By Rochelle Maruch Miller. As parents who are yirei Shamayim and shomrei Torah u’mitzvos, imbuing our children with a love and enthusiasm for learning Torah is of paramount importance to us. We invest our energy, efforts, and time working in tandem with our sons’ rebbeim and yeshivos, doing everything we can to ensure that our children grow in learning and in middos. With meticulous attention to every detail, we painstakingly select what we feel will be the best yeshiva to provide the ideal learning environment for our sons to “shteig” in learning.
Great is the nachas that we derive as we take pride in our sons, who represent the very essence of bnei Torah. Throughout the academic year, learning is the focal point of a yeshiva boy’s day. But as the school year draws to an end and the glorious, sun-drenched summer days beckon, parents begin planning family vacations. Inundated with a plethora of travel, lodging, and touring plans to consider when planning a yom tov or summer vacation in Israel, it is vital for parents to accord the same attention to their sons’ learning schedule as they do throughout the year. After all, limud Torah never takes a vacation.
Which is precisely what makes Learning Torah On Vacation (L’TOV) so unique. The brainchild of Rabbi Raphael Monczyk, who brings over a decade of experience successfully teaching boys from diverse backgrounds, L’TOV can ensure that your child will maintain his academic momentum while on vacation.
Originally from Far Rockaway, Rabbi Monczyk has resided in Yerushalayim with his wife, Sara, and their six children for the past 16 years. He learned in Yeshivos South Shore, Ner Yisroel, Mercaz HaTorah, Sh’or Yoshuv, and Mir. After learning with vacationing boys in Yerushalayim for several years, Rabbi Monczyk realized the need to make more parents aware of his unique program; hence, Learning Torah On Vacation (L’TOV) was created.
“Families come to Israel for the summer and yom tov,” Rabbi Monczyk explained. “They make arrangements for an apartment, hotel, food, car, and plane trips. While planning a vacation, it’s important to arrange time for your son to learn Torah, in order to maintain the momentum and the level he’s reached during the year. We will work with you within the parameters of your vacation schedule and be available where you want and when you want, making arrangements for Gemara, Mishnayos, Navi, halacha, kriyas haTorah, or any other topic of interest to you.”
Featuring a superb staff of professional, dedicated rebbeim, L’TOV will match your son with a rebbe who will learn with him at the time and location of your choice, at your convenience. Ensure your child’s Torah future by contacting Learning Torah on Vacation (L’TOV) to customize a daily learning schedule for your child that will maintain his bren for learning, while working with your vacation plans. Torah never takes a vacation!
