Q. There is a Baal Teshuva that is fully integrated into the Haredi community with the exception of the fact that he cannot learn in Lashon Hakodesh and only learns from English sefarim (translated Gemara, Mishna Berura, sefarim on halacha). Other than that, he is fully Haredi. He was offered to join a Baal Teshuva yeshiva where they will be able to help him with kriah skills.
However, he feels uncomfortable in that yeshiva, after visiting, as the ruach (spirit) of the yeshiva talmidim is not Haredi (not people who daven with a hat and jacket, people that are still living a goyishe lifestyle to a degree, perhaps bachurim that have earrings). He generally davens with a hat and jacket and follows all the hanhagos (traditions) of regular yeshivish people. Should he attend that yeshiva or rather stay in the Haredi yeshiva that he learns in now and find a different way to master kriah?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that he should remain at the Haredi Yeshiva and get himself someone to teach him how to read and Lashon Hakodesh.
(He may benefit also from using Siddurim with phonetics).
