New Rabbinical School in Canada
We are that rare centre-Orthodox Yeshiva that furthers participation in the modern world while simultaneously critiquing it. In our view, an Orthodoxy that separates one from the rest of the contemporary world has failed, for, traditionally, Judaism does not advocate cloisters or sages sitting cross-legged on a mountaintop.
We are, at the same time, that rapidly disappearing right-wing Conservative Yeshiva that understands that the way to G-d is through the commandments. In our view, a Conservative Judaism that has lost its halakhic raison dêtre has failed, for, traditionally, Judaism is not a smorgasbord from which one takes what one wants and leaves the rest. We specifically see as failing the Shabbat driving decision and the concept of basing “valid” decisions on minority opinions.
You can read about their faculty here, and they apparently hope to open their doors in September 2011.
