At YKLI, a Rebbe is much more than a teacher, he is a mentor, a guide, a coach, a confidant. Our Rebbeim develop an individual kesher with each student not because they have to but because they want to. That is because, in the eyes of our Rebbeim, every talmid is a gem-- a unique, priceless treasure that requires polishing and nurturing in order to reveal his innate sparkle.
A true Rebbe-Talmid relationship doesn’t sever when the school day, semester or year ends. Our Rebbeim cherish their time with their talmidim and it's a common occurrence for a Rebbe to invite talmidim for communal lunches or gatherings or to call to perk up a talmid who needs a little lift. Perhaps the best proof of the depth of the YKLI Rebbe-Talmid relationship is borne out by the fact that our talmidim do not hesitate to call upon their Rebbeim for advice or support.
At YKLI, the Rebbe-Talmid relationship serves as the foundation for superior growth in learning and mentchlechkeit.
