Rabbi Shai Scherer directed a brachos bee program for Yeshivas Toras Simcha students. Students were given packets with which listed various foods and their corresponding brachos.  The difficulty of the brachos increased the older the grade.  Over the last two weeks the students studies these packets. Two students were chosen to represent each class for the final bechina.

Rabbi Dovid Heber, Rav of congregation KAYTT and Star-K administrator treated the students with a story about his visit to the Kellogg’s and Kemach factories. Rabbi Heber explained why the bracha on cornflakes depends on which factory it was made in and based on a psak from Rav Moshe Feinstein, z”l.

Rabbi Heber then quizzed the class representatives and prizes were given to the students who scored highest.
