Chabura Spotlight: Daniel Cywiak

NCSY Kollel August 12, 2022

Daniel Cywiak is back for his third summer on NCSY Kollel. After two summers as an NCSYer, he is now serving as a Madrich. Daniel grew up in Woodmere, NY, and attended DRS for High School. He just finished his second year in Yeshivat Sha’alvim, and he is starting his first semester at Yeshiva University this coming fall.

The guys that are in his Chaburah are Donny Langsam (Woodmere, DRS), Rafuel Mayerson (Brooklyn, MAY), Dovid Bennun (Cedarhurst, DRS), Binyamin Ritholtz (Woodmere, MAY), and Shlomo Alter (North Woodmere, DRS).

What’s unique about Daniel’s Chaburah is that although the entire chaburah is comprised of New Yorkers, each guy has their own special contribution. Whether it’s Binyamin’s humor, Dovid and Donny’s sharp questions on the Gemara, Shlomo’s quick-witted questions about Machshava, or Rafuel’s discussion-inducing shaylos, it’s everyone working together that makes this Chaburah something special. The Chaburah has learned inspiring Sugyahs about the importance of Talmud Torah and Tefillah, but also some interesting discussion-based topics like the lomdus of Shomea K’oneh.
The guys have already grown so much together, and they’re looking to finish off the summer strong!!!
