YU Reunion Pic 2015 for web

On Wednesday, May 6th, Fasman Yeshiva High School welcomed over 40 recent alumni to lunch in Belfer Hall in Yeshiva University. FYHS alumni were overjoyed to share fond memories of the Yeshiva with Rabbi Mordechai Ginsparg, Assistant Principal and Rabbi Joshua Zisook, Director of Admissions. Rabbi Ginsparg updated the alumni about the new High School Beis Midrash and the great accomplishments in the Yeshiva. As one alumnus put it, “It was just like Rabbi Ginsparg was giving his morning announcements. It was so great to hear that the Yeshiva is doing so well.”

Rabbi Ginsparg also stressed that the Yeshiva is so proud of all of our alumni and that the Yeshiva wants to be part of their simchas and milestones. Additionally, Rabbi Zisook updated the group of the upcoming positive developments that HTC will soon encounter. He emphasized that the new partnership with Touro College should greatly enhance the offerings in the college and encourage more students to attend HTC for Beis Midrash & College. Later in the day, Rabbi Ginsparg and Rabbi Zisook enjoyed a dinner reunion with a few alumni studying in Landers College in Queens. One alumnus noted, “We are very busy with college and it’s not often that we are able to get together as a group. We are so thrilled to have this opportunity.” Another alumnus noted, “We should do this more often!” To that Rabbi Zisook noted, “We may do just that!”

HTC Hosts First Ever Yachad Shabbaton at the Yeshiva

yachad for web 1On April 26th, Shabbos Parashas Tazria-Metzora, Hebrew Theological College and Fasman Yeshiva High School hosted a Shabbaton at the Yeshiva together with Chicago Yachad. This first ever shabbaton engaged our Yeshiva students and Yachad members for an incredible weekend filled with ruach, singing, dancing and fun activities. This shabbaton also served as a great learning opportunity for our students and encouraged inclusion in a comfortable and safe environment. HTC welcomed Mr. Efrem Popel and Mrs. Shira Wiesenberg from Chicago Yachad, who joined together with the 14 Yachad members in attendance.

Shabbos began with a lively Carlebach style davening followed by an ice breaker activity led by FYHS students Eitan Drapkin and Zev Lafer. During the meals and davening, throughout the shabbaton Yachad members ate with the students seated throughout the room. They sang zemiros, delivered divrei Torah and had aliyos to the Torah along with the Yeshiva students. After Shabbos everyone joined together for a very lively havdala with singing and dancing.

One student related, “This shabbaton showed us how to be inclusive of all types of kids and not to judge based on how someone may look. It is our job to make sure that the Yachad students feel included.”

Our Yeshiva is very proud of its great relationship with Chicago Yachad,” says Rabbi Mordechai Ginsparg, Assistant Principal. On a monthly basis, FYHS hosts Yachad members for dinner followed by one-on-one learning. Daveed Hagage, Nechemia Gershman and Yechiel Comrov, students in HTC’s Beis Midrash & College program, serve as Yachad counselors for shabbatons and events. Additionally, FYHS students are regular participants at Yachad events in Chicago and beyond.

HTC and FYHS would like to thank Yachad for including our Yeshiva in their inspirational programming and we look forward to many more future shabbatons together at the Yeshiva.
