Guest Speaker

Rabbi Tendler


Rabbi Shalom Tendler, Rosh Yeshiva of Mesivta Birchas Yitzchok in Los Angeles, spoke to our students last week.

Rabbi Tendler reminded our students to value the gifts and talents each person possesses and to never compare their opportunities and challenges to others.
Rabbi Tendler was in Atlanta to celebrate the bar mitzvah of his grandson Yehoshua Parnes, the son of Rabbi and Mrs. Moshe Parnes.

To encourage more Torah study on the the days that lead up to Shavous, the Yeshiva has begun a special learning incentive. Students are encouraged to keep track of the learning they do outside of class time, and will receive prizes for their accomplishments.
