Attending the event were seventy-five former students, with alumni ranging from 2005 through to 2021 looking to reminisce and strengthen friendships. It was a genuine pleasure to see a third of the young men now happily married with children, passing on the values and lessons JETS instilled in the next generation.
For a young man, knowing he has the ability to support his family can alleviate stress and lift the burden from his shoulders. He has the freedom to pursue a career that is meaningful and lucrative. He can give back to the community and live a life of dignity and purpose.
We are happy to announce that Rabbi Shmuel Schneerson, co-director of the hugely successful summer program Yeshivas Kayitz Yerushalayim, will be joining JETS staff as a full-time teacher and mashpia. Rabbi Schneerson, who holds an M.A. in Psychology and Marriage and Family Therapy and a certificate from the Victor Frankel Institute of Logotherapy, is uniquely positioned to further JETS’ mission of combining Torah learning with real-world application.
We are excited to share that JETS alumnus Sam Liberow was recently featured in the Jewish Journal, one of the largest Jewish news outlets in the United States.
