That's all for now, but we'll update you with the rest later.

A new mivtza had been introduced, following the Chitas-Club mivtza, it's a Seder Sichos/Inyonei Geulah umoshiach seder three times a week, and one of them being a shiur. Well many of the bochurim participated, and were rewarded for their steady and uncompromising attitude towards the mivtza. They were taken to a place called "Funtastics", where they were treated to a couple of rounds of go-carting, and then the bochurim were able to enjoy themselves with whatever way their heart desired at that given moment.

The Shluchim got to enjoy themselves immensely too at the "Funtastics" trip today.


Yup, it's that time of the year again! Judah Maccabe with his famous olive press is back in Tucson, a very educational, interactive, hands-on show which teaches and actually let the kids experience a genuine feeling as if they were there at the time of the original story. The part of Judah is played by Hatomim Hashliach Levi Lipskar, a funny, charismatic, enthusiastic, and energetic person, which makes him a perfect candidate for the role.

Lots of mivtzoim was done following the show which was done in the mall in collaboration with the chanukah fare that was happening there.
A beautiful farbrengen had been conducted in honor of Tes Kislev, by a shliach that came all the way from the holy land. Rabbi Lieberman who is originally from Chicago, now residing in Ashkolon, farbrenged with the bochurim, in a very practical and interactive way. In short: he was great. After farbrenging with the kids for a couple of hours, he farbrenged with the shluchim, and was enjoyed by them very much.


What a shame! Such a beautiful shabbaton, but not enough evidence. Last shabbos the Chabad of Phoenix hosted the yeshivah to a wonderful shabbaton, but due to our religious standards, we were not permitted to take any photographs throughout the shabbos. But what about Friday, and Sunday you ask? Well this, I guess just shows how much fun everybody was having that be barely even had time to stop and think about taking pictures, that's a good sign. We did manage to scramble together a few pictures, but don't worry there was more and other fun throughout the rest of the shabbaton.
