On Thursday we celebrated Rosh Chodesh Iyar with a special visit and shiur from noted sofer Rabbi Yisroel Kohn. The Shulchan Aruch mentions how often one should check mezuzot, but the lack of instructions for tefillin leads to a lot of discussion on how often they need to be checked. Rabbi Kohn delved right into that discussion and stayed throughout the day to check everyone’s tefillin.

It\'s been a long, hard winter. But if this weather\'s good for anything it\'s producing great skiing conditions. And so last motzei shabbos almost 40 guys boarded a bus at 1:30 A.M. and headed for the slopes of Killington, VT for a student government-subsidized ski trip. The lodge opened as the bus pulled in at 7 A.M., and we davened and ate breakfast before taking our skis and snowboards to the mountain. As the first ones on the lift, one gondola had an impromptu kumsitz on the way up. Some guys mastered moguls, others black diamonds and most of us wore snow-covered ski masks by mid-morning. It was a happy, weary group that gathered back at the lodge for mincha and dinner after the lift closed, and  after boarding the bus, we promptly fell asleep.

The cold is unrelenting, but we refused to let it put a damper on our Purim celebration. We got off to a rollicking start, barely waiting for alumnus Melech Berlove to finish reading the Megillah on Motzei Shabbos before breaking into spirited dancing in the Beis. While the cafeteria was being set up for the chagigah, students took to the streets of Kew Gardens Hills, dancing, singing and collecting tzedakah. Over the course of the week we raised a few thousand dollars for members of the community who could use a little help.
