This Week @FrischSchool

Frisch Gildor Robotics team at the Club Fair
The atmosphere in the cafeteria on Wednesday afternoon buzzed with excitement as hundreds and hundreds of students visited this year's Club Fair, their opportunity to learn about and speak with students and faculty involved in the broad variety of extracurricular activities available to Frisch students. Please, if your child has not gotten involved in interesting and stimulating activities, urge him/her to do. Rabbi Staum, Rabbi Ciner and I are always happy to speak with students about their choices and would be more than happy to speak with parents who feel their child need a gentle push in the right direction.

Last night was the first after-school Mishmar night of the new school year. Well over one hundred young men and women from all four grades participated in Rabbi Wald's Shiur and the associated Chavruta learning. It was particularly nice to see freshman taking the time to study Torah with their Senior Big Brothers/Sisters. Please encourage your son/daughter to join us on Thursday nights. Although we cannot always produce the needed ride home, Rabbi Ciner does his best to find a way home for students who want to stay until 6:00 on Thursday evening and have no way home at that time.

On Monday, in anticipation of an important and one can only pray just moderately dreadful week at the UN, all of our students will participate in a presentation which will go into the details of the UN vote, what an affirmative vote will accomplish, the importance of the US's ability to veto, Israel's position (PM Netanyahu's speech), and the important distinction between this and the vote in 1947. Students will be signing online petitions to officials in the US, urging the government to veto the resolution. The program will also talk about Wednesday's Durban III Conference on Racism which inevitably will include a great deal of anti-Semitism in the guise of anti-Zionism. The entire senior class will be going down to the UN on Wednesday for a demonstration.

Ninth Grade parents stay tuned next week for news about the freshmen's first Chessed Day which is scheduled for Wednesday.

Shabbat Shalom, Dr. Kalman Stein
