Building Expansion Plans Approved
After more than a year of architectural and logistical planning, and consultations with the village, the Lawrence Zoning Board has approved MAY’s plans for its campus expansion project. The approved structure to be built on 3 adjacent properties on Mulry Lane will expand the existing building substantially to better serve the needs of the yeshiva’s 200+ students. The expansion will house a new state-of-the-art gymnasium with grandstands and lockers rooms, four new classrooms for the upper grades, a student lounge, an exercise center, and a new computer lab. In addition, Israel advisers will be collocated near the senior classes they service.

Project 24- Bein Hazmanim at MAY
Over Sukkos break, a large number of Mesivta Ateres Yaakov talmidim participated in an exciting learning incentive program and achieved over 550 hours of voluntary learning! It was a tremendous Kiddush Hashem and source of nachas and accomplishment for rabbeim, parents, friends and the talmidim themselves.
The program, organized by Student Activities Coordinator, Rabbi Tsvi Greenfield, was entitled “Project 24: Bein Hazmanim Learning Program”, based on Rav Chaim Shmuelevitz’s well-known insight that 12 years plus 12 years is not the same as 24 consecutive years of learning. This idea encouraged MAY talmidim to continue learning and growing over Bein Hazmanim, with no break in their momentum.
Open House - Standing Room Only
It was standing room only at the Mesivta Ateres Yaakov Open House this past Sunday, as the Yeshiva hosted over 100 prospective students, along with their parents, all eager to learn all about the “MAY Experience.” In the yeshiva’s beautiful facilities and with the faculty and staff present to answer questions, the day's program was an opportunity to educate parents and students about the mission of the Yeshiva.
It was a busy, exciting and educational experience that included informative panels, video displays, passionate presentations, engaging dialogue, Torah brain teasers, team building exercises, raffles, a gala luncheon, prizes, an elaborate Student Fair, slushies, competitions and more.
