10th Grade Shabbaton in Charlotte


The 10th graders returned from a fabulous Shabbaton in Charlotte, North Carolina last week. Many thanks to Rabbi and Mrs. Oppenheim for hosting us and providing all of our Shabbos meals, to Rabbi and Mrs. Estreicher for leading the trip, and Eli Gray for driving and chaperoning. After a ruach- filled Shabbos, the boys took in some bowling and pizza Motzei Shabbos, and then spent Sunday in the North Georgia Mountains. It's safe to say not everything went exactly according to plans, but that too was a valuable life lesson for the boys - they made whatever adjustments were necessary and had a great time doing so! 
Roshei Yeshiva visit Yeshiva Ohr Yisrael 



As part of the Kollel Ner Hamizrach Opening event this past Tuesday, YOY had the opportunity to take advantage of the presence of two Roshei Yeshiva, HaRav Shmuel Kamenetsky shlit"a, of the Philedelphia Yeshiva, and HaRav Malkiel Kotler shlit"a, of Lakewood. Our students greeted both of the Roshei Yeshiva as they arrived at the airport with song and dance and then hosted them in our Yeshiva for two brief talks. According to the Roshei Yeshiva, it was as inspiring for them to see our talmidim as it was for our talmidim to see them!
