Vaad Hatmimim teamed up with members of hanhala in Chabad yeshivos to launch a Mivtza Torah initiative for bochurim learning in 770, encouraging them to learn Gemorah by heart.
Each year hundreds of Israeli Bochurim make their way to the Central Chabad Yeshivah of 770 to spend a year learning in the Rebbe’s presence. The learning in 770 is always strong and diligent, but many Bochurim find it difficult to focus in the new learning setting, very different from what they are used to.
To tackle this long-standing issue, the Vaad Hatmimim teamed up with members of Hanholla in the Israeli Yeshivas, with the encouragement of the Hanholla of 770, to launch a Mivtza Torah initiative, encouraging the bochurim to learn Gemorah by heart. The learning and atmosphere in 770 was immediately elevated to new heights and the Mivtza has seen tremendous results in the mere three weeks since its launch.
“It is no doubt that the ‘Kol Torah’ emanating from 770 in the past few weeks has grown stronger,” said one of the organizers. “A real change can be felt in the air of 770, so many Bochurim have devoted a lot of their time to memorizing the words of Meseches Gittin, the Mesechta that the Yeshiva is learning this year,” commented another.
Aside from the obvious spiritual gain from joining the Mivtza, the bochurim who successfully pass the tests will be awarded a cash prize of up to $180.
Many Bochurim passed the first test with flying colors, proving that their hard work has paid off. With the second test right around the corner, the organizers are certain that the Mivtza will continue to grow with more excitement and participants and that this will cause much Nachas to the Rebbe.
