All Good Things Must Come To An End

To the roughly 2,000 people who visited these pages - Goodbye and Thank You !

Your feedback, your enthusiasm, your responsiveness are things that will be treasured always. I am thrilled that this blog was able to share so much and reach so many in such a short period of time - proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that the BTI spirit is as indomitable as always.

I will sorely miss this and any other zany project that has been sent your way - my only wish is that we all continue to assimilate the goodness that was achieved into our personalities and into our actions.

Wishing you Hatzlacha Rabba in all your endeavors,


Rabbi Yoav Druyan
the (formerly phantom) BTI Reporter

Food, Folks and ... ( you thought I was gonna say fun - didn't you ? )

Well, the feedback is in.
Last Thursday the Grand Gala Gezunt fest at dougies was a huge success ! According to several eyewitnesses - there was enjoyment everywhere.
Mrs. Fuld spoke about the value of Torah while Tziporah Rabinowicz ( BTI '03-'06 ) introduced the graduates to an entire spectrum of chessed and worthwhile activities that are available in their areas.
The general consensus preferred the fire-poppers to the wings, but all acknowledged the ribs as king.
Much excitement is also building up towards the new alumnae pow-wow at the house of Lisa Okun.
The address is 75- 08 172nd St. in Hillcrest, NY. The activities start at 7:30 pm.

We would like to post pictures - but WE HAVE NONE ! If you have good pictures please email them to SharfmansAlumni@gmail dot com !

With these words - we send you out into the world !

Banquet for the shanna betters was a lavish affair ! There was everything you could imagine in a banquet - food, inspiration, food party hats, food, in short, everything !

At the the real Shanna Bet Banquet (not pictured so as not to flaunt the fancy catered affair, tzniyus, you know. ) Rabbi Sharfman gave words of chizzuk and vision.

Part of his message to the graduating students focused on how we accomplish goals in our life and what role siyaata dishmaaya plays.

And the best news is ... it's the newest added shiur on the right taskbar !

Listen and enjoy !

Hope you're having a great summer !
