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.

Mesivta Ateres Yaakov's Rabbeim work tirelessly for their talmidim. Whether it's helping a talmid understand a difficult sugya or providing him with personal guidance, The MAY Rabbeim are there for each talmid 24/7. This relationship doesn't end at graduation, rather it continues and flourishes throughout a talmid's life as he progresses in his learning beyond the high school years, develops his professional career and builds his family.
Funds raised through this raffle will go directly to supporting the Rabbeim Health Insurance Fund, providing them with additional chizuk as they continue their avodas hakodesh.
