On Tuesday night, a secret operation was conducted in the shadowy hallways of MTA. The Israeli members of the Makor Chaim Exchange Program, in the cover of the darkness, snuck into the library with seemingly nefarious intentions. When the MTA student body came in the next morning, they found the entire library decorated with banners and chains, celebrating the coming of Purim.

Later that morning, the ninth grade gathered with the Makor Chaim fellows, as well as alumni of the program, for a special event. The freshman were split into small groups and each had the opportunity to learn a little about Purim from an Israeli, and to gain a little bit of the Israeli Makor Chaim spirit. The program was an excellent success, and we applaud our Israeli guests for their tremendous devotion to their adopted school, MTA.
