Signature Youth Program

Run by Rabbi Avi Frank and Mrs. Tziri Frank, our programs deliver a fun, educational, and stimulating experience for young adults and children of all ages.

Rabbi Frank leads a busy life as a Rebbe in Monsey’s Yeshiva Spring Valley in the mornings, Principal of Monsey’s Yeshiva Tiferes Mordechai in the afternoon, and director of the AI Campus in Marshall, IN during the summer. In his rare spare time Rabbi Frank directs Pirchei and hosts Shabbatons for youth groups. Rabbi Frank has found his perfect niche as Director of the Gateways Children’s Program.​

Mrs. Frank is the director of Mishmeres, a high school program for the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation, and has a distinguished career inspiring and educating children of all ages. She is best known for her role in TIC Talk, the Chizuk hotline for high school girls; “Frankly Speaking,” a well-known humor column; and “Night of the Stars,” starring the Day Hab participants of Chesed 24/7.​ As the Gateways Babysitting Coordinator, Mrs. Frank ensures all young children are well cared for.
