As the fourth week of the Ezra Summer Series comes to its close, the program is more popular than ever. The recent speakers have covered a vast range of topics meant to help strengthen the Ezra Academy students in their understanding and observance of mitzvos. Additionally, the speakers and visiting faculty bring support for so many who are working to strengthen their relationships with HaKadosh Baruch Hu. After speaking with “the regulars” (those who attend weekly and have been doing so for the last three years), it is clear how much the program means to them. It is an opportunity to see friends, see teachers and rebbeim, stay connected, daven with a minyan, and maintain all the gains from the school year.

Despite a long day of work or camp, between 25 and 40 people show up to learn weekly. The program is engaging, energizing, and educational. As a bonus, week four was even a celebration of the principal’s birthday, with tons of extra staff joining for the party.
