  1. What a shame that a yeshiva is taking away its rebbeim from their students. Richard Joel has definitely done nice things in terms of connecting YU with the MO community and not leaving it as an isolated ivory tower, but this goes way too far.

  2. To be fair, Shavuos this year is after finals so there will not be so many people in the Heights anyways.

  3. When I was in YU the top of the beis medrash stayed in yeshiva for Shavuous. Furthermore, the honors program is required to stay in.

    I stayed for Shavuos at YU even when it occured after finals.

  5. I didn’t mean to say that no one will be there for Shavuos and I hope to stay in myself if there is a group of guys staying. But realistically, there won’t be so many people because many out of towners who would have stayed in will be back home. Also the only one of these rabbeim who lives in the Heights and would thus be there anyways is R Schachter.

  6. Oh yeah its only R’ Schachter…I guess thats no big deal (sic)

  7. What has happened to the English department at YU?

  8. Does RHS always go away for Yom Tov?
    I remember an ad for some hotel this Pesach where he was listed correctly as the biggest draw.
    I should play Kreminologist as to the order of the listing-certainly not based on the order of being a Talmid Chacham-Joel first? Not even Rabbis first-Mrs Rosensweig is before some Rabbis.

  9. Former YU –Rav Schachter shlita has been in my community more than once for shavuos (one of his children lives here). His Torah teaching, needless to say, added a lot to the yom tov. Was the yeshiva to blame then?
