Open-and-Shut Cases Rav Dovid Bender, Rosh Kollel of the Yeshiva’s Kollel Tirtza Devorah, teaching the halachos of opening bottles and packages on Shabbos, to the seventh grade talmidim of Rav Dovid Frischman and Rav Mutty Zeiger. SCIENCE IN EARLY CHILDHOOD The Franklin Institute of Science came to make a presentation to the Pre-1A classes. The boys learned all about micro-gravity and space as the scientist demonstrated Newton’s Law of action/ reaction. Among other things, he launched a rocket ship and showed the boys an astronaut’s spacesuit. The event was sponsored by the Department of Education’s Title I program. 10 BEDARCHEI HATORAH FALL 5779/2018
