In his clinical psychology internship at Queens Hospital Center’s Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Department, Jacob (more commonly known as Moshe) Weinger worked with elementary school children who had challenging psychological issues. “Kids came with a range of disorders spanning ADHD to PTSD, but the common denominator among them was that they all had some type of learning or behavioral disorder…We had children who are on the autism spectrum and those who just needed a little help getting ahead in school.” Most of them, he adds, were from low-income homes in Queens. “Some had sustained repeated abuse and neglect, and at least one (if not more) lived in a homeless shelter,” he said.

Back in the day we had our requisite fire drills and we were prepared. Unfortunately, the world is a scarier place and there have been too many school shootings. To be prepared for any scenario, LCM brought in an NYPD detective who gives active shooter training to educate students for such a scenario.

Rabbi Meir Shalem’s shiur on “Halachos of Gambling” was a great success and especially apt with active fantasy football betting pools nationwide. Rabbi Moshe Crystal gave his navi shiur on Sefer Shmuel Alef about Eli who would travel to the mishkan for the regel.

Rabbi Sacks shared words of chizuk, Dr. Sokol spoke, and the guys gathered round Rabbi Shmulewitz to reminisce about the good ol\' days of not that long ago.

This year’s student government elections were a no-nonsense, serious affair. Gone are the days of campaign speech promises that fall by the wayside as soon as you enter office. This year’s nominees vowed to make time for their constituents, listen to what they have to say and work hard on their behalf. Students responded with the highest voter turnout to date. And POTLCMSG* has almost as nice a ring as POTUS**.
