Thank God, many can answer “yes” to at least some of these questions, but there are too many who can’t. Yeshiva administrators tend to blame families and college life for these problems, but having lived it, I know these excuses are weak.
If yeshivas are not doing their job, let them hear your dissatisfaction. Parents pay a lot of money for their children’s Jewish education. They have every right to tell the yeshivas they are unhappy. And this call to spiritual arms isn’t for parents only. It’s for every Jew concerned that the teaching of Judaism in all too many of our yeshivas lacks soul and meaning.
