Former students from all over the country enjoyed a night of catching up with friends, seeing rebbeim, hearing divrei Torah and, well, steak.

Josh Simons decided to forgo the Opal gym and bench-pressed weights, using people instead. He started at 120lbs and went up to 230lbs.  And yes, you saw correctly. That was Dean Ratner Josh put over his shoulder.

(Congratulations to the winning couple! May you have many years of good learning ahead of you!)
