Beis Medrash

beis medrashThe Beis Medrash program at PTI offers talmidim the opportunity to grow in their Torah knowledge and understanding, deepen their connection to ruchniyus and develop their middos and character. Under the guidance of Roshei Yeshiva, Rabbi Aaron Kamin and Rabbi Noam Abramchik, the Beis Medrash program has developed a reputation for imbuing in their students a true love of Torah. Three levels of Iyun shiurim are given every morning, with afternoon and night seder devoted to Bekiyus. This schedule provides our talmidim with opportunity to gain perspective from the amount of material covered, and to improve comprehension through constant examination of the workings of Gemara. Halacha and Mussar are studied daily, along with a twice weekly class in Shmiras Haloshon.

Throughout the day, the talmidim interact with rabbeim, seeking their guidance, deepening their understanding of Torah hashkafos, and creating meaningful relationships. Vaadim are held at a different rebbe’s house every week, and during the winter Motzi Shabbos shiurim cover a wide range of topics. There are opportunities for talmidim to interact with rabbeim in various settings, including weekly vaadim, Shabbos meals at rabbeim’s houses, and frequent onegs.

The Beis Medrash talmidim serve as “big brothers” and role models to our high school students in both formal and informal settings, which in turn help the Bais Medrash talmidim develop leadership skills. Our Beis Medrash talmidim form strong friendships with the high school students, offer moral support, friendship and guidance.

At PTI, we take advantage of being located in a city consistently rated among the nicest in the world. The mountains visible from three sides of the building allow for skiing-snowboarding, sledding, fishing, hiking, camping and cliff-diving trips, and contribute to the overall ambiance of the yeshiva. The yeshiva also offers a popular summer zman program, where our students learn while experiencing the great outdoors. This allows them to gain a deep appreciation of the wondrous creations of Hashem.
