A Kinus Torah was held Tuesday evening to mark the first yahrtzeit of Reb Yoel Kahn a”h, the chief chozer of the Rebbe’s Torah.

A long lineup of rabbonim and mashpi’im, who are all talmidim and mushpa’im of Reb Yoel, gathered to commemorate his first yahrtzeit. Reb Yoel merited to disseminate the Rebbe’s teachings to this entire generation and educated many generations of students throughout his over six decades of shiurim and farbrengens that literally shaped the face of dor hashvi’i.

The gathering began with a Kinus Torah on the topics of the Beis Hamikdash, organized by the Central Youth Organization in conjunction with their many projects in this area.

This annual Kinus was very dear to Reb Yoel. He would participate in it regularly and give over teachings of the Rebbe about the Beis Hamikdash. This year as well, a video will be shown of the sicha he discussed at the Kinus of 5773.

Yibadel l’chayim tovim, Rabbi Avrohom Hertzmaggid shiur in Oholei Torah and shliach in Bensonhurst expounded on the prohibition of destroying parts of the Beis Hamikdash.

In fulfillment of the Rebbe’s horaah to hold Siyumim during the Nine Days, the mashpia and mechanech Rabbi Nachman Yosef Twersky delivered a Siyum on Maseches Yevamos. Rabbi Dovid Feldman made Siyum on Shisha Sidrei Mishnah, which were studied throughout this year l’ilui nishmas the chozer.

A unique video presentation showcasing special moments from Reb Yoel, was screened at the event.
