This past Shabbos, MTA Juniors in Rabbi Mendelson’s Shiur, along with Yeshivat Makor Chaim talmidim who spent the month learning at MTA, spent a meaningful and inspirational Shabbos at their rebbe’s home in Brooklyn.  A Friday morning tour of the Living Torah Museum set the tone for a Shabbos filled with learning and bonding, which included a yeshiva-wide Tisch on Friday night, divrei Torah, zemiros, and learning sedarim. The excitement continued on Motzei Shabbos with a trip to the Jewish Escape Room, a Melava Malka, and a great shiur from MTA faculty member Rabbi Brownstein.  On Sunday morning, the Makor Chaim talmidim closed out the fantastic Shabbaton with a Blitz, which began with an interactive icebreaker, followed by a thought-provoking discussion encouraging talmidim to explore their thoughts and opinions, and ending with a moving kumzits.  Talmidim truly enjoyed this memorable experience and look forward to building on its momentum throughout the rest of the year.
