Why Spend a Semester in Yeshiva Berlin?

Dear Rabbi,

I’m an undergrad at a private college, doing really well and working hard to get into graduate school. I’m also very active with Chabad on campus. My Chabad rabbi has been bugging me to take off one semester to study in a yeshiva “some time before graduate school.” It’s still not clear to me what this yeshiva place is all about, and definitely not clear why I should take off in the middle of my studies to go there.

I really like this rabbi, I guess I’m just not getting it. Can you clarify some of this?

Yeshiva Gedola Berlin visits Rabbi Jonathan Eybeschütz

Rabbi Jonathan Eybeschütz

Rabbi Yehonosson (Jonathan) was born in Cracow (Poland) in the year 5450 (1690). 

His father, Rabbi Nosson Nota, was Rabbi in Eibenschitz (Moravia), where he died,  ​leaving Jonathan a young orphan. A wealthy Jew in Vienna took the young lad under his wing. However, the widow feared that the boy might be distracted from his Torah studies in his new surroundings. She took him back with her to Prossnitz, where she came to live. There, Jonathan studied Torah in the Yeshiva of the Gaon Rabbi Meir Eisenstadt, author of Panim Meiroth. Soon also his mother died, and Jonathan found a foster-home with Rabbi YitzchakSchapiro, chief rabbi of Prague and Bohemia. When he became of marriageable age, Rabbi Jonathan married the chief rabbi's daughter.

For several years, Rabbi Jonathan lived in his father-in-law's house and concentrated on his studies quietly and peacefully. He became known as a brilliant Talmudic scholar.
