“Singing, dancing, food, meeting the roshei yeshiva—what more could you want?” said Dani Weiss, a shana alef student at Yeshivat Torat Shraga and an enrolled honors student at Yeshiva University. “I truly enjoyed the opportunity to establish a kesher [connection] early on with the roshei yeshiva. To be able to interact with them in such a warm atmosphere was extraordinary.”
