While most of us were still asleep, Steven “Lippy” Treitel’s day was already in full swing. As a commuter student in the evening program at Touro’s Lander College for (LCM), Steven would leave his home in Monsey, NY at 5:45am to make a 7am minyan at Meridian Capital Group, where he worked. Twice a week, he would then make the drive from Manhattan to Queens to take classes until 10:30pm, only to then make the hour-long drive back to Monsey.

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.

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.

Last night LCM student enjoyed “extreme bingo” and it was really sweet. Played with candy instead of bingo chips, it was truly a challenge to not eat the markers and make it to Bingo. For those that held out, there were tons of prizes, including nerf guns, clothing, and of course, candy. For those that couldn’t, there was still great food – pizza, sushi, and the candy bingo markers.

With sunny skies, a clear basketball court, plenty of green grass for football and soccer and pool ready and waiting, how could anyone not enjoy the shabbaton. Rabbi Shmulewitz, as usual, was parked by the lake, “fishing, not catching.” Students stopped by to throw out a line.
