New York NCSY leadership visited MSH this week to run a pre-Pesach Yom Iyun. The day started with interesting and interactive break-out sessions with topics that included: Imagination – led by Rabbi Yossi Schwartz, Something to Say at the Seder: A tour through time and place – led by Rabbi Jacob Bernstein, The Timebreakers: running out of time – led by Rabbi Manu Hass, Free-conomics: Does it pay to be free? – led by Ziona Isaacs, and The fire you never saw, the root of redemption – led by Mrs. Leora Lesher. The students learned new insights into the chag, the Seder, and more.

Yeshiva Har Torah students, staff, and mothers participated in a group hair donation this past week. The donated ponytails will now be delivered to Zichron Menachem in Israel to make wigs for children with cancer. All participants were treated to haircuts donated by the DeFranco Spagnolo Salon in Great Neck and the school’s PTA, gift bags courtesy of Sarit Ebrani and Talia Levy of Manot4Chai, and flowers from Metro Florals. All told, the PTA collected about two dozen ponytails to donate.

Thursday, April 4, may have been an ordinary day for most people, but for the children at Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx, it was an extraordinary day. When the students of Shevach High School heard about an opportunity to run a carnival in the hospital in order to cheer up the children there, they immediately jumped at the opportunity. As with all chasadim conducted by the Shevach girls, this too promised to be greatly rewarding.
