The Psychology Club welcomed Avi Golden to speak about Aphasia, a disorder in the part of the brain that controls language. In 2007 the then-33-year-old Golden suffered a stroke that left him unable to speak. Through a rigorous schedule of rehabilitation—including six hours in speech therapy every day—Golden regained the ability to speak, though with great difficulty and several limitations. For instance, Golden cannot remember names, at least as they pertain to speech itself. That is, other than members of his immediate family, if he sees someone, even a close friend, he can’t say their names. The information is still in his brain but trapped in the pathways between his memory and his ability to speak, so he could still write the name down on a piece of paper and then read it aloud. About 40 guys came to hear Golden, who still enjoys snowboarding and horseback riding as he did before the stroke,  talk about his condition and recovery.

This week’s in Shabbos with Rav Shmulewitz was highlighted by the annual cholent cook-off and the first-ever bake-off. Eleven cholents—some sweet, some spicy and some just really fatty—and 16 desserts were entered into the competition. As with the popular and electoral votes that don\'t always match up, defending champion Avrumi Weiser won the people\'s vote for top cholent and walked away with the "Golden Crockpot," but Rav Shmulewitz, the discerning but fair judge, declared a tie between Weiser and Clarence Wilcox, for which they split the $100 Visa gift card.

The guys observed a Thanksgivukah Extravaganza to celebrate the one-time cultural phenomenon in the form of a feast celebrating both festive occasions. Representatives of four countries—the U.S., Israel, Canada and Belarus—enjoyed heaping portions of turkey, stuffing, roast beef and of course latkas. For some reason vegetables were served, too. After going around the table so everyone could say what they were thankful for, they lit candles and sang Chanukah songs. They would have sung Thanksgiving songs, too, if only anyone knew any. Miraculously, the leftovers lasted eight days (hat tip: Tzvi Norowitz!).

On Wednesday, the Lander College Bioethics Society held its inaugural lecture called “M.D.: To Be or Not to Be. A Halachic Perspective.” Rabbi Dr. Howard Apfel, a board certified pediatric cardiologist at Columbia University Medical Center and an expert in the field of medical ethics, spoke about whether a Jew is allowed to become a doctor. As Rabbi Apfel said at the beginning, it’s pretty obvious how he holds given that he’s a doctor, but the issue isn’t so cut and dry.

Students and faculty came out in force for the Lander College for Men annual Chanukah Mesibah. After Maariv and candle lighting, we came back to the Beis to hear a Chanukah shiur by Rabbi Doniel Lander on the nature of the pirsumei nisah of Chanukah in contrast to the pirsumei nisah of Purim, and then headed upstairs for the party. While listening to the unmistakable sounds of the Lander Band, we danced for upward of an hour—sometimes circle, sometimes break, sometimes interpretive—only slowing down when the arrival of the food from Carlos and Gabby’s coincided with physical exhaustion. Students danced with Rebbeim, Rebbeim danced with students and just about everyone danced with a smiling Rav Parnes, creating the type of pure, organic ruach that cannot be manufactured or replicated.
