On Thursday, November 14, MTA Freshmen enjoyed an incredible Night In Yeshiva with their rebbeim and Senior mentors. The evening kicked off with pizza and a d’var Torah; then the real fun began!
Freshmen and their Senior mentors broke into groups and strategized the best way to build boats out of cardboard boxes. Working together as a cohesive group, each team constructed a boat, then headed over to the Yeshiva University pool for a race to see which boats could float. After racing and swimming, everyone boarded buses to Urban Air Trampoline Park for even more fun and excitement! “Freshmen are still getting comfortable in their new high school environment,” said Freshman Grade Dean Rabbi Eli Cohn. “Freshman Night In is a great way for talmidim to make new friends, bond together as a grade, learn from their Senior mentors, and get to know their rebbeim better.”
The night continued back at MTA with ice cream sundaes, sports, and games. Everyone returned home the next morning after Shacharis, breakfast, and a d’var Torah. “Watching talmidim develop relationships with each other and with their rebbeim, as they bond over all of these exciting activities, is truly an unforgettable experience,” Rabbi Cohn shared. “It’s extremely rewarding to watch these relationships continue to grow throughout the year.”
