Over the summer, the Y.T.C. faculty changed dramatically. With the addition of Rabbi Meth, Rabbi Medresh, and Rabbi Schloss in t h e Limudei Kodesh department and Dr. Cowett, Mr. Spring, and Mr. Reich in the Secular Studies department, the Yeshiva's educational team became even stronger.
Rabbi Meth, the Director of the Jewish Educational Center in Boca Raton, where he resides, teaches a ninth grade shiur. "His class is challenging," said Yehuda Mittel, one of his talmidim. Known for his timeliness and enjoyable tests, Rabbi Meth goes over the Gemorah for each one of his students, making sure they all understand, and feel comfortable with the material. Zalman Weiss commented that if his whole class is on time to davening, then Rabbi Meth will get them a cake.
Rabbi Medresh teaches Chumash and Halacha to Rabbi Palgon's 11th grade shiur, and also the 12th grade. He lives in Miami Beach and previously taught at Mechina. Moshe Bloorian stated that "Rabbi Medresh is very easy going, enjoys spending time with his talmidim, and clearly loves Torah."
Rabbi Schloss, a father of three who resides in Miami Beach, was enlisted to teach the 12thgrade Gemorah shiur. "He is a wonderful and cheery individual who always brings a smile to the classroom," said Joe Shwartz. Joe also commented that his Rebbi gets everyone involved, giving each student a challenge and the motivation to reach great heights.
For English, Rabbi Levine brought in Dr. Cowett and Mr. Reich. Jonah Berger said of Dr. Cowett, "If people don't get it in the beginning, you can be sure that he will do his best to help." Our new English teacher is known for having taught Peyton Manning and for his daughter's argument made through a painting of a cow in sunglasses playing the violin.
Mr. Reich, the 11th and 12th grade honors English teacher, lives in Hollywood and davens at the Young Israel on Shabbos. Students said that Mr. Reich is an interesting teacher and that his class is challenging.
Mr. Spring was brought in from New Jersey to teach the Social Sciences. With a background working on Wall Street, Mr. Spring is the man for the job, bringing reality to the economics classroom along with his widely enjoyed sense of humor.
