Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

On Lag B’Omer, TABC students and faculty had a blast at American Dream and then enjoyed a delicious Wandering Que lunch back at school in honor of the chag. Additionally, TABC talmidim and rebbeim hit the softball field for some friendly shiur vs. shiur competition. Rabbi Duvie Nachbar’s shiur faced off against Rabbi Yoni Mandelstam’s shiur at Sagamore Park. Eitan Lefkowitz had the hit of the game with a long shot to center field and Binyamin Wenger had the catch of the day as he caught a deep fly ball in an impressive basket catch. In another notable matchup, Rabbi Shlomo Stochel’s shiur faced off against Rabbi Yakov Grun’s shiur at Votee Park, with Rabbi Grun’s team taking the win!

Also on Lag B’Omer, Ivrit classes went back to the time of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. Led by their morot, Dorit Hanan and Chaya Glaser, the students discussed the meaning of this special day and the reasons behind the different minhagim that are unique to Lag B’Omer. After the students learned more about the history of the day they tested their new knowledge in a Lag B’Omer-themed Kahoot.

Finally, talmidim, along with their rebbe Rabbi Jake Berman, traveled to the Five Towns on Lag B’Omer to attend the Hilula of Rashbi, led by Rav Moshe Weinberger of Aish Kodesh. Tradition records that on the day of his death, Lag B’Omer, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai (Rashbi) revealed to his students the deepest secrets of mysticism, which set in motion a day of celebration and rejoicing. With nearly 3000 in attendance, the evening was infused with inspiration with a performance by Rav Eitan Katz, Torah from Rav Weinberger and leibidik dancing throughout.
