Meet Rabbi Yaakov Fried

This senior rebbe and cooperative learning expert is known for bringing truckloads of creativity to everything he does with his students. A history expert, he gives a weekly class on Jewish history every Motzai Shabbos during the winter. (Visit our shiurim archives here to listen to many of them.)

What I do

I teach Limudei Kodesh in the middle school as well as in the elementary division. I also teach a modern Jewish History class on the State of Israel, just for elementary school students.

How I make a difference at YTCTE

I’m constantly adapting my approach to my students’ unique needs.

My favorite part about what I do

Finding new creative ways to reach my talmidim.

Parting Words

I love integrating technology into the classroom. It’s a great way to engage my students, build their skills and help them succeed!
