Yeshiva Derech HaTorah High School, Broooklyn

Question: Where do you think you’ll study after high school? 


 


 

 

 


I plan on attending yeshiva for a year or two and then enrolling in college. I’d want to go somewhere local — perhaps Queens College, since my mother is an alumni. I would like to attend college while simultaneously going to a local yeshiva part time. After my education, I’d like to go into real estate since that’s where one can really become a success, especially in New York.

 I think I’ll go to Israel for a year to further my Jewish studies and then attend college. I think I’ll come out a different person after spending a year in Israel, with a deeper appreciation and understanding of the Torah. Once I’m in college I hope to major in accounting.

I’m thinking of going to Brooklyn College since I don’t want to go to school too far from home. My sisters went there and majored in business; thank God they are doing well today with their own stores in the neighborhood. I don’t want to limit myself to business, however, and I do plan on exploring other areas of learning. I also want to include Israel in my plans — maybe not for a whole year, but definitely for a month or two to travel and learn.

I’m really interested in exploring culinary school. I think it would be really cool to learn how to master cooking and then work on revamping the kosher menu. I also want to visit Israel since I’ve never been there. My main goal is to open up my own business.

In the face of evil, we can do acts of kindness. We can do good deeds.

I realized that I am an integral part of that man who wished to win – I am also a part of a nation; I felt like I was standing there and shouting, “I won.”

As I powerfully belted out the song, Ani Maamin B’emunah Sheleima – which means “I believe in God with full faith” – a thought suddenly crossed my mind.

I do not suggest abandoning civilization for a pristine desert island or a hilltop in Judea or Samaria.

Orlando was once a place where people came only to visit and vacation. Now it is home to a burgeoning Torah community, a place Jewish families can be proud to call home.

You’re not seeking perfection. You’re seeking a life that an average person can manage and feel good about. Don’t feel pressure to change everything at once.

In a time when service to one’s community seems to be a forgotten ideal, it is our pleasure to continue sharing with you the stories of those men and women who were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.

The Jewish Press recently sat down with Chaya Lipschutz, a Brooklyn woman who saved the life of a stranger.

In the past, people used to turn to coffee or orange juice to get through a midday slump, but today, many are turning to power and energy drinks for a quicker and longer-lasting jolt. The power drink industry is booming with projected sales of $9 billion and no sign of slowing down anytime soon.

Every week nearly three million viewers tune into the Bravo cable channel to watch the hit reality franchise “The Real Housewives” – several shows that follow the lives of affluent housewives and professional women residing in several American metropolitan areas (“The Real Housewives of New York,” “The Real Housewives of Los Angeles,” of Miami, of Atlanta, etc.).

Not too many Jewish World War II survivors from Germany can say that they had the distinction of being both interned in a concentration camp and liberating the captives in that same camp. Erwin Weinberg did just that.

Recently I had the opportunity to spend some times with Bernard (Bernie) Walz and get a glimpse of his war experiences.

As I approached the home of Irving and Miriam Borenstein in the Mill Basin section of Brooklyn, two things became clear: the pride they feel at being Jewish and their joy at living in America. On their front lawn are large American and Israeli flags with a plaque in front which reads:

Never forget the six million murdered in the Holocaust and the three thousand murdered on 9/11.

May G-d remember them for the good with the other righteous of the world.
