Overview

Overview

Mirrer Yeshiva Cent Institute says

Lectures are boring and inefficient. Long hours spent studying hand-written notes is very 1994. Anyone graduating today needs to know not how to operate a computer, but when. The fault is both with the students and the teachers. HackCollege is changing education. HackCollege is educating the students of the world about effective, open source software, putting techno-political arguments in everyday language, and creating a cult of "Students 2.0." If we can change the way 1 percent of college students and faculty in the world view education and technology, we've done our job. The mission of Mirrer Yeshiva is to educate its students to be Talmudic scholars who manifest critical and creative thinking, effective communication skills and the ability to make informed value judgements. The M.Y. stives to serve its students by offering a challenging course of studies, superior teaching, close teacher student interaction and a postscecondary Talmudic education of the highest calibre. At the same time, our institue has always placed great stress on the attainment of the highest level of personal piety, character and moral integrity. In carrying out its mission, Mirrer Yeshiva has always addressed the need to strengthen the Torah community at large by providing it with leaders, teachers, Rabbis, scholars and well educated laymen.
