On Sunday, June 28, 2009, the MMY Alumnae Association sponsored our fourth Yom Iyun in Bergenfield, NJ. Dozens of people of all ages attended this program that has become a tradition, allowing members of the MMY family and the general community to come together for a few hours to learn Torah from MMY teachers and taldmidot.
Highlights of the program included opening words from Mrs. Sara (Purow) Munk (MMY 5761 & 5763) and a shiur by Mrs. Lynn (Weiss) Kraft (MMY 5762 and faculty 5767-5768).
Below is the morning's schedule (click the highlighted links to listen to those shiurim).
