-Instead of wondering why these kids left
the religion, one should wonder why don’t all youth become irreligious.
-Yeshivos today give nothing. They do not talk about G-D. They do not
explain the religion. All they teach is some dry Gemorah and Halacha.
-The bochurim in these yeshivos do not understand what they learn. They
do not understand why they should follow Halacha. Why don’t they
all reject this low religion that is given to them?
-The first thing keeping them there is the social life. Every time there
is a group of people there are going to be ones that dominate the others.
These students like the situation, for what is more enjoyable then being
important. The others are weak to begin with they follow around never
seeing beyond it.
-The second thing that must be taken into account is the small amount
of Kedusha they do have. Although they are low they do study torah and
listen to many halochos, they do receive a small amount of Holiness. Even
though they do not actually feel it, it does make them feel content with
-Almost all kids that reject this is because they are Pogem Habris.
-When one spills seed he often becomes emotionally imbalanced, causing
many problems concerning his fitting into the yeshivah social system.
-In addition he losses his ability to receive the little Kedusha everyone
else is getting. When one is not content anymore, he becomes disgusted
with the situation around him.
[We have received a complaint that we
called Gemara and Halacha dry, so we are clarifying it... Heaven Forbid
that Talmud is dry. The Tanaim and Amaraim were great Kabbalists, we don't
even reach the dirt of their feet. All the mysteries of creation are included
in the Talmud. A person is not considered a Talmid Chacham until he knows
Talmud by heart inside out. Everyone should try to study Talmud everyday.
However the way it is taught in Yeshivas now a days is pretty dry. Let
us bring a quote from the great Rabbi Chaim Vital "These people make
torah into a desert, since they
do not bother to learn the wisdom of Kabbalah"]
