(Courtesy of Anshe Chesed) Over Shabbat Parshat Yitro, Anshe Chesed of Linden was honored to host three students in Yeshiva University’s Graduate Program in Advanced Talmudic/ Tanach Studies (GPATS). Friday evening, Anshe Chesed’s women made their way to an oneg featuring a shiur by Shoshana Rockoff, who spoke about sibling rivalry, contrasting the relationship between Moshe and Ahron to the relationship between Kayin and Hevel. The next morning, Tzophia Stephansky gave the drasha about the Aseret Hadibrot, and all of the members enjoyed meeting the GPATS students during kiddush. During seudat shelishit, Neti Linzer gave a shiur, while the other GPATS students ran a program for the children.

Although this was Anshe Chesed’s first GPATS shabbaton, members of Anshe Chesed previously had a chaburah with Stephansky. Chavi Penzias, a member of that chaburah, said that the whole Shabbat was very inspiring. “The delivery of all the speakers was on point. I felt like I was back in seminary for a Shabbat.”
