    ~ Chaim Sussman ('97)

  • The class of '04 is a fantastic group of people. I established connections with my classmates that remain some of my strongest personal connections to this day. I should also point out that my Rabbeim and Teachers were some of the most caring and brightest people in the business, and I still speak to many of them on a regular basis.

    ~ Avi Eserner ('04)

    ~ Eitan Rapps ('06)

  • The focus, in both religious as well as secular classes, on Orthodox values gave me a greater appreciation for them. Most importantly, I developed a sense of being able to view all areas of life (secular and non-secular) through a religious, Orthodox prism - a sense that everything I do can be an expression of Avodat Hashem.

    ~ Dani Shaffren ('04)

  • The 11Y Physics Class Doesn't Only Learn Physics

    Posted October 2, 2014

    Imagine working for a company that shuts down operations every seven years - generating no income. We are all familiar with the tremendous mesirus nefesh shmitta-observant farmers undergo every seven years in Eretz Yisrael. The Midrash describes these Tzadikkim as "giborei koach". This year, more than 3000 farmers are resting 90,000 acres of fields along with their equipment all for the sake of Hashem's Mitzvot. Dr. Berman's 11Y Honors Physics class has taken upon itself to collect $1000 this year for these farmers. In this picture Noam Weider is holding the Schtar presented to the class by Keren Hashvees. The Schtar not only expresses gratitude... it also goes on to explain how the class is meshutaf (partners) with a farmer in 100 meters square of his land. It is noted in the document how to find the exact location of our field.

  • Special Yom Iyun for the Yomim Noraim

    Posted October 2, 2014

    In the midst of the Yomim Noraim, the Judaic Studies Faculty wanted to find an opportunity to inspire and uplift the student body. They arranged a comprehensive Yom Iyun centered around a topic that is relevant and meaningful to everyday life - the timeless values of honesty and integrity. Rabbi Yaakov Glasser, Dean of The Center of the Jewish Future of Yeshiva University, started the program with powerful and impactful words. He challenged the students to take an honest look at themselves and begin to explore their endless potential. The students then participated in three different sessions focusing on honesty between man and man, man and himself, and man and God. The small session groups were led by the various members of the Judaic Studies Faculty. The sessions produced thought-provoking ideas and great discussions. We are hopeful that the Yom Iyun will leave an indelible impression on both the student body and faculty members.
