Preparing Tomorrow's Innovators

February 27, 2014

By her own admission, Ann E. Shinnar is a tough professor. She even sees it as a “badge of honor,” because in her mind, that means her students are well prepared for a life in science and “understanding how they can take observation and make conclusions.” As a Lander College for Men associate professor of chemistry and deputy chair of the chemistry department, Dr. Shinnar’s main goal is to show those in her lab “what kind of mastery they need to accomplish” to find order amid the universe’s randomness, in the hopes of their doing groundbreaking work. That’s why Dr. Shinnar takes such pride and responsibility in her job. “The mark of a teacher is someone who not only knows the material, but can explain it in detail and convey the important and beauty and excitement of that particular discipline.” 

Scattered Across the Nation

February 18, 2014

Miami, Memphis, Dallas, Detroit, Toronto, Ramat Beit Shemesh, Baltimore. Lander alumni traveled from far and wide to attend the 5th Annual LCM Alumni Shabbaton this past President’s Day weekend. The theme was “Scattered Across the Nation” and the shabbaton was truly an ingathering of the masses.

The Good Old Days, in Jersey

February 11, 2014
About twenty guys gathered this past Sunday for the second annual North Jersey Alumni Brunch. 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. With graduates from Lander's first class (2003) to the most recent, it was a great time to catch up and spend time with friends and mentors. 
 

Magic Mehl

February 10, 2014

All it took was a little magic to rev us up for the Spring semester after winter break disappeared. The Amazing Alex Mehl was up to the task and, as the saying goes, we could not believe our eyes. Among the highlights:

Super Mishmar Takes on the Super Bowl

February 10, 2014

It was the first time the Super Bowl was played in NY/NJ, in a cold weather outdoor stadium, but Super Mishmar was a return in Queens, in the warm beis medrash at LCM. While some watched the disappointing game, many headed to the beis medrash. Mimon Mamane says the turnout was awesome, and the room was packed. 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.

Sun & Snow Over Winter Break

February 10, 2014

As finals dwindled down, Lander Men headed off campus for a couple of weeks vacation. Some traveled home to see family, some stayed local, some continued learning at Lander, and some set off in search of sun or snow (yes, despite the winter we’re having, snow).

The first thing every prospective LCM student ought to know is that he will receive a top-notch education. But as 75 students who came to the recent melave malkah in Israel learned, they can also expect Torah, chevra, ruach and a whole lot of food.

January 15, 2014

Aaron Benia won the Lander College Stock Market Challenge. Again. This is not a recording.

Benia, a psychology major, has now won three of the last four contests, this time coming out on top with a ridiculous 28 percent return on investments.

Alumni Catch Up and Heat Up

January 13, 2014

The First Annual South Florida Reunion took place last week at RARE Steakhouse in Miami Beach. Thank you to event chairs Ben Tabaria and Mordy Landesman for organizing the get together, which was both fun and tasteful (both meanings apply, but we’re really talking about the food). Jordan Lahav, Yoshua Attia, Yakov Hill, Jeff Malley, Gavi Berman, Johnny Chames and Josh Fox, in addition to Ben, Mordy and LCM Director of Alumni Affairs Aryeh Young, met up at RARE to reconnect, catch up and fill up. We’ll X off the days until next year’s reunion and stay in touch in the meantime!
