On Shabbos, December 10-11, MTA’s Yeshiva Fellowship program hosted its annual Shabbaton in Teaneck. The event kicked off with a Friday afternoon football game, where talmidim and rebbeim from across all grades enjoyed friendly competition. Talmidim then spent an inspirational Shabbos with their Yeshiva Fellowship mashgichim, filled with beautiful t’filos and z’miros, divrei Torah,

lively seudos, and learning. They also welcomed 8th Graders to the Friday night tish, where they experienced the ways in which MTA’s Yeshiva Fellowship talmidim motivate each other to achieve higher levels of learning and spirituality. The Shabbaton culminated with an incredible shalosh s’udos, followed by Maariv and a meaningful Havdalah. The Yeshiva Fellowship program is a unique initiative that provides MTA talmidim with additional opportunities to grow in Torah and to develop both communally and individually. Talmidim benefit from the personal guidance of a dedicated mashgiach for each cohort, and also participate in special trips, programs, Shabbatons, and M’laveh Malkahs.

With the participation of Rav Hershel Schachter, distinguished poseik and RIETS Rosh Yeshiva/Rosh Kollel, and Rav Zvi Sobolofsky, esteemed RIETS Rosh Yeshiva, Yeshiva Fellowship talmidim take advantage of MTA’s relationship with the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (RIETS) at YU. This includes following a special halachah curriculum, participating in chaburos with RIETS Roshei Yeshiva, and a weekly Night Seder.
