LCM Celebrates Chanukah on Campus

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! And did we mention mesibas?  It started on the first day of Chanukah, when students received their annual Chanukah gift from Lander’s Student Government—LCM-emblazoned winter beanies!

As if the past week’s Chanukah celebrations weren’t enough, LCM partied it up some more (and ate more, too!) at the past in-Shabbos hosted by Rabbi Shmulewitz. As per tradition, the in-Shabbos featured LCM’s favorite annual competitions, the cholent cook-off and dessert bake-off.

Anything But a Washout

May 20, 2014

Hello, Muddah! Hello, Fadduh!
Here I am at Camp Granada.
Camp is very entertaining,
And they say we'll have some fun if it stops raining.
Wait a minute!
It's stopped hailing.
Guys are swimming.
Guys are sailing.
Playing baseball.
Gee! That's better.
Muddah, Fadduh, kindly disregard this letter!

(excerpt from Allan Sherman’s “Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh”)

Well, it was Camp Dora Golding, not Camp Granada. And the rain didn’t stop. But a little (lot) of rain didn’t hold back LCM guys from having buckets of fun at our annual schoolwide Shabbaton!
