Purim Mesiba – An eMAYzing Event!

On Motzaei Taanis Esther, Mesivta Ateres Yaakov held their annual Purim Mesiba. An event not to be missed, the evening included delicious refreshments, live music, a talent competition, a costume contest, and a Purim shpiel compliments of the senior class and the rebbeim of the Mesivta. It was definitely an a-MAY-zing event by all counts.


The evening began with enthusiastic dancing in true Adar spirit as the live music enhanced the atmosphere. It was a heart-warming and uplifting for all those who participating! Talmidim arrived at the Mesivta in full Purim gear, posing for pictures and videos together with their rebbeim.

Rabbi Yaffe conducted his annual costume contest in which over 75 talmidim participated. The volume of cheering from the talmidim’s peers served as judgment in the contest so, as one would imagine, it got pretty loud!

Following the costume contest, the annual talent competition ensued. From renditions of some classics to original musical compositions, amazing juggling and incredible dancing, talmidim had a blast cheering on their peers and participating and singing along with their friends. Concluding the talent competition, Assistant Menahel, Rabbi Yossi Bennett, together with a number of the rebbeim, performed the 4th edition of their original satirical composition, “Don’t Call It South Shore” which is always a crowd-pleaser.

The Mesiba closed with the annual Purim Shpiel provided by the senior class and some surprise faculty members contributed shpiels of their own.
