PRLog - June 4, 2012 - BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Last fall, for the first time ever in Palm Beach County history, a Yeshiva (or Jewish school for Rabbis and ordination) opened. Approximately nine months later, the first class of 14 graduates at the Boca Raton Rabbinical College “Machon Menachem” will walk the stage.
Chabad Yeshiva Group
The school which was hosted by the Chabad of East Boca and led by Rabbi Ruvi New brought together 14 aspiring Rabbis from cities around the world to complete their final year of Judaic education. Over the past nine months, the young men have had the opportunity to study in a unique communal setting, which has allowed them to facilitate and lead community outreach programs in addition to a rigorous study regimen.
With the presence of the Machon Menachem Yeshiva, community outreach programs in Boca Raton have greatly expanded to include weekly one-on-one “chavrusah style” or small group learning classes, Thank G-d It’s Shabbat dinners and discussions, as well as holiday-themed barbeques and celebrations around South Florida.
