On Motza'ei Shabbos, January 31st, Hebrew Theological College in Skokie, Illinois, hosted its 34th Annual Melave Malka in the Lavin Dining Hall. Nearly 300 guests enjoyed a sumptuous fleishig buffet to benefit HTC's Samuel & Nina Bellows Kollel as they listened to a musical performance by Listen Up! a cappella. During the evening Rabbi Shmuel L. Schuman, CEO of HTC, presented the Rabbi Herman Davis Memorial Scholarships to two most deserving Beis Midrash and College students Noach Blechner from Boston, Massachusetts, and Joey Seif from Miami Beach, Florida.

The highlight of the evening was the keynote address by Rabbi Micah Greenland, International Director of NCSY. Rabbi Greenland's topic was, "Inspired Teens, Inspired Adults, Inspired Community." Rabbi Greenland spoke about an innovative four step process to transmit our commitment to the next generation. This process requires us to have a clear vision of a values based culture, create a long term perspective, develop an entrepreneurial spirit and constantly innovate. If we as parents can model good habits based on Torah values, we in turn can inspire genuine relationships with Hashem.
