On 8 November 2006, Rabbi Shlomo Riskin came and spoke to YCT. (I should be able to put up online his speech, though I just have to find it....)

Rabbi Yonah Reiss speaks at YCT

On 1 November 2006, Rabbi Yonah Reiss of the Beth Din of America came to speak to YCT on the topic of agunot. It was a very informative talk, though - although he didn't release any names of anybody - owing to how informative the cases were, he asked that the lecture not be placed on the Internet.

YCT Goes on Its Third Annual Bear Mountain Hike

On 26 October 2006, the students and faculty of YCT went on their third annual hike to Bear Mountain park (see here for last year's hike). Just as with last year's hike, there was a hike up the mountain, another one back down, a BBQ cookout at the end, and מנחה (afternoon prayer service). In addition to these activities, there were also some games played. Again, another good outing , especially in terms of bonding, and getting to relate to one's fellow students.
For pictures, there are mine, there are an excellent set that Akiva has uploaded, as well as Benji's photos.
