Seven Central students were accepted to this fellowship, which was fully funded by the grant.

MTA celebrated the incredible learning accomplishments of all of the yeshivah’s talmidim at its annual Seudas Preidah and Siyum on Thursday, June 3. Talmidim and rebbeim participated in the event in person, and parents, grandparents, and family members joined via livestream. The evening began with inspiring remarks from Head of School Rabbi Joshua Kahn and Yeshiva University President Ari Berman (’87), followed by the siyum. Five siyumim were made on Masechtos Megillah, Makos, Tamid, P’sachim, and on Shas Mishnayos by student representatives Elie Husarsky (’24), Yosef Weiner (’23), Ezra Schechter (’22), Aryeh Manevitz (’23), and Shneuer Agronin (’21) on behalf of all of the talmidim who completed them. The event also culminated MTA’s Shalsheles HaMesorah Mishnah Project, a program that provides grandparents and their grandchildren, parents, or other relatives and children with the meaningful opportunity to take advantage of the Shalsheles HaMesorah (the chain of tradition), and increase Torah learning in the MTA community. The program, which began on Pesach and finished on Shavuos, enabled talmidim to learn a masechta or part of a masechta of mishnayos with a grandparent, parent, or other relative over this time period, and everyone who participated had the opportunity to make a siyum on all of Shishah Sidrei Mishnah at the seudas preidah.
