A Message from the

2012 is turning out to be an auspicious year, not only for me but also for my whole family. In 1964, my family and I were privileged to meet the world-renowned religious leader, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Looking back, it seems that the reason for my existence was to begin a process of reincarnation. For thirty years, a large part of my life, I was blessed with knowing one of the most beloved and respected Rabbis. His influence on my existence grows with each passing year, which is why 2012 has been another year of enrichment. The Rebbe, who assumed the leadership of the Lubavitch movement and led this movement until 1994, greatly expanded its worldwide activities and founded a worldwide network of institutions to spread Judaism among the Jewish people through education. For the past 48 years, I was a part of this movement and the great Lubavitch tradition. I was also very lucky to meet Dr. Rabbi Moshe Herson, the Dean of our college, whose friendship, commitment and determination created one of the World’s greatest educational institutions, the Rabbinical College of America. Along with Rabbi Herson, I have been privileged for almost half a century, to deal with a group of dedicated and committed men – namely the trustees of our institution. It is known and well recognized that every successful company or business is the direct result of the people who lead such enterprises. It is no different in our case, where the Dean, faculty and Rabbis have succeeded in bringing excellence and worldwide appreciation from students who attended and graduated our fine college. You, my dear friends, the men and women who compose the friends of the Rabbinical College of America who have attended tonight as you have done throughout almost the past half a century alongside Dean Herson - brought the institution to the highest scholastic achievement by working day and night to assure its success. This achievement was directly attributed to your commitment and generosity which, in turn, has resulted in thousands of graduated students who have gained knowledge, meaning and awareness because they attended and graduated the Rabbinical College of America. With your permission, I would like to acknowledge that without your help and financial support, the transformation that took place of a one room, 13-student school located on Graumann Avenue, New Jersey would not have been possible. It became a great educational facility, recognized and admired throughout the World. I need you to join me this evening in reiterating our on-going desire to make sure that the future of our college in Morristown, New Jersey will be secure and that no child will be left behind who cannot afford to pay tuition. This evening I’d like to take this opportunity to wish Mazel Tov to our distinguished honorees along with you and your families for a happy, healthy, prosperous and peaceful New Year. May the Almighty bless you and your families and continue to bless all of us with abundance of good health and wisdom. May we all continue to be worthy of it. May God bless our great Country, America, and may it continue to have the wisdom and ability to lead and be the counsel of other nations.


A Message from our

We have come together this evening to honor and pay tribute to long-time friends and supporters. Tonight’s honorees, Samuel A. Stern and John F.X. Graham are an inspiration for all of us to continue educating and inspiring our students and graduates to become community and spiritual leaders, thereby enhancing the Rabbinical College of America’s stature as “A Global Treasure” in the world of education and service to humanity. So much of what we have accomplished is in great part due to the devotion, dedication and vision of our Chairman of the Board, David Chase, a man of unusual talents and character. David is unable to be with us – we shall miss him. Thank you so much, to you our friends, supporters and indeed loyal “partners” whose care and concern is responsible for all our accomplishments. Your commitment makes our vital educational and outreach work possible. I am particularly grateful to our General Chairmen Phiilip Sellinger, Alfred DeCottiis, Jonathan Goldstein, Arnold Chait & Larry Reich. A lot has been done by the 48 Chabad Centers throughout NJ and the thousands of graduates/ shluchim serving around the globe for which we are very proud, but clearly there is more to do. The Rebbe’s words and teachings are our inspiration and marching order to “go from strength to strength.” (Psalms) We thank Al-Mighty G-d for all His blessings and pray that you and your loved ones be blessed with everything good, both spiritually and materially, now and in the future. At this time, may I wish each and everyone a most joyous, bright, safe and inspiring Chanukah Festival.

In his role of Executive Vice President with Reynolds SBI Inc—an international construction/ engineering company, Samuel A. Stern has made great impacts via his role in creating a much needed infrastructure for countries like Uganda. A true citizen of the world, Mr. Stern was born in Argentina then after spending his formative years in Israel moved to America . Today he and his family reside in New Jersey. Despite the demands of managing a multinational company as compelling as Reynolds SBI, Mr Stern still makes time for his philanthropic passions and hence is recognized both in the US & Israel. Blessed with a warm demeanor, Mr Stern’s ability to see and evaluate all sides of a project makes him invaluable both in the professional world—and the philanthropic one. Mr Stern is a close personal friend of our dedicated long time chairman of the board of trustees, Mr. David T. Chase.


In appreciation of my colleagues and fellow staff members who have worked tirelessly for the advancement of this institution and its goals .

A Global Treasure

Our students come from all over the world, from diverse cultural backgrounds. Their parents deliver their children to the College with the expectation that they will be provided with a complete and comprehensive program and that their personalities will be developed in a full and well-rounded manner. Our teachers are very special people. They fully understand and embrace their responsibility to their students. They are “on the job” twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. They meet with students during their “off” time to provide counseling and encouragement. They have their students’ needs in mind and meditate on what each one needs to fully develop his potential. For teachers at the Rabbinical College, their very lives serve as examples to the students as to how to live as a Jew, a husband, a father.

tual teachings and values of Judaism, particularly the unique philosophy of Chabad-Lubavitch Chassidism. The primary purpose of the Rabbinical College is to offer its students the opportunity to achieve excellence both in depth and breadth of Talmudic scholarship.

Beautiful Campus Setting The campus of the Rabbinical College of America is located in Morris Township, about one mile from the heart of Morristown. It is nestled in the same hills where George Washington headquartered some 200 years ago during the Revolutionary War. The College is situated on a beautiful 82-acre site. Students enjoy the relaxed atmosphere which enhances concentration and promotes intellectual growth. Three imposing buildings on the campus house classrooms, lecture halls, dormitories, administrative offices, library, dining hall, auditorium and facilities for worship. Basketball courts, an outdoor pool and athletic field, and an indoor gymnasium provide opportunities for sports and exercise.

application of Torah concepts to real life. Due to the students’ efforts, mitzvah observance and awareness in schools, clubs, hospitals, summer camps, and business offices has increased profoundly.

Spreading Yiddishkeit and Chassidishe warmth at every stop, these two young men have spent previous holidays in Sitka, Alaska, S. Cruz and Florida, always documenting their time on videos and posting them online. A result of this was their being contacted by Rabbi Hendel to come to Greece and assist him with Pesach and providing them with, in their own words, an amazing experience! There are about 3,000 Jews in Athens and many scattered throughout the rest of the mainland and islands. During their time in Greece, “they met many Jews, gave out lots of shmurah matzoh and put on tefilin with many members of the community.”

L-R: Pinchus Taylor and Berel Brafman in Athens, Greece

In addition to extensive Seder preparations that took a lot of time, kashering utensils, etc. a few of their activities included making a “kids day” where there was a matzoh bakery and lots of games with a Pesach theme. They went to the Israeli Embassy to meet with the Jews there. Possibly the most special event was printing Tanyas for the very first time in a city called Chalkida, on one of the Greek Islands. Berel and Pinchus spent the first Seder with about 200 people, a mix of natives and tourists, at the Novotel Hotel in Athens. The 2nd Seder was spent at Rabbi Hendel’s home with approximately 30 guests. Both of the young men agreed that they enjoyed the nine days they were in Greece very much and are looking forward to the next exciting opportunity to continue their amazing activities. The Rabbinical College is indeed very proud of the fine work being done by our students and alumni as they reach out to be of service in all areas of the world; becoming beacons of hope for the future to all those they come in contact with, spreading the light and love of Lubavitch for everyone to see and feel.

The thank you letter from Rabbi Hendel to the young men.

Understandably, we are quite proud of the many programs offered by the Rabbinical College.

the course of study offered at Morristown is basically

ment of two simultaneous, complementary goals.

that of any Rabbinical or Talmudical academy, except

These goals are, firstly, the acquiring of a significant

amount of broad-ranging knowledge and, secondly,

is devoted to the study of Chabad Philosophy.

the acquisition of an array of analytical tools and skills. Thus, the graduating student is equipped with the background and skills necessary to pursue a lifetime of Talmudic study. A key to the success of this program over the past 31 years has been the successful integration of both goals through a carefully selected sequence of courses combined with ever-increasing demands on the intellectual ability and developing skills of the beginning student

ADVANCED TALMUD PROGRAM/ TOMCHEI TMIMIM The Advanced Talmud Program is designed for young men with a secondary education in Jewish studies. Such students arrive at the institution with a strong

The core of the academic program lies in the area of Talmudic studies. A preponderant portion of the curriculum consists of the analysis of selected tractates of the Talmud which are studied for both in-depth comprehension and broad-ranging scholarship.

RABBINIC ORDINATION PROGRAM Students who have completed the five-year Advanced Talmud Program, which usually includes at least one year of shelichus, are eligible to enter the Rabbinical Ordination Program. However, due to limited capacity, the College can only accept a portion of those who qualify. This necessitates a selection process, which results in a highly motivated group of young scholars.
