This past Shabbos was particularly noteworthy for the Talmidim of Mesivta Ateres Yaakov. The Mesivta held its annual Spring Shabbaton at the beautiful campus of Camp Romimu in Monticello, NY.

Last Wednesday, Mesivta Ateres Yaakov celebrated its annual Yaakov Moshe Frisch Grand Siyum, recognizing 96 talmidim who completed an unprecedented 129 Masechtos of Shas, or Sedarim of Mishnayos, over the course of the year.
This past week, Mesivta Ateres Yaakov held their Annual Bein Haz’manim Yarchei Kallah on Inyanei Pesach, sponsored by Oppen Scrolls.
A number of years ago, Rabbi Yehuda Orlansky, 12th grade rebbe at Mesivta Ateres Yaakov, introduced the “V’ha’arev Nah” program to his talmidim. The program, which was highlighted in Mishpacha Magazine, encourages talmidim through a variety of methods to engage in a tremendous amount of chazarah until they truly “own” a masechta.
The countdown began at 1:00 this past Sunday afternoon with more than 175 runners waiting at the starting line of the 4th Annual FM Home Loans MAY 5K.
