Our next great series; Light Revealed! which focuses on revealing the light of passion that young people have to share. The first 6 episodes in the series will correlate to the time of Sfiras HaOmer. Each week we will explore the kabbalistic theme of that week of sfirah (see the first of the series here for further background into the sfirah of each week) and then we will pair that theme with an interview of a remarkable young person which truly captures the essence of that weeks theme.In this sixth episode Menachem introduces the Sfriah of Yesod and we are joined by Chaim Ghoori. Chaim describes himself as just a dude looking to reveal another aspect of his soul one day at a time. Chaim recently married Sara Beinenstock, now Ghoori, who is a teacher in SKA in charge of Chessed, in the Beit medrash program and teaches algebra as well. If you ask Chaim he would say she's amazing and smart but also just super cool! Chaim was a dorm counselor in Waterbury and is currently studying in the mornings and teaching at yeshiva nishmas Hatorah in the afternoons. Yet he feels that wherever he goes in life he will always be a Waterbury dorm counselor :) For more information on Sfiras Ha'Omer and the themes of each day and week you can also check out our Sfiras HaOmer companion, here sites.google.com/tlrfamily.org/receiving-light/sefira-companionFor more information on our future plans @The Light Revealed please join this whatsapp group (admin post only) Light Revealed Updates(https://chat.whatsapp.com/Khox4pFJEstAgFMYqJwQJc)Consciously The Podcast is a project of The Light Revealed.

The opioid epidemic that has been devastating many communities in Connecticut for the last several years was only exacerbated by the stress and isolation of the pandemic. And that's on top of the influx of fentanyl that has truly led to an epidemic of overdose deaths. But the pandemic has also shown us all the importance of prioritizing recovery and mental health. Are we turning the corner on the stigma of drug use? This episode we go inside the district court in Torrington to learn how people are being given access to treatment rather than jail. And Harriet Jones will take us to New London to find out how churches there are helping in the effort to keep drug users safe. Mercy and John speak with Rushnee Vereen about her work as an overdose response technician for the City of Waterbury.

When a 31-year-old man who had just broken up with his girlfriend asked a neighbor to watch his dog for a few days, no one immediately worried. But Billy Smolinski never gave his neighbor the keys to his home so he could check on his beloved dog, Harley. Billy's family immediately knew that all of this behavior was out of character for the quiet homebody.When they turned to the police for help, they were told the same thing that so many families of missing adults are told: "Just wait; he'll be back." But Billy Smolinski didn't come back. August 24, 2022 will mark 18 years since the Waterbury, Connecticut resident was last seen, and despite someone going to prison on a charge related to his disappearance, the Smolinski family is still fighting for answers and justice for Billy.If you have any information regarding the disappearance of William “Billy” Smolinski please contact the Waterbury Police Department at 203-574-6941 or the New Haven FBI Office at 203-777-6311.

Thanks Nachum! This Tuesday Morning JM in the AM Sports Update is dedicated to the memory of my father Marty, Avraham Menashe Ben Dov Be'er HaLevi on his 16th Yahrtzeit. The playoffs have arrived and boy have they produced fireworks. We'll take you through all of the week's postseason action straight ahead on this Tuesday Morning JM in the AM Sports Update, I'm Elliot Weiselberg Varsity Hockey starts us off with two major upsets. Last night saw West #4 SAR upend East #1 DRS on the road 4-2. Junior Gabriel Hornblass paced the Sting with 2 goals in the victory. The win for the Sting avenges a regular season embarrassment at home and will mark the third time in the last 4 varsity hockey playoffs that one of the #1 seeds did not reach the varsity semifinals and the first time that a #4 seed has defeated a #1 seed since the 2017-2018 season, when West #4 Frisch defeated East #1 DRS. Speaking of which, the Sting will now advance to play Frisch in Frisch following the Cougars decimation of Magen David. Frisch and SAR each split the season series with home victories. As we speak about that 2017-2018 postseason, this will be the first time that the two have faced in the post-season since the championship game of that playoff season. On the other side of the bracket, though not a seeding upset, a ranking upset nonetheless. East #2 HANC behind the stellar play of Junior goalie Joey Diamond defeated West #3 MTA 2-1. The Hurricanes will travel to TABC who have already had to deal with solid goaltending in their 5-0 win over East #4 Rambam that was 0-0 for the majority of the first two periods in Senior goalie Sam Korman’s final game as a Rambam Raven. Unlike Varsity, JV Hockey went a little more "by-the-numbers" as both 2 seeds defeated the 3 seeds to advance. Continuing the goalie theme, East #2 HAFTR defeated West #3 Frisch 3-0 behind a shutout from Hawk goalie freshman Max Newmark. On the other side West #2 Kushner avenged an early season loss to Rambam, knocking off the Ravens in Kushner by the score of 4-2. As a result, each will travel to the opposing division's #1 seed, for Kushner, that would be DRS and for HAFTR, that will be TABC. That game will be next Tuesday night. Varsity Basketball has ¾ of its quarterfinals set with an upset to note as well. East #5 YDE upended East #4 Waterbury in Overtime 53-50. YDE will advance to play West #1 SAR, date and time to be determined. The other two matchups saw the favorites advance as East #3 Magen David won the battle of the Magens defeating East #6 Magen Abraham by 19. The Warriors will take on West #2 Ramaz on Monday. In the West, #3 TABC defeated #6 Hillel 40-30 to advance to face East #2 Flatbush. East #1 DRS will await the winner of the remaining First round contest between West #4 Frisch and #5 MTA. JV Basketball’s post-season will get a boost tonight as Ramaz and North Shore and Flatbush and SAR will face off in the quarterfinals. SAR advanced to the Quarters after defeating JEC in the West play-in game 52-37. The only quarterfinal contest that has been played saw West #1 Frisch throttle DRS 81-52. Frisch will advance to play the winner of the only Quarterfinal contest remaining after tonight, which will see East #2 Magen David host West #3 TABC on Thursday night. As the playoffs roll on, please continue to get all the latest information from and be sure to follow Yeshiva League Pass on Instagram. And that was your Tuesday Morning JM in the AM Sports Update, I'm Elliot Weiselberg.
In this episode, Amber covers the incredible survival story of Donna Palomba. On a September night in 1993, in Waterbury, Connecticut; Donna Palomba was attacked in her home by a masked man while her husband was out of town and her 2 young children slept down the hall. Donna's story is one of courage, hope, perseverance and a fight for justice. Amber was drinking a luscious Red from Alinta Ranch Winery, from South Eastern Australia. Amber pulled her sources from:Dateline "Evil Paid A Visit," Season 30, Episode 13www.wikipedia.orgwww.newsunzip.comwww.thecinemaholic.com / "Where is Donna Palomba Now" Kriti Mehrotra / January 21, 2022www.nbcnews.com /"The Man Behind The Mask," / Sara James / April 30, 2007 You can check out Donna Palomba's non-profit organization at www.janedoenomore.orgThen Erika covers the famous story of how 3 inmates attempted and managed to escape the most secure prison in the world. Frank Morris, John Anglin and Clarence Anglin, were all serving their prison sentences on the Rock a.k.a. Alcatraz. With Morris in charge they planned their escape for months before finally executing the very well thought out plan. THe whole thing was beyond creative and its incredible how they pulled this stunt off. The even crazier thing is that once they escaped, they just vanished. Still to this day the question is did the 3 men, die in the San Francisco Bay or did they manage to just blend in to the world without being noticed and live their best lives, no one knows. So listen in while Erika goes over one of the most famous prison escapes and the men who got away with it.Erika was drinking 19 Crimes Martha's Chard - Chardonnay, its very good but a little sweet for her taste.Erika pulled her sources from:www.webmd.comwww.fbi.gov/history/famous-cases/alcatraz-escapewww.history.com / Was the Escape from Alcatraz Successful?Natasha Frost / August 31, 2018www.en.wikipedia.org
After a Hartford woman went viral for an extreme speeding ticket, Chaz and AJ asked the Tribe to call in stories about getting pulled over. The segment took a weird turn with the last call from Jennifer the Plow Girl. (0:00) Ice fishing has been a recurring topic this week, and Chaz and AJ got to speak with someone very close to it. Tim from Marine Solutions was on to talk about the recovery efforts he led, getting two vehicles out of the water after they fell through the ice driving out for a fishing tournament. (15:58) Frank Wihbey was in studio to talk about a horror movie made right in Waterbury. "The Dead Girl in Apartment 03" has a screening tomorrow night, and Frank talked all about trying to get a movie made with a budget of only $30,000. (28:34) Desmond Child is a professional songwriter, who has helped a lot of major acts write some of their biggest hits. KISS, Aerosmith, Joan Jett and Bon Jovi, just to name a FEW! Desmond admits that the "Gina" from "You Give Love a Bad Name" was a girl he was dating at the time he helped Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora write the song.

Thanks Nachum! Happy 2-22-22 everyone! As we roll out of President's Day, the Yeshiva League has wrapped up its Fall and Winter regular seasons. All hockey and basketball playoff matchups are set and we’ll take you through all of them straight ahead on the Tuesday Morning JM in the AM Sports Update. Good morning, I'm Elliot Weiselberg. Boys Varsity Basketball saw a potentially messy situation alleviated when Flatbush, Magen David and Waterbury each picked up wins, avoiding a possible 5-way tie for seeds 2-6. As a result of their victories over HANC, Heschel and Magen Abraham, respectively, the three teams finish at 9-5 with easy tiebreaks behind East #1 DRS. The Falcons will join the Wildcats with a bye while #3 Magen David will meet up with #6 Magen Abraham tomorrow night and #4 Waterbury will host #5 YDE. The winners of those contests will head West to meet up with either #1 SAR or #2 Ramaz. Meanwhile heading East will be the winner of tomorrow night’s contest featuring #3 TABC and #6 Hillel and next Thursday night’s contest between #4 Frisch and #5 MTA. The Cougars earned the right to host their first-round contest following a 54-49 win over TABC last week. In JV Basketball, Flatbush earned the East #1 seed, defeating HAFTR 45-40 and winning the tiebreak over Magen David who will slot in as the East #2 seed. Flatbush will await Thursday night’s play-in round game between SAR and JEC for the West #4 seed, while Magen David will host West #3 TABC next Thursday. The Storm were able to avoid the play-in round with wins over Frisch and Kushner on consecutive nights. The Cougars entered that matchup already having the West top seed locked up and will square off with East #4 DRS tomorrow night. The final first round matchup will feature West 2nd seed Ramaz hosting East #3 North Shore. That game will take place next Tuesday night. Moving over to hockey, where Boys varsity ended the season with some mostly expected results. TABC took 2 wins on the week to wrap up the West #1 seed and will square off with #4 Rambam on Sunday night. The winner will meet up with the winner of tomorrow night’s matchup between East #2 HANC and West #3 MTA out in Uniondale. MTA finished in the 3 seed by virtue of Frisch’s win over JEC. The win earned the West #2 spot for Frisch, who will face off with East #3 Magen David tonight, where the winner will meet up with either East #1 DRS or West #4 SAR who will meet up next Monday night. In JV Hockey, the final piece of the puzzle was determined Wednesday night as Kushner defeated MTA to clinch the West #2 seed and eliminate the Lions from playoff contention. Kushner will now host East #3 Rambam this coming Monday night with the winner to face East #1 DRS, while in the other bracket West #1 TABC will await this Saturday night’s contest between East #2 HAFTR and West #3 Frisch.

Good Morning Everyone! It's been quite a stretch since we last brought you the JM in the AM Sports Update. Almost a full winter regular season has passed by, and with the playoffs on the horizon, now is a good a time as any to bring you up to speed on where teams stand in hockey and basketball. We'll set up the last week of the regular season and look ahead to the playoffs. All that and more, straight ahead, I'm Elliot Weiselberg. Hockey's JV and Varsity East divisions have their playoffs set, while the West still has spots to be determined. In Varsity, the top 4 teams in each of the two conferences make the playoffs with the top 2 in each earning first round home games. The East will see DRS, HANC, Magen David and Rambam advance. Rambam worked their way into the postseason by overtaking Flatbush on the play of goalie Sam Korman who backstopped the Ravens to a 2-0 win over HANC and a 2-1 win over Flatbush themselves this past Sunday, knocking the Falcons from playoff position. The West is somewhat more complicated as the 4 playoff teams have been determined, but most of the order is still up in the air. SAR will be the 4 seed and will travel to DRS in a repeat of a confrontation from last week, where DRS dominated 7-3. In front of the Sting, three teams sit at 21 points. TABC will have the advantage, having two games still remaining with two non-playoff teams, Kushner and Ohr Yisroel. Any slip ups will open the door for Frisch, who will face off Motzai Shabbos with JEC. Frisch put the pressure to the Storm this past weekend following a 2-1 overtime victory over TABC in Frisch to sweep the season series. Waiting out the stretch is MTA, who have no more games left, but still have a shot at the two seed if Frisch loses their finale and TABC takes a point in either of their last 2 games. Otherwise, the Lions will travel to HANC in Round 1 In JV, the top 3 teams in each of the two conferences make the playoffs, with the division winners getting a bye. DRS and TABC have locked up the East and West, respectively. Behind DRS, HAFTR takes the 2 seed and will host the West #3 seed, while Rambam locked up the East #3 seed Monday night, avenging an early season loss to North Shore 5-1 to overtake them for the final spot. Out West, behind TABC, Kushner has locked up a playoff spot, but wont know whether it will be the West #2 or #3 seed until the Cobras face MTA tomorrow night. Currently in 2nd with 10 points, Kushner needs only one point to lock up a home playoff spot. Meanwhile, MTA will be fighting for their playoff lives. A regulation loss will deadlock them into a tie with Frisch, who will overtake them based on tiebreakers In Varsity Basketball, the top 6 teams in each of the 2 conferences advance with the top 2 teams each getting byes. The Varsity West has its 6 participants and its 2 bye teams. SAR ran away with the division, with a 13-1 record, while Ramaz earned the 2 seed following wins over Heschel, Frisch, Kushner and Ohr Yisroel to open up the month of February. TABC, sitting at 10-3 will be the 3 seed. Frisch, MTA and Hillel will be 4-6. Frisch currently sits at 8-5 with a game against TABC. Out East, DRS is tops at 12-2, but 2-6 is a mess, as Flatbush, Magen David, Waterbury and YDE currently sit at 8 wins, meanwhile Magen Abraham rounds out the final East playoff spot and can also still reach 8 wins. In JV, the top of the East is ruled by Brooklyn as Magen David currently sits at 8-2, however, Flatbush at 7-2 can cause a little chaos with a win over HAFTR tonight. Doing so would deadlock the 2 teams and force a coin flip to break the tie for the conference top seed. North Shore at 6-3 could still make waves at the top of the division, but already knows that it will be in the playoffs, while DRS and HAFTR squared off last night in their battle for the final East berth. Out West, Frisch, Ramaz and SAR have clinched berths, TABC can do the same with a win tonight versus Frisch or tomorrow against Kushner, and JEC has the edge over Kushner for the final spot in the West.

Composed by Meir Levine, Waterbury Yeshiva Fitting the right words into a song can be a difficult feat, especially when you have powerful words like Gam Ki Eilech. But Meir Levine of Waterbury wrote a song at a time of fear that shines a light on how Hakadosh Baruch Hu is with us even in the darkest times. The depth of this song actually comes from its simplicity. Take this song with you and listen to it in good times and dark ones. Lchaim. Lyrics: גם כי אלך בגיא צלמות, לא אירא רע כי אתה עמדי, שבטך ומשענתך המה ינחמני. Translation: Though I walk in the valley overshadowed by death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me. Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
