TABC Students and Rebbeim Enjoy Pre-Chanukah Learning With Eighth Graders

E-mail Print PDF
TABC ran a multi-tiered late night learning program, one for eighth graders and one for its current talmidim. Rabbi Raphi Mandelstam led off the program for the current talmidim with a Chanukah shiur. The two programs then intersected, as the TABC talmidim helped the visiting eighth graders prepare mekorot for a shiur by Rabbi Malitzky. Many TABC rebbeim were there as well, to act as both a resource and source of encouragement. After Rabbi Malitzky’s shiur, the eighth graders continued with an enjoyable night of cholent, Dougie’s and sports. Simultaneously, the current TABC talmidim heard shiurim from rabbis Nachbar and Blau, continuing the theme of inyanei Chanukah. They, too...

Instead, the students walked away with a different gift: the knowledge that they were part of a memorable and meaningful mitzvah.

The toys were for children fighting cancer, and the Carmel students spent a month raising the money to purchase the gifts, said third grade teacher Gina Perl.

It all began with a read-a-thon. The students committed to reading 20 minutes for 20 nights, asking their...

Rabbi Shimon Green Challenges Students: Who Is Your Hero?

E-mail Print PDF
Stein Yeshiva recently had a very special visitor, Rabbi Shimon Green. Rabbi Green founded Yeshiva Birchas HaTorah in the Old City and was its Rosh Yeshiva for 25 years. He is currently the Mora D’Asra of Kehillas Shomrei Emunim in Phoenix, Arizona, and Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas HaTurim.

Rabbi Green gave a very thought provoking address to students, parents and faculty. He explored the question of “What is life and how do we succeed?” Rabbi Green explained that what one knows is fluid and changing constantly based upon what is experienced from moment to moment. In order for days to be meaningful, people need an anchor, a blueprint for a frame of reference to interpret those...
