Yom Iyun and Flowers

Before Shavuos the Girls Division had a Yom Iyun highlighting the Yom Tov. Rabbi Asher Biron, Rabbi Zev Rauch, Rabbi Yonah Solomon and Mrs. Miriam Rosenbluth were educational facilitators.

The Yom Iyun was followed by an art project to make beautiful flower centerpieces. Many thanks to the Granovits family for providing the flowers.

As a special project for the 12th graders, Mrs. Hedy Harris, the art teacher, demonstrated to the girls on how to make edible centerpieces using vegetables.

Back Home

Tuesday 2:45

We returned to Valley Torah a bit sleep-deprived, but earlier than expected. This should give each of the boys time to catch-up on their sleep so they can make it to school tomorrow at 7:45 (yes, it is a regular school day with a regular schedule).

All the pictures from the Shabbaton can be seen at vths.fotki.com.

Mist Trail

Overheard on the Mist Trail (said by a teenager): “This is the most exciting thing I have ever done in my life.” The Mist Trail did not disappoint us this time. It was a steep climb up the side of a granite mountain while being blasted by the spray from Vernal Falls. The pictures speak louder than words.

Exciting day

Sunday 9:00
We finally arrived at the hotel in Oakhurst after a very long day. We drove through the Yosemite Valley and visited Yosemite Falls. The falls were roaring! As we were there, it began to rain. At higher elevations, it was snowing and the road to Oakhurst was closed. The detour added about two hours to our travels.

We are waiting for the coals to warm up on the grill so we can have our dogs and burgers.

More news and pictures soon.
