Should a bochur go to Eretz Yisroel to learn?
I don’t really know if it’s always justified. We have good yeshivos here in America. And you can become a gadol b’Yisroel in the yeshivos here. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t go, but I don’t think it’s a big necessity. I know talmidei chachomim who never left this country. They grew great and today they are the Roshei Yeshiva who head the biggest yeshivos in America. And they never went to any place else except for America.
