Starting the week on a strong note, MTA had its annual Chanukah Chagigahon the sixth day ofChanukah, Rosh Chodesh Teves. It started off with a fantastic breakfast consisting of bagels, juice, doughnuts, and latkes. The dancing began soon thereafter, featuring the lively and spirited music of Eitan Katz, and we were joined by Yeshiva University President Richard Joel and Rav Moshe Weinberger, YU’s Mashgiach. Next, we were privileged to hear Rav Weinberger speak about the unique effect Chanukah has on the Jewish people; he shared some personal recollections of his father and his extraordinary connection to the mitzvah of tefillin, and explained how this holiday truly brings people to their roots. The dancing then began again with everybody having a great time. The chagigah ended on a musical note with the MTA Chorus and Band performing for everyone.
