MTA raised a total of $551,080 for its Scholarship Fund during a 24-hour fundraising blitz held on Monday, May 6, and Tuesday, May 7. With help from a committee of dedicated parents, rebbeim, faculty members, and talmidim who worked around the clock, MTA surpassed its original goal of raising $400,000 and increased the goal to $550,000, which was then exceeded. All donations made during the 24-hour+ fundraising blitz were matched 1:1.

Grades 1-4 have been learning about chashivus Eretz Yisrael for the past two weeks.

It’s possible that everyone’s favorite part was seeing the camels cross the road, right next to a sign in Hebrew that says, Watch out for camels crossing!
