The Yeshiva feels that developing areas of responsibility and outreach are part and parcel of building well-rounded B’nei Torah. To this end, the Yeshiva boasts an active Student Government elected by their peers whose officers have rigorous job duties.
Under the direction of Rabbi Josh Zern, the Student Government organized the 6th Annual FM Home Loans MAY 5K race on the Far Rockaway Boardwalk, which took place this past Sunday, October 29th. Runners included students, parents, alumni and Rabbeim, who participated to raise funds for tuition scholarships and student activities.
“This is a perfect example of healthy, kosher outlets that our Yeshiva prides itself in providing,” commented Rabbi Yossi Bennett, Menahel, “Our Student Government did an incredible job in organizing this event.” A big yasher ko’ach to our top three winners Yoel Kreindler (first place), Chaim Shapiro (second place) & Eliyahu Deil (third place).
Each runner received a swag bag filled with sponsored items such as a Dri-Fit T-Shirt, sports bottle, beanie, and more. At the race starting line, over 200 runners began their 5-kilometer fundraising journey. Rabbi Josh Zern, MAY's Director of Development, noted, "It's amazing to see our students work so hard to help the Yeshiva provide scholarships for their peers. I think it really reflects the middos the Yeshiva works to inculcate in the student body."
The run was a tremendous success, bringing in much-needed funding for yeshiva scholarships and student activities, while providing the participants the opportunity to enjoy a meaningful afternoon or camaraderie and exercise.
In support of our brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisroel, the Mesivta and its Student Government is donating $10,000 of the proceeds to United Hatzalah of Israel whose life saving work is so vital during this challenging time for Klal Yisroel.
