« on: January 24, 2016, 04:14:13 AM »
I tried asking this question elsewhere but no one took me seriously.

Can someone please explain what "Yeshiva Week" is?

When presence in Yeshiva is weak  ::)

Ha, this is actually *not* a YU thing. YU's break ends on Monday. Yeshiva Week just started.

D93, all MO elementary/high schools in the NY/NJ area give off the same week every January in between semesters, so that parents who have kids in different schools, can have all the kids off at the same time. Seems wise, but the fact that most parents are not off this week themselves (and often may actually be off during the Christmas/New Years week when all non-Jewish schools are off) makes it less than ideal.

Thank you! Greatly appreciated.

Yeshiva week is when:
You wait an hour for a slice of pizza in shemtov's
For every 5 chasidim on the MB Boardwalk, there's 1 goy
You need reservations everywhere you go in MB
The entire 4points MB is booked by yidden

I'm sure you guys can add on more

Though thankfully this year some schools already started vacation and some are starting this Wednesday. So not everyone is there the same time.
