MTA Freshmen Take on the Woods

On Thursday, October 22, three buses filled with excited Yeshiva University High School for Boys freshmen headed to Norvin Green State Forest for the Freshman Hike, on what would be an unforgettable day.

Upon their arrival, students streamed off the buses in anticipation of the hike. Thanks to beautiful weather and great leadership from several Rebbeim and faculty members, the excursion was incredible. Led by Mr. Sragow, the students trekked through the woods—across rivers, through trees, up mountains—and bonded as a group. Students were amazed by the beautiful views, including the New York City skyline, and huddled up for many pictures together. The achdus was palpable, as one could constantly see students helping each other through difficult parts of the hike.

Following the hike, the students were exhausted. They hopped on the buses and headed over to Greenview Park where they played some sports, hung out, davened mincha and enjoyed a tasty barbecue. The boys were happy to end the day on such a high note. Each student felt fulfilled that he was able to complete the hike. Even more so, each was happy to make new friends with whom he will spend his time in MTA.
