This past Sunday, 120 bochurim of Section C in Camp Gan Yisroel Montreal took an optional “Final” on all that they learned over the course of the first month.
This past Sunday 120 bochurim of Section C (7th grade CGI Montreal) took an optional “Final” on all that they learned over the course of the first month.
The quota, which was a lot larger than in the past, covered 4 Daf Gemara, a Ma’amar Chassidus from the Friediker Rebbe, many Halachos in Shulchan Aruch, stories in Ein Yaakov, and Perek 11 of Hilchos Melech Hamoshiach in the Rambam, all of which was on the test.
The final, consisting of 50 multiple choice questions, was written by the learning teachers and required a very thorough knowledge and understanding of all that was learned in order to get a passing mark.
Being that the test was completely optional, most of the Chazarah was done out of class. Optional Chazzarah Sedurim took place for a few days during the regular time for swimming (as this was during the nine days) with teachers being present to answer questions and to give general summaries.
Over 85 bochurim passed the test and received a prize as well as a special late-night with the learning directors Leibel Simpson and Mendel Lerner.
“It’s truly a big accomplishment”, said the learning directors. “We learned over the course of one month, what is normally covered in “Section C” over a full summer. To have such a success in the test with such a large amount of material is very special.”
The learning directors also wanted to thank all of the learning teachers:
Tzviki Zweibel, Moshe Hildishaim, Menachem Jelen, Mendy Grunwald, Mendel Jacobson, Mendel Gootblat, Mendel Benjaminson, Yisrolik Wagner, Dovid Barash, Avremel Labkowski, Zalman Cunin and Mendel Zavdi.
For all their hard work throughout the month and for all the additional hours put into writing the test and ensuring its success.
