Following 15 years of education and hundreds of alumni from around the world, Yeshivas Tzeirei HaShluchim has announced that it will be closed for the upcoming school year in order to implement a massive renewal plan, promising to “fundamentally alter the way the yeshiva is organized and run.”
The plan, formulated with the advice, guidance, and counsel of a diverse team of Shluchim and Chassidic educators, will adjust and reshape the yeshiva and its staff in order to better fulfill its founding purpose of high quality, affordable education for young Shluchim.
“Tzeirei HaShluchim was founded for young Shluchim at a time when their were relatively few mestivas in the world,” said Director, Rabbi Chaim Kaplan. “The restructuring is about fulfilling this purpose in a completely new, unique, and even more effective way.”
Yeshivas Tzeirei HaShluchim was founded by Tzfas’s Head Shliach, Rabbi Aryeh Leib Kaplan, a”h. According to the administration, the move was a collective decision prompted by the changes occurring in the structure and quality of worldwide Chabad yeshiva education.
The yeshiva is expected to reopen for the 5775, 2013-4, school year.
The next months will be dedicated to crafting and implementing the renewed approach, organizational structure, and staffing adjustments. The plan calls for moving the yeshiva to a new, more comprehensive and dynamic perspective on delivering Chassidic education to better accomplish the vision beyond its founding.
For the current learning year, the Yeshiva’s Yisrael Aryeh Leib-Colel Chabad campus will be rented to Tzfas’s Yeshivat Chanoch LeNa’ar.
