The premed club hosted Dr. Carin Gribetz who spoke about dermatology. Dr. Gribetz began by explaining what dermatologists treat, the process she went through to become a dermatologist, and about common disorders of the skin. Alexa '23 then went into an in-depth discussion about skin cancer. This was very fitting because May is skin cancer awareness month. It was a very informative discussion and we are very appreciative of both of them for speaking to the club.

Not only does this water bottle prevent the overuse of disposable plastic water bottles which pollute the environment, but it allows every student to show off their school spirit. This might be a blow for the water-bottle vending machines at Ramaz, but it is clearly a win for the students and the environment! -Samantha S. '21

Our Torah Bowl had a unique opportunity to compete against the entire league last week. Students prepared the first three parshiot of Sefer Bamidbar with every Rashi and then met (socially-distanced) to join the Kahoot over Zoom. Our dedicated Torah Bowl-ers competed against over 200 students across the tri-state area, answering questions like: From when were the first-born males considered to be Hashem's?

Yashar Koach to all of the students for taking on this additional Torah learning!
