Both faculty and students from all divisions of the Academy were well represented at Sunday's ASBEE Kosher BBQ Contest. From the courts of the 3 on 3 tournaments to the booths and the judges, it was hard not to notice the presence of the Academy at this annual regional event.

A special thanks goes to Mrs. Guyla Wanderman who lead the way in creating our booth and to Mrs. Gersten who conceived of the idea and organized its implementation. We are grateful as well to Elie and Rafie Freiden who did the cooking for us. It was much appreciated.

Besides our own school booth, our Torah Mitzion Kollel was present with their Kooky booth and musical cast of Rabbi and Mrs. Goldberg, Rabbi and Mrs. Kolton, the Kollel guys, and our Bat Ami girls. For information on upcoming Torah Mitzion Programs, email Rabbi Goldberg at .

We also took great pride in (and great brisket from) the first time presence of an NCSY booth manned by our own Rabbi Marc and Mrs. Emily Lennon. In addition to teaching in the middle and high schools, Rabbi Lennon is the new Memphis Director of NCSY. Under his leadership Memphis NCSY has now joined the Midwest Region and is gearing up for a fun-filled and exciting year. To find out more email them at .

Yasher Kochachem to all!
