Rabbi Kessel's Shiur Visits the Zoo

by Shimmy Mandelbaum ('16)

This past Wednesday, Rabbi Kessel's tenth grade shiurtook a trip to the Bronx Zoo. The shiur boarded the buses after breakfast for what would be a great bonding experience for the class.The boys had many opportunities to witness the incredible creatures at the zoo, ranging from sea creatures to reptiles to land mammals to those that can fly, and to admire the amazing beauty, wisdom, and complexity of Hashem's world.

 However, the students did have to end the fun at some point and return back to school for their afternoon classes.Walking through the zoo together had a truly positive impact on the class, and the boys hope to participate in many more shiur trips throughout the year.
