High school students from across North America will develop their skills as tomorrow’s leaders at the bi-annual Eimatai Leadership Development Conference in Poyntelle, PA, on November 9-11. The gathering is an opportunity for students to discuss issues and challenges facing the Jewish community with a view to understanding how they can make a positive impact. This year’s theme will be “Citizen Jew vs. Jewish Citizen: Exploring a Dual Identity.”
Yonatan Frankel, who graduated from Yeshiva College last May, has a heavy workload as a rabbinical student at Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary but come the weekend he can often be found traveling to cities such as Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, Edmonton, or Calgary.
The role of Orthodox Jewish women today will highlight an April 18 discussion sponsored by Yeshiva University’s Stern College for Women. The lecture, “Breaking New Ground: Orthodox Women in the 21st Century,” will take place at 8 pm at YU’s Geraldine Schottenstein Cultural Center, 239-241 East 34th Street in Manhattan.
