YU students enliven holiday celebrations

During Simchat Torah, more than 250 Yeshiva University undergraduates traveled to synagogues across the United States and Canada to enrich holiday celebrations by sharing divrei Torah, youth programming, and their passion for Judaism as part of the annual Aaron and Blanche Shreiber Torah Tours program. Congregation Ahavat Achim in Fair Lawn was among the host synagogues.

Now in its fourth decade, Torah Tours sends small teams of young men and women to communities for Simchat Torah and Shavuot, where they teach classes, lead singing and dancing, meet with synagogue youth, and create a fun and spirited Yom Tov experience.

“The people of Ahavat Achim were amazing, very friendly and open to visitors,” said Amitai Rosen, a student who went to Fair Lawn with Torah Tours this year.
