Hi,
I'm looking for any information on Yeshivat Reishit in Beit Shemesh.
What type of boys go there? What is the academic level of learning?
This is my first boy going to Israel, that I am actually involved in the process and I don't really know what to ask or find out. So any information would be really helpful.

My information may be out of date but I know lots of alumns:

It's a yeshiva for MO boys who either want to frum out or are already frum but not great learners. There is a big emphasis on connecting with the rebbeim (Rabbi Jay Marcus and his sons) and on being inspired to love Hashem and the Torah, superficially. Actual learning - not so much. Where do you live?

Nicknamed Hotel Raishit (apparently they have beautiful facilities)
The boys I know who went there were from very MO backgrounds, not serious / not into learning. One is no longer frum though I'm sure this has nothing to do with the yeshiva.
The boys were definitely the type to go to Ben Yehuda, hang out, party, etc
That being said, I hear it is a wonderful yeshiva with great rabbeim and if the boy is self motivated and disciplined I'm sure it is a great place to grow... Bottom line, like similar yeshivahs, the potential is definitely there but it will be whatever he makes of it.

Thank you so much, Amother Crocus and Mulberry! Based on your replies it would not be a good fit for my son.
