Zvi Zobin is a long-time member of the Torah Ore Kollel who has, for many years, been developing techniques to help students improve their learning-skills. Many people who otherwise might have forsaken their dream to study Torah have been helped to become more proficient in learning Gemora. He is now printing a manual which describes the system he has developed for assessing and improving reading skills which he has called "Dynamic Reading Self-Improvement".

I am happy to see from the many Approbations from Mechanchim who have been using "Dynamic Reading Self-Improvement" that it can be an important tool in helping a wide range of people, from small children to mature adults.

As stressed by those Mechanchim, nowadays efficient reading is a key skill in all levels of studying Torah, yet it is often overlooked because it is difficult to assess the extent to which inefficient reading is preventing a talmid's success in his studies. Not only does "Dynamic Reading Self-Improvement" enable this factor to be assessed, it also enables even a layman - relative or friend - to help the student.

I am well aware of the good work that Rabbi Tzvi Zobin has done in the areas of enabling adults, teenagers and children to become proficient in reading Hebrew. I know personally of many who have been helped and therefore laud the time, effort, and system which Rabbi Zobin has established. May his efforts lead to success for many.

I strongly urge anyone who is not proficient in reading Hebrew to purchase these books so as to be better able to study Torah and be Mispallel to Hashem.

It is with great pleasure that I recommend two outstanding projects undertaken by Rabbi Dovid Abenson נ"י a ירא שמים with a burning zeal to reach out with care and concern to his fellow Jews.

Firstly, the "Framework outside Framework" programme originally pioneered by Rabbi Zvi Zobin, נ"י has been successfully applied in this country by Rabbi Abenson נ"י who has already assissted many students who would never have been able to achieve their full potential without his advice and guidance.

Secondly, Rabbi Abenson נ"יhas written a very helpful guide book titled "Bridging the Gap". This book actuall fills a gap in Kiruv literature. It is very down to earth with plenty of practical advice for the novice teacher or group leader who would want to interest the typical English youth to appreciate our Heritage.

Rabbi Abenson נ"י writes out of his own personal seccessful experience in this field and I am sure many will benefit from his sharing these experiences with them.

To whom it may concern

 

I have known Rabbi Dovid Abenson for a number of years. As an Educator in his field he is a dedicated and sincere מחנך.

For some time now Rabbi Abenson has been applying the "Framework outside Framework" System, which was originally developed by Rabbi Zvi Zobin, here in Gateshead with immense success, bringing people from all ver the UK and Europe to seek his advice and guidance.

Highly intelligent and gifted Bachurim have benefitted tremendously from Rabbi Abenson's tests, diagnosis and system.

I can whole-heartedly recommend this system to anyone who may have a reading or co-ordination problem which has not been properly identified or addressed.

My Brocho goes out to Rabbi Abenson that הקב"ה should lead him from strength to strength and that he should be given every encouragement to continue this great זכות of helping so many people of all ages to bring out their potential to the maximum.

Rabbi Zobin's "Breakthrough to Dynamic Reading Self-Improvement" has truly made a "breakthrough" in the techniques available to special educators, rebbes, morahs and parents in their efforts to help yeshiva children experiencing that most crippling of problems: difficulty with kriah.

As a consultant to yeshivot, I am painfully aware of the widespread and largely undetected kriah problems of children throughout our community, at all age levels.

Rabbi Zobin has combined the systematic thoroughness of the scientist with the subtlety and human understanding of the artist. Adding to this the depth and insight of the talmudic scholar, and the devotion and experience of a veteran mechanech, he has developed a most effective and easy-to-use kriah program.

Both the originality, and practicality of Rabbi Zobin's remedial techniques, as well as his in-depth analysis of the underlying causes of kriah problems have contributed immeasurably to the tools available to parents, rebbeim, teachers and specialists for helping children and adults with problems in Hebrew reading.

In my own practice, I have found his techniques to be extraordinarily useful, and in some cases, a real life-saver, in dealing with with the kriah problems of children, olbochurim and adults.

May HaSh-m grant Rabbi Zobin and all who have helped him in this important work, continued brocha and hatzlacha.

After having read Rabbi Tzvi Zobin's work and having spent extensive time speaking with him, I was deeply impressed with both the work and the person. Reading, the most basic and crucial learning tool is almost always the most ignored. This is primarily due to the lack of ability on the part the mechanech and the parent to identify a specific reading problem. Rabbi Zobin successfully educates and sensitizes both mechanchim and parents in gaining an insight into identifying specific reading skills and the remediation process.

Many children who are performing poorly in a classroom and are not fulfilling their potential can attribute, at least partially, their lack of success to a reading weakness. How can we expect a child to learn, even in an optimum situation, if his learning needs are hampered by kriah difficulty? It is imperative that parents and mechanchim of all grades familiarize themselves with this well-planned and tested approach.

May the ריבונו של עולם help Rabbi Zobin reach a broader range of children and adults and help them all reach their potential and be זוכה to their true חלק in Torah.

Sincerely yours

Zvi Zobin is to be commended for producing another valuable book in his "Breakthrough" series. His main impetus for finding a way to improve the quality of reading was to help mature students, handicapped in their study of higher Jewish learning by their poor reading.

He has successfully developed a systematic and simple method of pinpointing the "weak spots", analysing the cause of the weakness and rectifying it in a short time.

His system is not the result of "trial and error" experience, but rather is based upon his deep understanding of the workings of all the human faculties involved in the process of reading - i.e. the eye, the brain and the mouth and how they co-ordinate.

Although the methods outlined require a one-to-one relationship, I feel that teachers, parents and anyone involved in teaching, as well as teachers of reading, will benefit from studying "Breakthrough to Dynamic Reading Self-Improvement".

Our Yeshiva caters to help bochurim who, despite their high intelligence and background of Yeshivot and Yeshiva high school, have not been able to attain a working ability to learn Gemora on their own.

"Dynamic Reading Self-Improvement" is now a part of our program. We find that it is invaluable in assessing how best to guide our talmidim and in helping them improve their basic reading skills.

We must thank Rabbi Zobin for first indicating to us the link between inefficient reading and inability to learn Gemora. The student's ability to learn Gemora usually improves significantly when he has worked on his reading skills using "Dynamic Reading Self-Improvement". Talmidim find the program both enjoyable and challenging, rapidly improving their reading and boosting their self-confidence.

As Principal of a cheder in Jerusalem, I have found that one of our children's most important learning tools - their basic reading skill - is often neglected after 1st grade.

In my search to correct this problem, I was privileged to meet Rabbi Zvi Zobin. His methods are simple, motivating and successful for both younger and older children.

I think that it would be a good idea for every cheder to have someone to screen and work with the children that need help in improving their reading skills, using Rabbi Zobin's methods.

I believe that good results will be realized not only in the actual reading but also in other subjects as well.

The techniques are easy and enjoyable enough for parents to use with their children, thus enabling parents to help their children at home too if the child needs it.

I am delighted to see that Zvi Zobin has at last consigned to print his techniques for helping people improve their reading thus enabling the wider general public to benefit from his research.

I know of no other system which is simple enough to be used by a lay-person yet which is so effective over such a wide range of age groups and such a wide range of reading-deficiencies.

Even when no obvious reading-deficiency is indicated, reading-efficiency should be screened whenever a child or adult does not seem to be attaining their projected level of proficiency. "Breakthrough to Dynamic Reading Self-Improvement" can be a vital tool for undertaking mass screening and subsequent correction or referral to specialists.

This work is a major resource for every educational establishment and educationally-conscious home.

Zvi Zobin has compiled a system for the teaching of reading that includes a theoretical-technical explanation of the reading process as well as a detailed procedure for evaluating a reader's progress.

 

Mr. Zobin places a strong emphasis on improving reading related visual perception and discrimination as well as gradually increasing reading speed in order to move from simple decoding of letters and vowels to automatic reading of words and phrases.

 

The book is designed for a lay teacher with no previous experience.

The simplicity of your system belies its depth and power. Having used it on "problem" readers of all ages, and consulted on its use in our Primary and Secondary Schools, I now include a description of it in my courses at Gateshead Seminary. Our girls teach throughout the world and amongst their future pupils there will be many a forlorn child to whom your methods will bring new life.

Indeed, although we enjoy a perfectly normal of abilities, we are now screeevery boy at Secondary level (11 years old and above) using a condensed screening chart and shall naturally be consulting you on the results.

Many thanks for the proofs of your book; I greatly look forward to the day when every honest mechanech uses the "Zobin System" to raise standards and save untold misery.

It is indeed an honor to be able to write a letter on behalf of Rabbi Zvi Zobin's latest addition to his immensely popular "Breakthrough" series, Breakthrough to Looking for Problems.

Rabbi Zobin is a world-renowned educator, author and mechanaich who has specialized in educational remediation for learning gemora. For over twenty-five years he has been engaged in direct instruction, remediation and guidance as well as being consulted by other mechanchim from around the globe. Hundreds of students have grown immeasurably from his personal attention and perhaps thousands from the skills their mentors have gained by reading Rabbi Zobin's "Breakthrough" series.

In Breakthrough to Looking for Problems, Rabbi Zobin carefully and thoroughly analyzes all possible learning problems a student of gemora may encounter. With each, he includes clear examples from his vast experience as well as step-by-step solutions to enable the student to overcome these problems. Work sheets, graphs and samples are all provided to walk the pupil through the remediation process.

This book will prove to be a valuable addition to the resource library of both the experienced mechanaich as well as the beginner. It will also prove helpful to any parent who wishes to take a serious look at any learning problems of his child.

As learning problems can destroy an individual's self-esteem, they can also create tension and conflict in any home between parents and children as well as between parent an parent. When this happens, R"L, shalom bayis can be irreparably shattered. For these reasons, I am delighted that Rabbi Zobin's talent and insights will be available to the public.

The sefer is designed to show the student how he can relate to the גמראand organise his understanding of a סוגיא. Certainly, a person will enjoy learning גמרא‚ and make the most progress when he "lives in it", appreciating the reality of its arguments.

 

While I am not familiar with modern methods of teaching גמראanything which enhances the understanding of תורה and leads to clarity in basic גמראis to be praised and will open the avenues to more advanced learning.

Rav Zvi Zobin שליט"א presented before me his work "Breakthrough to the First Levels" designed to assist in the mastering of texural analysis and to aid teachers in effectively giving it over.

 

It is textural analysis which is the sine qua non of conceptual analysis (commonly known as "pshat", the basis of true לימוד התורה and yet so neglected in to-days' gemmorah education curriculum.

 

Rav Zobin, שליט"א, who is himself a recognized authority and consultant in gemorrah education, does not really require my הסכמה, however, I would like to express how impressed I was with his work both in terms of methodology and comprehensiveness. I am certain that it will make a significant contribution to to-days Torah world.

FRAMEWORK is an organisation being set up by Rabbi Menachem Rubin, Zvi Zobin and Avrahum Weiss to provide much-needed services for the Jewish Community.

 

FRAMEWORK's aim is to provide a network of chaverusas for talmidim who need extra-curricular or special coaching. These needs fall into several categories:

 

1. To help children who are falling behind in their studies or who are finding it hard to adjust to a change in their environment;

 

2. To help "nip at the bud" developing problems in learning;

 

3. To help develop the full potential of those who do not seem to be progressing as well as they should;

 

4. To help provide a framework for those whose needs are not met by existing Mosdos.

 

This is to include training for registered chaverusas and development of teaching-aids and text-books.

 

Long-term aims are

 

a. to form a reservoir of trained "yungerleit" who will be first- choice for jobs in chedorim and schools;

 

b. to develop customized text-books for Jewish Day-Schools, etc.;

 

c. to organize Yarchei Kallahs and seminars to help people not learning in Yeshiva or Kollel to enhance their ability to learn Gemora, etc.

 

These are all most necessary nowadays and may all who participate in this project be blessed with much Hatzlocho.

Reb Zobin has produced computer programs to assist Gemorrah study, to help develop skills required for self-study in the initial stages on one's learning and to stimulate interest in learning Gemorrah.

 

The use of modern technology to assist Torah study without compromising ourtraditional approach is a refreshing way of encouraging young people, and Reb Zobin has my warmest approval for his pioneering efforts.

To Our Dear Bretheren

I have watched with extreme pleasure as my dear talmid, Rabbi Zvi Zobin, has dedicated countless hours of intense thought, research and instruction over the last 17 years to developing the Breakthrough Series for learning and reading that has been a literal life-saving for so many students around the world. He is now recognized internationally as a leading expert in these fields.

Rabbi Zobin, together with Avrahum Weiss, are now making a major campaign to spread the benefits of the Breakthrough Series to many more talmidim by training enough people to meet the vital needs of those seeking to overcome learning and reading deficiencies. The three of them run an organization called FRAMEWORK for networking the screening and remediation programs which form the backbone of the FRAMEWORK system, and to maintaning them up-to-date on the best approaches.

I especially want to give my brocho and encouragement on their decision to open a Yeshiva for bochurim who need a customized program. Rabbi Zobin haד many years of experience in helping bochurim acquire a strong desire to advance in their Torah studies and in helping them to realize their potential.

Every talmid needs to find his way in learning which can eventually lead him to the success in learning of which he is capable. One of the greatest tragedies is the number of bochurim who, though they have been reared in an atmosphere of Torah and Yiras Shomayim, still do not relate to the sweetness of Torah. How awful it is that so many of them eventually forsake the ways of their families and seek fulfillment outside the framework of Torah and Mitzvos.

Understandably, the success of these endeavors so vital to Klal Yisroel depends on our financial support. I appeal to ALL supporters of Torah to extend to FRAMEWORK maximum generosity and in this merit, may we be granted the complete redemption, speedily, in our days.

With Torah blessings

 

Rabbi Chaim Pinchus Scheinberg
