This past Sunday, MTA was filled to the brim with food, jubilance, and most important, prospective students at the annual MTA Open House. This year’s program kicked off with a delectable breakfast of donuts, danishes, fruits, and coffee, after which parents and students filtered into Lamport Auditorium where they were greeted with an expertly crafted video presentation and words from Head of School Rabbi Kahn, parent speaker Mrs. Shoshana Schechter, mother of Yoni (’15) and Yedidya (’19), and student speaker Zeve Kornwasser (’18). The next segment of the program involved separate parent and student groups, led by current MTA students, going around the building to hear presentations from an array of faculty members focusing on MTA’s captivating curricular and co-curricula offerings. Following this, everybody met up at the Curricular Fair in Belfer Hall’s Weissberg Commons where mouth-watering Carlos and Gabby’s food and tables with information about the school awaited them. The ambiance was spectacular; with Mordechai Shapiro (’07) music in the background – perhaps foreshadowing his appearance at the MTA Shabbaton this coming Shabbos – parents and students were able to mingle with MTA teachers and student ambassadors. With such a huge turnout, this year’s MTA Open House was an unqualified success and we hope to see many of the visiting students join the Class of ’21!
