LCM past meets LCM present for dinner

March 12, 2012

The LCM Alumni Council and the Student Government teamed up to run a series of dinners where students had the opportunity to pick the brains of successful alumni. The career advice is always helpful and the connections to those already working in an industry they’re interested in can be invaluable to their career. There were seven alumni dinners, each focusing on a different field: finance/accounting, dentistry, medicine, law, physical therapy, psychology and computers.

Banking on His Future

March 12, 2012

Jason Appleson's path to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) was anything but automatic. Born in Nashville, the 2008 Lander College for Men Finance grad moved to Cincinnati and then Chicago throughout his youth before finally arriving in NYC to attend Touro. All that transplantation to different territories, particularly as an Orthodox Jew, was “an interesting experience,” Appleson concedes. 

Sharing the Purim spirit

March 09, 2012

The devil himself, cowboys, Spiderman and others joined as well. As you can see, there were smiles all around.


February 28, 2012

And that’s what students did this past Motzei Shabbos at “The Motzei Shabbos Chill”. Video games, Madden, slushie and smoothie making, Dance Dance Revolution the Jewish version, board games, pizza, sushi, and just hanging out and more. Reaction post Motzei Shabbos? “That was fun.” Now repeat a few dozen times and you’ll get the idea.

Searching for Happiness in Adar

February 23, 2012

The month of Purim is most known for the phrase משנכנס אדר מרבין בשמחה (Mishenichnas Adar marbin b’simcha!) and Rabbi Cohen spoke about our seemingly elusive search for happiness. We live in a country, in an age, where everyone is looking for happiness and yet they can’t seem to find it. Rabbi Cohen said that happiness comes from feeling validated, from feeling that you are on the right track and doing the right thing. As Jews, through the Torah – our guide – we can reach happiness.

Chodesh Tov! (and Sameach!)

Our Football Team

February 22, 2012

by: Dean Herb Ratner

As the football season ends and the college recruiting begins, we must pay due to the Lander College for men football team. Well, Lander College for Men doesn’t actually have an official football team, but I have worked long and hard to mold these men into loyal Ducks fans. I believe I have been fairly successful. As a University of Oregon graduate, you understand I had to… so now there are 300 Jewish kids in Queens rooting for the University of Oregon Ducks. And who knows, maybe that’s why they’ve been playing so well this season! Go Ducks!

Welcome back bingo

February 08, 2012

In a tie a wheel was spun and the contestants had to compete in the way chosen (Price is Right, Dance Off, Speech Off, Physical Challenge, Quick Find, Mental Challenge). And of course, there were prizes.

February 08, 2012

Celebrating Tu b’Shvat in style, LCM brought in a popcorn machine, chocolate fountain and dried fruit, to be enjoyed along with Torah at Rabbi Bamberger’s Tu b’Shvat tisch last night.

Post finals/Pre-vacation breather

January 05, 2012

Students climbed out of their holes, clawed their way out of the library and saw the light of day (or evening) as they gathered for Rabbi Bamberger’s tisch to sigh with relief at the end of finals and look forward to a little vacation (and talk a little Torah).
