After davening on Sunday morning, Rabbi Taubes addressed the student body to discuss the tense situation in Eretz Yisrael. He introduced Rabbi Eli Cohn, Maggid Shiur and Faculty Advisor for our Hatzioni Club, who informed students of the in-school Tzedakah campaign we were launching with the One Israel Fund. For every $36 donation, an IDF soldier will be provided with a pair of tzitzis, and in return the donor will receive an IDF pair of tzitzis as well. It is our hope that in the zechus of this mitzvah, the soldiers will have an added level of protection. Student response was incredible and within the first few days alone, students had donated well over $1,000 dollars. Chapters of Tehillim were also added to the conclusion of our regularly scheduled tefillos, and the Israel bulletin was updated daily with news and information.

Additionally, in response to the calling of the Rabbinical Council of America, Orthodox Union, and National Council of Young Israel to all Jews to increase their Torah study on Wednesday and Thursday, we dedicated all shiurim on Wednesday to this effort, and provided special optional morning learning programs in many communities, in which rebbeim live and their schedules allowed, on Thursday. The student turnout was fantastic, and the students appreciated this meaningful learning period as a start to their Thanksgiving holiday.
