It’s been a great start to the Spring 2016 semester and so much more is yet to come!

43 Tefillin for Mendel’s 43rd was an amazing success! Well over 50 students participated, there was a great vibe and energy!  Raizy’s birthday (just a few days later) was celebrated at a “Proverbs Points to Ponder” class which Raizy led.

Thanks to the hosts and students who participated in our first-ever Hakhel-Halftime Superbowl offer. We got really nice feedback (from our campus and beyond) and we’re so happy it worked out. See our #HakhelHalftime Football Insights here.

There are a bunch of special events this February, at Shabbos House and in the UAlbany Jewish community. See February 2016 Events Schedule Highlights here.

On Sunday Feb 21st, we’re hosting a communal event titled “Global Hakhel and Nano Talmud Siyum” (signup RSVPs are appreciated) it’s a two hour program and luncheon, with the first hour featuring Bibi Netanyahu, Rabbi Lau, Rabbi Sacks, Mrs. Frankel and Rabbi Schochet, and the second hour a local celebration of daily Talmud study at Nanotech.
