Almost two years after the untimely passing of SINAI’s beloved Associate Director Jacob Weinstein, hundreds of people gathered at Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy for the dedication of The Jacob Weinstein z”l Legacy. Friends, family, SINAI students, and parents joined together to witness and participate in the completion of the sefer Torah, commissioned by Rosalind Weinstein, Pesachya & Michele Zaveloff, and Marc & Beth Rosenbaum, and donated by them to SINAI Schools. Mr. Weinstein devoted his life to helping children with disabilities and special needs develop a love for Torah, and bringing SINAI students through their Bar and Bat Mitzvah milestones with love.

On Thursday, April 11, a group of 54 MTA talmidim and faculty headed to Washington, DC, for MTA Israel Advocacy Club Hatzioni’s annual lobbying mission, known as MTAPAC. The group was also joined by alumni, including Josh Appel (’17), who is currently in Shanah Bet at Yeshivat HaKolel, and felt it was important to spend part of his Pesach break accompanying his MTA family on the trip, and Seth Jacobs (’17), who completed Shanah Bet at HaKolel in January and is currently attending Yeshiva University.

The boys in the Yeshiva Tiferes Moshe Early Childhood Program were treated to a fun, hand-on, matzah-baking experience. Together with their moros, the boys came into to the Lunchroom, which had been converted into a Matzah Factory. The tables were lined with brown paper, and each boy was given a special baker hat to wear. Then the “work” began.
