HIGHLIGHTS 3RD GRADERS ENTER TORAH SHEB’AL PEH WITH SONG AND COLOR To celebrate the initiation of the third grade talmidim in the study of Mishnayos as well as Rashi’s peirush on Chumash, the Yeshiva held grand events with the participation of the boys’ parents and grandparents. The talmidim – divided into groups – sang inspiring songs about Rashi HaKadosh and the first Mishnah in Berachos, with each group dressed in colorful costumes that served as distinct representations of the subjects of their singing. TALMIDIM STAND OUT AT SCIENCE COMPETITION TWO MESIVTA CHAIM SHLOMO STUDENTS WON A PRESTIGIOUS PRIZE AT THE CIJE SCIENCE COMPETITION. L-R: RAV MENACHEM GOLD, PRINCIPAL OF THE MESIVTA; DAN YAAKOV HONIG (HOLDING THE WINNING INVENTION); YISROEL ROSENBERG; AND DR. DON ENGELBERG, PHYSICS INSTRUCTOR AT THE MESIVTA. 8 BEDARCHEI HATORAH FALL 5779/2018 Mesivta Chaim Shlomo’s ninth and tenth graders took second prize in the consumer products category at the prestigious sci- ence competition held by the Center for Initiatives in Jewish Education (CIJE) at the New York Hilton. The competition in- cluded 39 schools and over 1,200 students. Only 12 schools took home awards – including Mesivta Chaim Shlomo. The winning duo of Dan Yaakov Honig and Yisroel Rosenberg were recognized for their invention of a tablet designed primarily for students in underdeveloped countries. It has an espe- cially user-friendly interface and its casing is made of a material, manufactured by Dan Yaakov on a 3D printer, which is extremely protective of the product, yet cheap enough to produce and re- main affordable for the target population. Special credit is due to Dr. Don Engelberg, program coordinator and physics instructor at the Mesivta, for his leadership and guidance.
