News & Events
Welcome back Midreshet 5772!
We're happy to be back together and begin this zman with a tiyul by our very own Zev Orenstein from the David Project. We heard a "security briefing" in Gilo, overlooking the security fence at "the green line" and then had an inspiring tour at Har HaZeitim. We finished the day at Emek Tzurim at the site where archaeologists are sifting through Temple Mount dirt (years and years and layers and layers of history) All in all, it was a great way to reconnect with Israel and each other.

Wednesday night/Thursday was Yom HaShoah. We heard testimonies from survivors - Rabbi Shaya Seidenfeld on Wednesday night and Rena Quint, Thursday morning. We also joined the Emunah Women's program in Rechavia where we heard the life story of a survivor who escaped via the route of Shanghai. Our own students (Dassie Goldman and Cece Muhlstein) participated by lighting 2 candles in honor of the 6 million Jews who perished.
Classes resume Thursday evening and we are looking forward to next week's Yom Ha'atzmaut celebration!
