Going to the Championship -- Again!!!!!!

After winning the AFI Championships in 5769, this mighty "football" school of 35 students are back in the big game. Amazingly, this is a completely new team. Only one student who played in the 5769 Championship is back in 5771 (Pinchas Schwartzbaum) and there is no player on the team who is not a DEC student.

Yes, that is R' Sheftel in the picture. You know its a big game when R' Sheftel is in attendance. For more details check out the DEC Facebook page and the DEC Football Blog

And we didn't just beat top rated Lobos in the Semi-Finals - we whalloped them 101-6. Well we would have won 101-6 if we hadn't run out of time. Just take a look for yourself!!

Sadoff, we might have to make a"Championship Sweatshirt"

Yeah this 5771 team is awesome, but now is when all of the "what ifs" start to emerge.
Could this 5771 team beat the 5769 Championship team?
And let's not forget about the DEC team from 5766?

DEC and Yad Eliezer

Once in a while the students at Derech Etz Chaim need an opportunity to express their chessed outside of the yeshiva walls. Yad Eliezer, one of the most integral charitable organizations in Israel, relies almost completely on volunteers to help make their programs successful, enabling more than 95% of their contributions to go towards helping people.

DEC has been a proud partner of Yad Eliezer for the past few years. The students especially love visiting the warehouse to pack food boxes for needy families.

Every month, Yad Eliezer delivers food boxes to over 6,000 families, assisting 50,000 people. Each box contains the essentials for a hungry family: rice, beans, pasta, sugar, flour, oil, laundry detergent and more.

By supplying food to the home, rather than feeding people in soup kitchens, Yad Eliezer eases the plight of the needy, while maintaining family stability and dignity.
