Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

The journey begins! On Tuesday, MTA welcomed its 107th class of incoming freshman, the Class of 2027. This superstar group of talmidim hails from many different communities, including Bergen County, Passaic, Westchester, Brooklyn, Queens, West Hempstead, the Five Towns, Highland Park, Monsey, Baltimore and Connecticut. As the buses pulled up and first-time high schoolers emerged, the enthusiasm could be felt by everyone. Though the talmidim began the day a bit nervous about beginning high school, that was soon replaced with excitement, as they were greeted warmly by their rebbeim and administrators.

MTA Freshman Orientation, under the expert direction of Freshman Grade Dean Rabbi Eli Cohn, is designed to begin a process of bringing this group of talmidim together into one unified grade. The program gave the freshman an opportunity to begin the signature YUHSB experience of shiur with their rebbe, as well as get oriented with their teachers in their core general studies courses. It was also a great opportunity to discuss the core values of MTA, and what the yeshiva experience will be like during their time on campus. Finally, the day also provided the Class of 2027 to meet with their Lion senior mentors. The senior mentors are a selected group of 12th grade talmidim who are matched up with small groups of freshman. This provides each ninth grader with an address of a fellow talmid in MTA to go to for advice, and to help get acclimated to yeshiva. The Lion mentors accompanied the Class of 2027 throughout their day, helping them learn their way around the campus and get used to the schedule. The talmidim concluded the day excited to begin their high school experience at MTA. Every rebbe and teacher is looking forward to a year full of personal and spiritual growth!
