Tune into YU’s Weekly Internet Radio Show, Thursdays at 2PM
Will you be ready if disaster strikes?
On their weekly live webcast from Furst Hall on the Yeshiva University campus in Washington Heights, Mayer Fertig and Miriam L. Wallach will host Ira Tannenbaum, director of public/private initiatives at the NYC Office of Emergency Management’s (OEM) Division of Health & Medical Planning and Preparedness. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from an expert about how to prepare yourself and your family for the unexpected.
Later on in the program, how many people have been in a committed relationship with something – not someone – for almost four decades? In his 39th season at YU and recently featured in the Wall Street Journal, Coach Johnny Halpert is a fixture on campus and certainly at the Max Stern Athletic Center. Mentor, guidance counselor, surrogate father and coach, Halpert has seen it all and has the stories to prove it. From running practices without baskets to coaching his own kids, listen as Fertig, Wallach and Coach Halpert discuss the upcoming annual Sarachek tournament featuring top Yeshiva high school teams from around the countr, YU basketball and the love of the game.
Also this Thursday, Rabbi Yosef Blau, mashgiach ruchani [spiritual advisor] at the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (RIETS) since 1977, will share a d’var torah, and you’ll hear about upcoming community events, and a roundup of interesting stories from the weekly Jewish newspapers.
