Hadar Hatorah Students Launch Weekly Newsletter

While under lockdown at his home in Vermont last spring, Hadar Hatorah student Velvel Fishman started a mivtzoim route and began including a Dvar Torah, which soon grew to a full-fledged publication, now distributed by Hadar Hatorah students every week.

While at home in Vermont last spring, locked down and with nowhere to go, Hadar Hatorah student Velvel Fishman started a mivtzoim route in his rural town, delivering challahs and candles to local Jewish families before Shabbos.

One week, he included a Dvar Torah printout in his weekly distribution.
Slowly he began putting together more weekly Divrei Torah, drawing from Chabad.org. and other sources.

In the summer, Velvel attended Hadar Hatorah’s program in the Catskills. He continued putting together more weekly Divrei Torah. When the yeshiva returned to Crown Heights after the summer, the newsletter was expanded and began printing in color.

The editorial staff now actively included other bochurim, including Jonathan Stebbins and yeshiva shaliach Mendel Rosenbluh. Other bochrim in the yeshiva have become regular contributors.

In their spare time, Hadar Hatorah students prepare for Friday’s outreach activities. Part of those preparations is writing and editing the weekly newsletter.

The rest is history…
