Leading the program will be Rav Reuven Billowitz. Rabbi Billowitz learned by Reb Dovid Soloveitchik and in the Brisker kollel for eight years.

The transitional stage for a Baal Tshuva from Yeshiva in Israel to a secular work/schooling environment is crucially important and presents unique challenges and opportunities. How successfully a student navigates this stage will determine the character and success of the next most important stages of life: marriage and family. The vision of the program is to help students both materially and spiritually navigate this stage and create the basis for a successful life with a healthy balance of work, family, and spiritual growth. The combination of a warm environment with other like-minded students, a strong learning schedule, a growth oriented relationship with a Rebbi, job networking and mentoring, and a vibrant dynamic Frum community will be the features of the program which will enable the students to successfully navigate this transition.
