Once again, the senior students at the Rambam Mesivta have been awarded academic recognition and scholarships at Yeshiva University. All four students who applied early decision to the special honors program were accepted. Moshe Dyckman, Michael Rosenfeld, and Yair Lichtman were admitted to the Jay and Jeanie Schottenstein Honors Program at the Yeshiva College. Dovid Simpser was accepted to the Sy Syms Business Honors and Entrepreneurial Leadership Program. The e-mail informing Rambam Mesivta of the news stated, “This year we had an especially large pool of applicants–our biggest ever! And we were very impressed with so many of them but especially the young men from Rambam! This is hardly an aberration as Rambam has a proud tradition of Yeshiva University honor students. The scholarships, along with a full tuition scholarship, are classified as early decision distinguished scholarships, all of which represent the highest level of investment in the most promising students.”

Rambam’s rosh mesivta, Rabbi Zev Meir Friedman, stated, “We are so proud of our boys and are fortunate to have so many wonderful talmidim who excel in limud haTorah and academic achievement. They are destined to make a positive impact on the Jewish community, a real Kiddush Hashem.” The principal, Rabbi Yotav Eliach, said, “These achievements are consistent with our longstanding track record of producing real bnei Torah who achieve on the highest academic level.” Mr. Hillel Goldman, assistant principal, added, “This should come as no surprise because Rambam is a small school by design and it is specifically geared to nurture each student’s potential, allowing them to achieve their best and work together with their peers to help each other reach their potential.”

Rambam Mesivta has a track record of over two decades of commitment to excellence in learning and college preparatory studies. It has produced hundreds of graduates who have successfully combined a life of learning Torah along with the pursuit of various professional careers in medicine, law, accounting, psychology, business, etc. The students in this year’s graduating class are clearly on the path to follow in that very same tradition. v
