This past Wednesday, Mesivta Yam HaTorah went to Adventure Park – a ropes course and zipline park. The students and their rebbeim enjoyed for hours the multitude of courses and the varying levels of difficulty that the park has. In addition to having fun, the boys were able to build stronger relationships with one another as they helped each other complete the courses.

Four MTA Juniors, Aryeh Kolber, Yitzy Shaykevich, Jonathan Sherman, and Yeshurin Sorscher, had an unforgettable experience at the NCSY JUMP Create-A-Thon competition. Held on November 10-12 in Stamford, Connecticut, students from 14 high schools across the country learned the ins and outs of starting a non-profit organization and the effort required to run it. Representatives from each high school were tasked with creating their own non-profit and pitching it to a group of judges in order to get a grant to fund their project.

Math is engaging, rigorous, and fun at Bais Yaakov of Queens! The sixth grade math students created Venn Diagrams while learning prime factorization. They compared and contrasted the prime factors of two numbers. They used their Venn Diagrams to determine the greatest common factor and least common multiple for those numbers. The girls appreciated the graphic organizer as a visual model to make abstract math more concrete. “The girls enjoyed ‘playing around’ with the numbers,” said Mrs. Lindell, the sixth grade math teacher. They look forward to more engaging activities to make math come to life!

On Sunday morning, November 10, the fathers of Yeshiva Tiferes Moshe’s seventh grade were invited to spend the morning bonding with their sons in Yeshiva. The morning began at 9:15 with a special seventh grade Shacharis minyan. After the minyan, the fathers and their sons had the opportunity to share breakfast together. Once everyone’s hunger was fully satisfied, the morning moved on to a special introduction to Bar Mitzvah for both fathers and sons. The seventh grade rebbeim invited the fathers to join their sons in class for a special father-son shiur.
