Noam’s 11th Annual Outing Supports Scholarship Fund

The Yeshivat Noam 11th Annual Outing was a resounding success on July 25 at White Beeches Golf and Country Club in Haworth, NJ. In addition to 90 golfers enjoying a beautiful day on the course, over 30 women attended the activities of the day: “Cardio and Core” with Rachel Ashendorf, a beautiful lunch and massages on the terrace, and the “Chopped’ cooking competition by Nachum Segal Network radio host and cooking personality Naomi Nachman.

The event co-chairs responsible for this success were David Isaacson and Akiva Romanoff. Working in partnership with past event chairs Jason Suss and Jonathan Gellis, these dedicated leaders spent hours recruiting golfers and managing event logistics. Some of the many highlights of the day were the giveaways, including an orange Nike dri-FIT golf shirt, a blue dri-FIT T-shirt from event sponsor The Rothenberg Law Firm, InjuryLawyer.com, golf balls sponsored by Kindersmiles, stress balls donated by Borger Financial Services, tees donated by TD Bank and a bag sponsored by Chestnut Holdings and Jacob Solomon Employee Benefits.

The golfers opened the day with a putting green contest. The three winners were Ethan Keiser, Marc Rothenberg and Chanan Vogel. At the end of the outing, which ended after about 14 holes due to thunderstorms, golfers were awarded prizes for closest to the pin, longest drive and lowest scoring foursome.

The afternoon event “Chopped,” led by Naomi Nachman, was one of the highlights of the day. Yeshivat Noam moms competed in three teams against each other to use creative ingredients, such as popcorn and marshmallow fluff, to make a delicious meal. Team One was Tamar Rothenberg and Rena Zelig, Team Two was Rachel Cyrulnik and Stefanie Diamond, and the Winning Team was Leora Cohen and Shulamit Holzer. The cooking was all done on-site and judged by Yeshivat Noam moms Chavie Hagler and Batya Paul, as well as Yeshivat Noam Executive Director Enid Anziska.

The money raised at the outing supports the scholarship fund. Approximately 20-25 percent of students are recipients of financial assistance each year. The co-chairs of the on-site raffle and the online Bidding for Good auction, Dalia Stelzer and Rena Zelig, were an integral part of raising important funds for Yeshivat Noam. Some of the big-ticket items included Adele tickets, Billy Joel tickets, a foursome at Liberty National Golf Club, in addition to the 100+ other prizes that were awarded!

According to Director of Development Amy Vogel, “Events such as outings, raffles and auctions are a tremendous undertaking for any organization and require the dedication of a large number of volunteers. At Yeshivat Noam, we are blessed with a parent body that is dedicated and committed to helping our school and our students thrive.”
