Mesivta Torah Vodaath Rabbinical Seminary says

The founders of MTVRS had one motivation: to provide scholastic and moral training for young Jewish men, in a world of conflicting ideologies and kaleidescopic social change. It was the profound conviction of the men who received and executed the plans for the Mesivta that the truths and ideals revealed in the Bible, expounded upon in the Talmud, and elucidated by countless traditional commentaries, transcended the shifts of society with the veracity and vitality remaining undiminished through the ages. 425 E 9th St, Brooklyn, NY 11218
