22 MTA Community Members Receive Semicha at RIETS Chag HaSemikhah

(Courtesy of MTA) MTA is proud to announce that 22 members of its yeshiva community received semicha at the RIETS Chag HaSemikhah on October 31, celebrating the ordination of the Classes of 5778-5780. Nineteen members are alumni, which is the highest number of musmachim from any yeshiva high school, and three are current MTA rebbeim.

“We are incredibly proud of our alumni who received semicha at this historical event and continued to build upon the strong Torah foundation that began during their time at MTA,” said Head of School Rabbi Joshua Kahn. “It is particularly meaningful for us to also have four of our beloved rebbeim—Rabbi Yisrael Apfel (’08), Rabbi Evan Genachowski, Rabbi Baruch Schonbrun and Rabbi Yoni Stone—receive semicha in our very own building, where they serve as role models and inspire their talmidim every day.”
