Community Mishmar

Thursday night is Mishmar night! The YOY bachurim get together with the TDSA students to review what they learned in class, learn the weekly parsha, or move ahead in whatever tractate they wish. Airheads and raffles add to the weekly excitement.

Cocoa Club
For fifteen minutes before davening, anyone who can get up early can come to the Beis Midrash to learn a few halachos. Every day, Rabbi Tendler hosts the "Cocoa Club" for the early birds, where kids can learn a few se'ifim of the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch as well as have a cup of hot chocolate before shacharis.
Topics that will be covered this month include preparation for davening, laws of Shema and Shemoneh Esrei, and laws of a synagogue and Beis Midrash.

Guitar Club
Sometimes it's inside, sometimes it's outside, but one thing's for sure: at 4:00 every day, you'll hear some lovely stringed music from somewhere at the Yeshiva. Mr. Hall teaches guitar, mandolin, and banjo during the afternoon break for everyone who wants. Want to join, even though you haven't yet? Don't fret, newcomers are always welcome.

Touro Visit
Last week, Touro College came to talk to the upperclassmen
about their college programs and the classes they offer in Judaics and General Studies.
