Ten colleges have visited TABC so far in the past few weeks.Our boys have been very interested in the presentations and the college representatives have been very impressed by our students' questions. It was especially rewarding to welcome Yeshiva University representative and TABC alumnus, Jonah Raskas. At this point the seniors are busy working on their essays and applications, many of which are due during the month of November, while our teachers are working on their formal college recommendation letters. The College Guidance Department continues to work with all the seniors as they complete their applications. Twenty-five colleges are scheduled to visit TABC this year.

This past Wednesday night TABC's pre-Law club had the great privilege to hear from Assemblyman Gary Schaer. He spoke to the group about his position and duties in the State government as well as his experience being an Orthodox Jew in the government. The Assemblyman told the group about various bills that he himself authored that affect Orthodox Jews. Thank you very much to Aaron Eckstein for arranging this meeting.
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.
