For Our Talmidim
The emotional wellbeing and happiness of a child is the foundation for his success. In order to achieve this we build a safe and nurturing environment of Yiras Shomayim and Chassidishkeit. In such an environment a Bochur can grow to love learning, challenge himself to go beyond his current level, and excel at his own pace. MLTL maintains high standards of academic excellence and nurtures Talmidim in an environment infused with Hiskashrus to the Rebbe. We encourage curiosity, critical thinking, personal responsibility and self respect, as well as mutual responsibility and respect for other Talmidim. In such a way, we strive to foster a strong sense of self esteem as they mature during these critical years.
We believe that communication with parents is of utmost importance and take pride in our responsiveness to parents’ concerns and involvement of parents as much as possible. We strongly encourage parents to be in regular contact with their son, and stress to our Talmidim the need to involve parents in their lives as much as possible while away from home.
For Our Staff
We believe that the Yeshiva experience benefits the staff as much as it does the Bochurim.
היינו דאמר רבי הרבה תורה למדתי מרבותי ומחבירי יותר מהם ומתלמידי יותר מכולן
We provide our staff with clear guidelines, expectations, and procedures. Our staff attend regular ongoing professional training and are encouraged to increase in their own learning. Our goal is for our staff members to grow each year together with their Talmidim and go מחיל אל חיל.
Being involved in Chinuch adds to one’s knowledge and experience, such that it increases one’s ability to be a positive influence on others… (Hisvaaduyos, 5749 pg. 378)

It is not sufficient to learn a matter with the student, and assume that Hashem will help that the student will make the effort on his own. Rather one must make a special effort to learn with the student until he can understand it in his own terms…
(Hisvaduyos, 5749 pg. 409)
Educating the Complete Child
By creating an environment which is safe and nurturing, Talmidim can be encouraged to go out of their comfort zones and find new strengths inside of themselves. A Mechanech must be in tune with the child and know how to turn his challenges into strengths, until he himself learns to see his own virtues and desires to grow and challenge himself in all areas of his Avodas Hashem.

Keys to Hatzlocha
Parents are updated weekly on Yeshiva life, special events, important announcements and schedule changes. Hanhola are always available and responsive to parents’ concerns. We believe that only with close collaboration can we meet the full needs of the Talmid.
Shemiras Hasedarim, Responsibility and Personal Conduct
The Baal Shem Tov was systematic and orderly. The Maggid, his successor, insisted on order. And my great-grandfather – the Alter Rebbe – taught chassidim to be orderly.
(Hayom Yom, 7 Tammuz)
MLTL provides a traditional curriculum of Nigleh and Chassidus, while not losing focus of the goal of Talmidim graduating with a broad knowledge of Yedios Klaliyos, basic learning skills, and desire to learn more.

Space is very limited. With a focus on each Bochur, we will be very selective to ensure that our Talmidim will achieve the maximum benefit from our Yeshiva and parents can be assured that their son will be in a wholesome environment free from any unwanted influences.

Curriculum and Academics
See below for information about our:
General Studies – לימודי חול
׳׳די תלמידים זאלן זיין פרומע ערליכע אידן, ווארימע אידן, חסידישע אידן׳׳
At Mesivta Lev Tmimim the curriculum is built under the direct guidance of veteran Mechanchim and Mashpi’im with a goal of ensuring strict adherence to the Rebbe’s goals of Mesivta Chinuch. Specifically, the Rebbe has made it clear on numerous occasions that the goal of the Yeshiva nowadays is different than it was in previous generations. As such the the curriculum should be designed such that the goals of this generation”s Yeshiva Chinuch should be achieved. Read more…
’לימודי חול ’על טהרת הקודש
Children should be taught to appreciate that everything is connected with the Torah. When they perform an experiment in a science lab, they should know that it is G-d’s creative power that is causing the chemical reactions they observe… If a person thinks of secular wisdom as being unrelated to the Torah, he does not understand the Torah, nor does he truly understand the secular subject he is studying. (The Rebbe in Yechidus as related to Rabbi Moshe Feller) Read more…
Exposure to wide range of extra curricular subjects
As part of the rich curriculum of learning, we believe that exposing young Talmidim to many areas of knowledge will help expand and broaden their knowledge and help motivate them to further increase in their learning. As such, we have periodic guest Shiurim provided by various professionals including Shluchim, Mohel, Sofer, Shochet, as well as a Medical Doctor to discuss healthy lifestyle, exercise, sleeping and eating habits with the Bochurim.

The true bond is created by studying Torah. When you study my Maamarim, read the Sichos and associate with those dear to me – the Chassidic community and the Tmimim – in their learning and Farbrengens, and you fulfill my request regarding saying Tehillim and being careful with learning times – in this is Hiskashrus.
(Hayom Yom, 24 Sivan)
In addition to our devoted staff, we are also very fortunate for שנת הלימודים ה’תשע”ח to be Zoche to a wonderful group of Bochurim Shluchim who, in addition to the Learning Mivtzahs, and Mivtzoyim that they’ll be arranging, will also be spending much time working with individual Bochurim and small groups to assist with those needing extra help, as well as to challenge more advanced Bochurim in higher level learning. They are full of Chayus and are a beautiful Chassidishe Dugma Chaya for the young Talmidim.
1. Why should we consider Lev Tmimim for our son's Mesivta education?
2. How is the philosophy of MLTL unique?
(Igros Kodesh Vol. 18, pg. 168)
3. Is MLTL an 'alternative' Yeshiva?
4. I hear that your Yeshiva focuses on the emotional wellbeing of children. We believe in that and want that for our son. But does that mean that academics is of secondary importance in this Mesivta? Will my son learn, and learn how to learn?
5. What is the significance of the name Lev Temimim?
6. What is your policy regarding cell phones and electronic devices?
7. Do you have a policy on child safety and how do you ensure the protection of your Talmidim from abusive situations?
That is a very important question and we take a very strong stance on this matter. Please read our full policy and guidelines on the Child Safety page.
8. What is your alcohol policy?
Saying L’chaim is an integral part of the culture of Chassidim, M’Dorei Doros. The Rebbe gave out L’Chaims on many occasions, and Chassidim Farbreng and wish each other many Brochos over a Glezel Mashke. We are not going to minimize the significance of this important Minhag.
Nevertheless, at MLTL we firmly believe that alcohol consumption at the young Mesivta age is not appropriate and at this stage of their lives, Bochurim stand more to be harmed, than to gain from engaging in drinking.
As such, we do not allow any Bochurim to say L’Chaim on Mashke. Our Farbrengens are filled with energy and Chayus fanned by the Chassidishe Ma’ases, Niggunim, and Divrei Malchus being shared, and we don’t feel the Talmidim need the assistance of alcohol to achieve the desired effects.
At Farbrengens ALL Talmidim are encouraged to participate actively, to share – whether a D’var Torah, a story, a question, or just lead a Niggun. Farbrengens are opportunities for the Bochurim to connect with each other and with the Rebbes and utilize the inspiration for personal growth and Hachlotos Tovos.
9. What kind of boys do you accept to your Yeshiva?
This is probably the most important question to ask and we get asked this very often. Please see this blog post for a comprehensive answer to this question.
