The ReSurf mission is to help underprivileged children all over the world through surfing! The ReSurf Club at Ramaz is a way for student leaders to mentor troubled youth in the area and give them a sense of belonging, worth, and community. ReSurf clubs are run in many schools across the country and we're proud to have a club at our school. At our last ReSurf club meeting, we painted two surfboards that were donated to us. After displaying the boards at the ReSurf Chanukah event in Long Beach, NY, the boards have been donated to the children at the MLK Youth Center to use whenever they'd like.

The Upper School has had a meaningful mifgash with students from the Boyar High School in Jerusalem for these past two years, and was able to continue this tradition during Chanukah! This special time spent with the Boyar teens gave Ramaz students the opportunity to dialogue, socialize, and play ball with their Israeli peers. Three senior Hebrew classes met with the twenty-six Israelis (all juniors and seniors) and the theme was timely and relevant. Ms. Dana Barak, Hebrew Language Chair, introduced the discussion of, "American and Israeli Stereotyping: Common Images in the Cultures." The shared conversation was designed to challenge these images, and help to foster new and binding friendships, and it did...

This week, the Middle School Torah Bowl teams hosted three other schools for their second meet of the year. The students studied Parashiot Beshalach and Yitro, along with all of Rashi's commentary. The girls' team tied one game and lost three others (two by only one point!), while the boys' team won three of its games! Here is a sample question from Parashat Yitro: Question: What do we learn from the words לעיני כל ישראל (before the eyes of all Israel) at Mount Sinai? Answer: Rashi says this means that everyone could see, and that even blind people were healed at the giving of the Torah.

On Monday, the Middle School students ended Chanukah by expressing themselves through technology and the arts! First, the Middle School band, led by Oded Lev-Ari, performed a captivating Chanukah medley. Later, the sixth grade computer club, run by Ms. Miri Rubi, showed off their 3D printed dreidels. They competed based on different characteristics such as design, length of speed, and spinning upside down. Congratulations to the winners of the 3D dreidel contest and to 6th grader Charles G. who won the school wide dreidel spinning contest!

The Student Government officials worked hard and created a fun and festive carnival for the 1st and 2nd graders. The carnival was full of exciting Chanukah activities ranging from "Pin the Shamash on the Chanukiyah," to "Knock Down the Oil," to making a dreidel out of clay! The eighth graders had a great time manning the booths and Lower School students enjoyed going from activity to activity!

Last week, Middle School students and parents enjoyed a special "pray and learn" for Chanukah! Fifth graders and their parents prayed with Rabbi Epstein and Rabbi Weinstock, and were treated to breakfast and a shiur given by Rabbi Weinstock. Sixth and seventh graders enjoyed praying with Rabbi Levy and Rabbi Sommer. Following shacharit, grade 6 families participated in a chevrutah style learning session with Rabbi Levy, while grade 7 families heard a dvar Torah from Rabbi Laniado. Eighth graders davened with Rabbi Hagler and learned gemara with Ms. Tziporah Ross on the holiday of Chanukah. Sephardic students from all grades and their families prayed in the Sephardic minyan and then joined the rest of their grades for their respective shiurim. It was a wonderful communal experience where parents and students had the opportunity to celebrate in a meaningful way.

Ramaz is a school where students discover the best in themselves and in others, where they develop a lifelong love of learning, and where they use their gifts to make the world a better place.
