What can happen when a self motivated group of bochurim get together and decide to make an impact for good?
At Yeshiva Tiferes Bachurim, Moshe Bitton, Simcha Finklestein, Alex Gimple, Jay Gutovich, and Elchanan Solomon got together and decided that with a little effort they could enhance all aspects of Yeshiva life. After all, a Yeshiva is all about the bochrim, and when the bochurim take it upon themselves to be actively involved something amazing happens! After brainstorming and collaborating, their ideas brought forth a renaissance of interest with the emergence of the "Rabbinical College of America Student Organization". Their first initiative was intended to bring a resurgence to their state-wide Torah Awareness Campaign to "really get Mivtzoyim going strong". And that is exactly what it did!
This first project of the all new Rabbinical College of America Student Organization was launched with a special Farbrangen featuring Rabbi Boruch Hecht, Director of Admissions at Yeshiva Tiferes Bachurim. There, the students shared a tally of their joint successes thus far on Mivtzoyim, which has reached a substantially significant 1,341 Mitzvas! And that's just since Elul! The student coordinators are certain that the impact upon Morris county and New Jersey as a whole will be mutually appreciated by all parties involved, and will be a model to many to follow. This was the first milestone of many future events, G-d Willing, which mark the achievements of the Yeshiva's Mivtzoyim and other undertakings which are to follow.
"It is our belief that all students truly want to be involved, some just don't know how to take those first few steps. The key factor is only a matter of motivation, which can be generated by proper presentation!" says student Executive Director Jay Gutovich. To this end no efforts have been spared in preparing educational packages which were presented to each student. The Student Organization has produced 'Limited Edition Rabbinical College of America Mivtzoyim cases' (complete with pushkas and guides, candles and cards)! Carrying these bags boldly stamped with the official R.C.A. Mivtzoyim logo (designed by student Baruch Leeds), a student's latent strength is revealed. By uniting under a single banner, students now find themselves marching enthusiastically as official representatives of Chabad-Lubavitch.
