NCSY, together with TMK and Block Yeshiva HS, will be running an educational program this year for students in both middle & high school grades. A number of advisors, including the NCSY International President, have joined us in St. Louis for Shavuot to help guide the students in their learning. We welcome all the NCSY advisors and leadership and thank them for helping add spirit and energy to our chag. The program will take place in the downstairs classrooms and social hall, and offer both co-ed and non co-ed learning opportunities.
