After an amazing experience for Yeshiva Tiferes Moshe students and the Queens community at large last year, the new batch of 7th graders in Yeshiva Tiferes Moshe were introduced to the special Names Not Numbers Project. The project was conceived by Mrs. Tova Fish Rosenberg as a unique Holocaust memorial project, where all participating students have the unique opportunity to research, interview, film, and produce a professional documentary about a survivor’s experience that will be archived for future generations in the Holocaust Museum. Rabbi Yaakov May, Menahel of Yeshiva Tiferes Moshe, opened the program by speaking about “how every survivor has a story and every survivor has a miracle.”

On Monday, September 9, MTA Freshmen had the privilege of meeting with Yeshiva University Rosh Yeshiva Rav Hershel Schachter, who visited the Freshman shiurim to welcome the new talmidim to the MTA community. In addition to sharing inspirational divrei Torah with the boys, Rav Schachter also shared his own experience as an MTA talmid.


On Thursday, June 20, MTA talmidim in Rabbi Genachowski’s Freshman Shiur had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be m’samei’ach chasan v’kallah at the wedding of an incredible couple who recently converted to Judaism. What an amazing way to welcome them to our community! Talmidim had a great time dancing with the chasan and even got to sing with Eitan Katz during the chupah.

On Thursday, September 12, the entire MTA Freshman Grade enjoyed an exciting day of hiking. Talmidim spent time bonding with each other and their rebbeim on the hiking trails, where they pushed themselves outside their comfort zones in team-building activities and had the opportunity to make new friends. After a quick detour to 7-Eleven for post-hike Slurpees, the day concluded with intense sports games and a barbecue dinner.

On Wednesday, June 19, Ezra Academy held its annual graduation, an event that symbolizes the close of a chapter for the seniors – the end of a chapter filled with skills, growth, and memories that will last them long into their future stages of life. This year’s class was the largest in recent history, showing not only the growth of the seniors but the growth that the school itself has been experiencing.
