A new learning center for the L’maan Yilmedu program was dedicated in Crown Heights on Tuesday in memory of Rabbi Zushe Wilhelm, who served as the head of the program.

The center, on Empire Blvd between Kingston and Brooklyn, hosted many of the program’s shiurim and tests while it served as the home of Nosson’s Shul. After the shul moved to a new location in South Crown Heights, and following the tragic passing of Rabbi Wilhelm, the shul was renovated and designated to serve as a beis medrash and center for the blossoming L’maan Yilmedu program.

Attending the chanukas habayis on Tuesday were family members, local and guest rabbonim, students and alumni of the program.

The mezuza was affixed by R’ Monya Wolvovsky, a brother in law of Rabbi Zushe Wilhelm, with Rabbi Wilhelm’s brothers on hand as well. Addresses were delivered by Harav Yosef Braun of the Crown Heights Beis Din, Rabbi Berel Shur, son-in-law of Rabbi Wilhelm, and others, and a grandson of Rabbi Wilhelm made a siyum. Family members then unveiled a beautiful sign dedicating the new center as ‘Heichal Ziv’ in memory of Rabbi Wilhelm.
