Happenings at the Yeshiva

On Wednesday we welcomed a group of lay leaders from Sha'ar Hashomayim in Montreal to our beit midrash, led by our musmach and their rabbi, Rabbi Adam Scheier. It was a wonderful opportunity to connect with these leaders, and the president of the shul addressed the entire student body about the importance of their future work as rabbis.

On Thursday, a group of prospective students came to our yeshiva for a "Prospective Student Shabbaton." The students were welcomed with a nice breakfast, and then participated in seder, shiurim, and special classes. This Shabbat they will be staying at the homes of YCT students, davening at the HIR, and having meals with students and with Rabbi Weiss. They greatly enjoyed the learning yesterday and we know that they will enjoy their Shabbat in Riverdale.

We want to wish a mazel tov to our musmach, Rabbi Max Davis, and his wife, Dalia, on the birth of a baby girl this Wednesday afternoon. She'tizku li'gadlah li'Torah li'chupppah u'li'ma'asim tovim.

Finally, we ask that everyone keep in mind those who have died and those who are injured and suffering in Haiti. We have been saying tehillim for them at the yeshiva, and are working on arranging a meaningful relief effort - donations of cash and clothing in a way that will really help. Please pray for all those who have died and are suffering, and think seriously about what you and your community can do on their behalf.
