After a weeks-long mivtza hachana for Yud Shevat, the bochurim of Morristown Yeshiva gathered for an event marking its successful conclusion.
The mivtza included the study of inyonei geulah u’moshiach, watching a video of the Rebbe twice a week, attending Seder Sichos, writing summaries of ma’amarim, and other learning goals. Many bochurim in the yeshiva took part in the mivtza, and its effect was clearly felt in the Yeshiva over the weeks before Yud Shevat.
On Thursday, an event in the Tomchei Tmimim Zal marked the conclusion of the mivtza. Raffles for prizes for the mivtza were also held, in recognition of the bochurim’s hard work during the weeks of the mivtza.
Bochur Gilad Gershman won the grand prize of a dollar from the Rebbe, and bochur Yankel Eidelman won a set of the Frierdiker Rebbe’s Torah. Other prizes of seforim were also raffled off. One of the seforim raffled off was the newly published ‘The Basics of Chassidus,’ which had been co-authored by Morristown mashpia Rabbi Naftoli Hertz Pewzner. Rabbi Pewzner personally inscribed each book to its winner, wishing them success in their studies.
