For Five-Towns native Aharon Rubel, attending Lander College for Men was “a given” after attending Shaalvim in Israel. Although he has yet to declare a major, the DRS alumnus said he was “excited about the awesome learning environment, with great rebbeim—you can’t really get this combination anywhere else.”
As devout as he is smart, David Manheim knew he was in the right place when he arrived from Israel to study at The Lander College for Men. A longtime yeshiva student, he was grateful for the school’s dual mission of challenging academics coupled with a commitment to Torah learning. “There was a tremendously positive environment among the students and a flexibility among the faculty,” says Manheim, who graduated in 2008 with a Mathematics degree.
