Since the beginning of the school year, a dedicated cohort of learners went above and beyond as part of Rambam’s prestigious Masmidim Extra Learning Program. Under the leadership of Rabbi Avrum Haar, the talmidim Zoomed in every week to spend their free time in extra night seder and lunch learning.

This week, the Rosh Mesivta of Rambam, Rabbi Zev Meir Friedman, addressed the whole school via Zoom to recognize the significance of Torah learning, and encouraged all the talmidim to join the program. Rabbi Yotav Eliach, Principal of Rambam, also shared his thoughts and made it clear that “We should stop thinking about extra learning as an extracurricular” and make it a regular part of lives.

The rebbeim who take part in Masmidim – Rabbi Haar, Rabbi Yosef Ziskind, Rabbi Ari Boiangiu, Rabbi Ariel Rosensweig, Rabbi Meth, Dr. Daniel Gober, and Reb Zach Beer – were also thanked.

Each masmid was given a plaque acknowledging his dedication to Torah learning, as well as a SWAG bag that is perfect for carrying s’farim.
