these feelings.
Prospective families also had the opportunity to check out the yeshivah’s extensive array of extracurricular activities and academic initiatives at the interactive Curricular Fair. The achdus, ruach, and warmth of the MTA community were truly palpable, and MTA’s rebbeim, faculty, and talmidim look forward to spending more time getting to know Eighth Grade families over the next few months.
