Last week a powerful storm ripped through North Miami Beach, knocking out the Yeshiva's Internet and phone lines. Needless to say, the Alumni Newsletter never made it out. This week's is a culmination of the two.

A great deal of effort is being put in to preparing for this year's 3rd Annual Alumni Event in New York this coming Sunday, December 27th. Our excellent committee of alumni in New York are working hard on getting the program just right. Click here to see 5 reasons you don't want to miss this event. Look below for two more reasons. Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday. You really won't want to miss it!

Hope you enjoy the pictures below.

1st Yartzeit Commemoration for Dr. Abe Chames Z"L

This month, the community marked the first Yahrtzeit of Dr. Abe Chames - Avraham Zev ben Yaakov Z"L. A special evening of inspiration and chizuk was held in the Yeshiva to commemorate the occasion. The evening began with our Rosh HaYeshiva, Rabbi Yisroel Y. Niman, completing Mishnayos Seder Nashim in memory of Dr. Chames. The hundreds assembled heard divrei chizuk from world renowned author Rabbi Hanoch Teller and Rabbi Shaya Cohen, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas Zichron Aryeh, Cedarhurst, New York.  Rabbi Avrohom Yachnes publicized the formation of a special chesed organization, Chesed Avraham Zev - The Dr. Abe Chames Foundation, that will support Torah education, Torah educators and a variety of chesed needs that often go undetected. At the conclusion of the program, our Rosh HaYeshiva, Rabbi Binyomin Luban, announced that in recognition of all that the Chames family has done and continues to do for the Yeshiva, the High School division will be bear the name of Dr. Chames.

Nearly 500 people came to commemorate a legend.
