Today was a day of friendly conflict and competition from start to finish. Immediately following Shachris, all off NCSY Kollel grouped into chaburas and headed to the center of Yerushalayim. Each chabura was dressed is a specific costume or matching theme.
Once in Yerushalayim, the Chabura Wars Scavenger Hunt began. Centered around Ben Yehuda and the Shuk, the competition saw the NCSYers completeing tasks, such as getting hired in local stores, performing acts of chesed, finding obscure products, and getting random strangers to dance. After a long morning of fun and excitement the chaburas of Matthew Wexler, Eli Goldberg, Jon Hurwitz, Zev Markowitz, Zev Jaroshow, and Avrumi Schoenbron emerged victorious.
Upon returning to Bet Meir, the playoffs resumed the next round which reduced each tournament from 16 teams to 8 as the season winds down.
After Night Seder, there were 6 independent shiur options for those who wanted to stay late to learn. The Beis was rocking late into the night once again as the day came to a close.
