Camp Zev is Back in Town

February 11, 2015

For the third year in a row, some LCM students chose to stay on campus for winter break.  

Camp Zev, as it’s affectionately called (on behalf of its founder, Zev Kilstein) has been running every intersession break for the past several years to afford students the opportunity and provisions to comfortably stay in the dormitories throughout the vacation. While the program exists primarily to provide students with the necessities to keep learning even without the set structure of the academic year, Kilstein organizes fun, exciting trips to help keep the students motivated and, in essence, provide comic relief. The bein ha’zmanim program aims to have an appropriate ratio between learning Torah and taking time off to become revitalized for the next zman.

January 05, 2015

Chanukah is a bright spot on the LCM Calendar. And not just because of all the candles lit together on the fourth floor. There were gifts! And mesibas! And divrei torah! And mesibas! And food!
