RABBI YISROEL KAMINETSKY, our founding Menahel, embodies the character traits and Torah ideals which we hope to instill in our students. A graduate of Yeshiva University, where he was Valedictorian of Jewish Studies and a musmach of its affiliated Rabbi Isaac Elchonon Theological Seminary, he was hired immediately upon finishing his semicha as a Rebbe at Yeshiva University High School for Boys, his alma mater. He then came to DRS where he has taught and served as a dynamic and beloved role model for all of our students. His formal educational experience is complemented by an impressive array of informal educational experience – in New Jersey NCSY, Camps Mogen Avraham and Mesorah, as well as most recently, serving as the Mashgiach and Educational Director of the highly successful NCSY Summer Kollel in Bait Meir, Israel. Rabbi Kaminetsky is known throughout the world of chinuch as an inspiring, caring and devoted educator and friend, whose ability to demand excellence from his students is eclipsed only by his love for them. He has brought to the DRS Yeshiva High School for Boys a vision for infusing the entire Yeshiva with that same spirit of Torah, warmth and academic achievement.
