A Word from the Director: 2/4/2011

It’s Super Bowl XLV and we are having our annual Super Bowl Party (without beer). The boys are excited and we will hopefully have two big screens showing it in two different venues in the building this year. We will of course have lots of food and nosh and hopefully even have a mincha minyan during some boring commercial.

In other Aish Tamid news, our gym is progressing and this week we plan on doing some minor construction to enlarge a room downstairs. Our goal is to have five or six different exercise options in the room. We are really excited about it and we want to thank Elliott Dolin for all his time and effort and making this project into a reality. Anyone interested in getting involved should please get in touch with me at the office. Also, we are looking for another flat screen TV for the gym. Anyone interested in donating one should please be in touch with me.

Thank you again for those that have offered job opportunities to our students. We have recently placed some boys in temporary and permanent jobs. We look to you, our community, to hire these boys and give them a chance to be successful. A student - let me rephrase - two students came over to me and gave me some money. When I asked, “what is this for?” they said “it's maaser from the job that you helped us out with.” For me, there is no bigger sign of appreciation as when they come and give a little back.

Finally, we have a student who is soliciting money for himself, going door to door and stating that he is a student of Aish Tamid. We do not suggest that you give him money and that he should be in touch with us.

Have a wonderful Shabbos!

Rabbi Gavriel Hershoff
