Electricity Shutdown Couldn’t Stop Torah Study

A sudden electricity shutdown caused the power to go out at Yagdil Torah’s Heichal Halimmud but in almost no time, community members erected a lighting structure to enable learning to continue.

If the lights go out, you can’t learn, right?


At Yagdil Torah, limmud Torah is the number one priority, and nothing will get in the way. The Beis Medrash on Empire Boulevard suddenly lost electricity on Monday, due a Con Edison shutdown.

With the help of several caring friends of Yagdil Torah, the dedicated organization erected a lighting structure to bring the light back to this special place of limmud Torah.

Almost no time was lost before people were able to once again seek shelter in this haven of learning that is always there for them. The physical light brought into Yagdil Torah’s building thus enabled spiritual light to radiate once more.

Yagdil Torah Heichal Halimmud, located at 574 Empire Boulevard, is open 20 hours a day, seven days a week.
