“In public school, they’ll ask you at the end, ‘Well, what have you learned?’ But here at Rice, the question is, ‘What kind of person have you become?”I don’t think I could come up with a better one sentence summary of what yeshiva education should be all about.

Inspired by Reb Kalonymos Kalman's ideal of a group of people coming together with the common goal of enhancing their service of God, increasing their sensitivity to all things spiritual, strengthening their love of acheinu kol beis Yisrael, and unlocking the enormous potential that we all have to cleave to the Almighty.
Interaction and discussion of practical ideas and concepts toward this end, culled from any Torah true source is welcome and appreciated.
Observations and personal experiences are also welcome; the point is to grow!
