The Rabbi Pesach Raymon Yeshiva in Edison sponsored its Second Annual Community Wide Simchat Beit HaShoeva on Monday, October 2. Hundreds of RPRY grandparents, parents, alumni and students and many other community members came out to enjoy the gathering on the RPRY campus.
The event included pizza in the sukkah, an ice cream truck, a photo booth, and singing and dancing led by prominent Jewish singer Dovid Pearlman and keyboard sensation (and RPRY alumnus) Seth Maza, courtesy of the Avi Maza Orchestra. The program culminated in a beautiful kumzitz around a firepit led by RPRY Head of School Rabbi Michael Ribalt; RPRY’s new Middle School Assistant Principal Rabbi Yaacov Feit; Board President Jordan Kaplan; Middle School Rebbe, Rabbi Moshe Chait; and other RPRY faculty members.
Co-Chairs Tova Halpern and Laura Weiss put together a multifaceted event that was a big hit with the entire community. Noteworthy visitors to the event included East Brunswick Mayor Brad Cohen, Edison Mayor Sam Joshi and Highland Park Mayor Elsie Foster.
