n Tuesday, December 4, a group of MTA sophomores joined Yeshiva University’s Political Action Committee on a trip to Washington, D.C., to lobby Congress. Over the course of the day, they met with members of the House of Representatives to discuss the importance of America’s continued

support for Israel as well as the many security threats and challenges that Israel faces. Afterwards, they had the opportunity to explore Capitol Hill and tour the White House, where they heard from Special Representative for International Negotiations and MTA alum Jason Greenblatt (‘85), as well as other administration officials. After davening Mincha, the talmidim enjoyed dinner and Maariv at AIPAC headquarters before heading home.

Dearest Mother, I hope this letter reaches you in good health. There was no peace in Yeshiva Har Torah this Chanukah. As we gathered with our brethren for a Chanukah repast, we were taken by unexpected broadside when a dvar Torah from General Menchel became color war breakout. For two days, war raged. Our unit, Taharah, fought valiantly against two others, Bitachon

and Gevurah, including skirmishes of cheering, Torah, trivia, Apache relay, banners, performance of original scores, and sporting endeavors. I am pleased to report that although “everyone is a winner,” we eventually vanquished our enemies, and peace has returned betwixt the primary colors. Godspeed and please remember to feed the goats. Your son
