PICTURE OF THE WEEK
ARTICLE OF THE WEEK
This week was filled with amazing Chanukah programs!!!! Including a surprise....COLOR WAR! At first, the middle school students did not believe it could actually be color war during winter! In the middle of Rabbi Menchel's d'var Torah, the lunch counter closed and the Color War sign was displayed. As soon as the students realized it was true, the ruach was palpable! Teams, Bitachon (blue), Tahara (yellow) and Gevura (red), competed in Apache races, basketball tournaments, chidon Chanukah as well as created impressive signs, videos and songs. Mazal tov to team Tahara on their victory. Yashar koach to generals, Nava Talitian, Josh Zahavi, Tehila Rabanipour, David Masturov, Mia Lebowicz and Gabi Joel Ghalandar, and lieutenant generals, Shayna Levian, Ariel Ganchrow, Meital Atlas, David Hanan, Daniella Toplan and Josh Ebrani, on their notable leadership skills. At Yeshiva Har Torah, "Everyone's a winner!!!" Thank you to Mrs. Allison Hus, our Director of Student Activities, for coordinating such an exciting and creative Chanukah Color War!
