Over 100 Mesivta Ateres Yaakov alumni, spanning 6 graduation years, joined together on Thursday night March 18th for an evening of learning and reconnecting. Although the Mesivta's annual Alumni Yarchei Kallah could not take place this year, the Mesivta felt it important to host an event at which Talmidim could reminisce and reunite with their Rabbeim and former classmates.
“This is part of our nachas,” commented Rabbi Yossi Bennett, S’gan Menahel, who organized the event, “Married and single alumni, those returning from Eretz Yisroel, those in yeshiva and college locally, and those working here as well, all returning to Yeshiva to reconnect and enjoy a night of growth together.”
The alumni and Rabbeim learned together during an hour-long "retzifus seder", followed by a lively Tisch. The Tisch, co-sponsored by alumnus Naftali Engel of The Rebbe’s Choice and alumnus Shimmy Charlop of The Canteen, included cholent, kugel, beef jerky and take-home herring. The Rosh HaYeshiva, Rabbi Mordechai Yaffe, and 10th grade Rebbe, Rabbi Leibe Wolf, delivered Divrei Chizuk, along with zemiros and warm feelings from all who attended.
The Mesivta thanks Mr. & Mrs. Dovi Wisnicki and alumnus Yaakov Biderman for co-sponsoring the event.
