Rabbi Shragi Herskowitz, Menahel
Rabbi Shragi Herskowitz, a visionary mechanech and sought-after mentor to Jewish educators throughout the United States, joined the YST faculty in 2015 as menahel of the Boys School. He came to YST after serving as the assistant English principal of Bais Avrohom in Lakewood and the leading 6th grade rebbe in the Lakewood Cheder. Since 2010, he has directed the learning program at Camp Ruach Chaim, where his strategic initiatives – frequently replicated at other camps – enable campers with unique challenges to achieve success. After learning in Eretz Yisroel, Rabbi Herskowitz studied for six years in the Bais Medrash Govoha Kollel. He is a graduate of both the Mercaz Teachers’ Training Program and the Aish Dos Teacher’s Training Program, and regularly participates in Torah U’mesorah principal workshops. Rabbi Herskowitz brings to YST a contagious enthusiasm for learning. He has a proven track record as an engaging administrator who elicits the very best from his rebbeim and teachers, and as a warm, effective educator who nurtures his talmidim to realize their potential, both as students and members of the community.
