Mashgiach Ruchani

HAFTR High School is proud to welcome Rabbi Yissachar Blinder to our Judaic Studies leadership team as our yeshiva’s Mashgiach Ruchani. Rabbi Blinder has been teaching boys in the HAFTR Beit Midrash program for the last three years. In his new position, Rabbi Blinder’s goal is to engage and guide students in developing a deeper and more wholesome approach to spirituality and religious practice. 

Rabbi Blinder is a talmid and musmach of Rav Yitzchak Berkovitz of the Jerusalem Kollel. He was the founding rosh yeshiva of Nishmas Hatorah of Woodmere, served as Menahel of its high school, and continues his role there as the Mara Dasra.

Rabbi Blinder is passionate about Torah and mitzvot, and hopes to imbue the “geshmak to be a Yid” mindset to every HAFTR student, b’ezrat Hashem!

Social/Emotional Support

Mr. Elie Hirt joins the guidance team at HAFTR High School as a new social worker. He looks forward to meeting each and every student, assisting freshmen in their transition to high school, and being someone in the building whom students feel comfortable to turn to for support.
