Hausdorff Tournament

On December 1st-4th, the 16th annual Thomas Hausdorff Memorial Basketball Tournament and Shabbaton honoring our late principal was held in our school. Players from three yeshivah high schools joined our Junior Varsity for the tournament: Akiva from Detroit, Cooper from Memphis, and Kushner from New Jersey. The tournament began Thursday with a wonderful Yachad program and continued throughout the weekend with exciting basketball games, a meaningful Shabbaton and an inspiring closing ceremony. We want to thank all the families who opened their homes to our guests, especially Steve & Michelle Sasson, who organized a beautiful Oneg Shabbat Friday night program with divrei Torah and zemirot; Eric & Suzanne Sasson, who enhanced our Shabbat afternoon with good company and sweet delights; and Steven & Amy Sasson, whose special touch at Seudah Shlisheet made everyone feel like family. Mr. Mike Gelber, Ms. Rebecca Silberman and Rabbi Naftali Besser coordinated the event. Special congratulations go to our great junior varsity team for bringing home the championship trophy.
