Teach NYS Long Island and Far Rockaway held its first dinner Sunday night in the Five Towns.
The event took place at the Woodmere Club, honoring TAG parents Mr. and Mrs. Binyamin Wolfson, HALB parents Mr. and Mrs. John Katz and HAFTR parent and head of STEM, Benny Gross.
“I don’t remember an event that brought together every school and Yeshiva leadership from day schools to Bais Yaakovs”, noted Rabbi Moshe Brandsdorfer.
The unique part of the event, was that all of the awards and tokens of appreciation given out, were built in the STEM labs by the mechanical equipment in the respective schools.
Maury Litwack shared the following:
