Warmth and love of Yiddishkeit at YOSS kumzitz


On Motzei Shabbos, Parshas Lech Lecha, the sixth grade at Yeshiva of South Shore joined their rebbe, Rabbi Yehoshua Meltzer for an exciting kumzitz.

This special event took place at the Woodmere home of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Schuckman, parents of Eli, a talmid in the class. The boys partook of a delicious melava malka and then went outside to be warmed by the heat of a bonfire, roasting marshmellows and making smores. Most importantly they were uplifted by the niggunim that they sang, and the live professional music that accompanied them.

Eli Schuckman played along with his drums and Shuey Wald played the bongo. The boys were treated to a special visit by the Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Mordechai Kamenetzky, who came to participate with the talmidim and share words of chizuk. Dovid Tzvi Daskel, Dov Hirsch, Yehuda Kestenbaum and Eli Schuckman delivered inspiring words of Torah.

The kumzitz offered the boys a unique way to spend time with their rebbeim and friends, while infusing  themselves with a love of Yiddishkeit and Torah.

The yeshiva has tremendous appreciation to the Schuckman family and to Rabbi Meltzer for preparing this amazing event.
