Steak Dinner

...A wonderful, feel good evening for our school... Our boys and our school shined... I cannot remember The Yeshiva shining as brightly as it did last night... It really was remarkable to see the wholesomeness, camaraderie and drive that is instilled within them... It just gets better every year... What a special evening! A beautiful concept, executed beautifully... All the other schools I have ever been in have something to learn from what happened here tonight... To say that tonight was so beautiful and so nice, is a terrible understatement... I have lived in several different communities and I have never, ever seen something so moving... All the other schools I have ever been in have something to learn from what happened here tonight...



These were but a few of the comments I received in response to Sunday night's 16th annual Cooper Yeshiva High School for Boys Steak Dinner.  Moving as they may be, no words can quite describe an evening for which 40 boys, led by their mentor, teacher, and friend, Rabbi Gersten, spent weeks cooking, cleaning, practicing, filming, editing, marketing, and fundraising; an evening in which over 300 community members came out for food that was truly delicious, service that was truly unparalleled, and entertainment that was both wholesome and thoroughly enjoyable; an evening in which high school students, of their own accord, publicly payed tribute to a teacher who has made a difference in their lives.


Hopefully, this video will give you some sense of how magical the evening was.  The only way to truly appreciate it, though, is to join our boys as they do it again next year...
