  • 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.

  • 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)

    Posted November 21, 2014

    Rabbi Malitzky's Y17 Gemara shiur took part in a rather interesting and challenging assignment. Having spent significant time delving into the sugya of "Ba BiMachteret", the students were given a copy of the perek where the Rambam discusses the issue. Students were asked to become the Kessef Mishneh. They had to source each Rambam and point out the chiddushim and places where other commentators disagree. Not only did they do a great job but they enjoyed the assessment as well.

  • Storm Varsity Hockey Wins Again

    Posted November 14, 2014

    Tuesday night the varsity hockey team travelled to Manhattan to take on the Ramaz Rams for the second time this season. Other than the rubber floor, the only difference was that Rami Levine would get the start, his first of the young season. The game started out well for the Storm, as they applied constant pressure on Ramaz. Early in the first period, Yair Knoller fed Daniel Levy in the middle and Levy scored to put the Storm up 1-0. Later in the first, Calev Minsky continued the pressure and scored his first goal of the season to put the Storm up 2-0. The game stayed that way until the middle of the third period when Ramaz cut the lead to one. But Rami Levine and the entire TABC defense stayed strong and held Ramaz to only one goal in the game to give TABC the 2-1 victory. The Storm are now 2-0 in the season.
