Over 220 Bochurim who have excelled in the Halikut study program, have been invited to attend Vaad Hatmimim’s second annual Halikut Siyum which will take place next week in New York.
The bochurim will first take a written test on all of the sichos, followed by a chidon with the top few finalists competing for the grand prize of all the Rebbe’s seforim.
This year Reb Yoel Kahn chief choizer of the Rebbe, will be joining the team of judges, along with Rabbi Leibel Shapiro and Rabbi Nachman Schapiro.
In between the test and the chidon, and as the tests are being graded, a special presentations will be shown by Rabbi Chaim Shaul Brook of Lahak, and Rabbi Elkana Shmotkin of JEM.
The event will conclude with a festive siyum, where the bochurim will hear from Reb Yoel Kahn and Rabbi Eli Nosson Silverberg of Mesivta Chicago. A new video presentation will be shown as well, generously dedicated by Rabbi Moshe Klein of Hasofer.
