The Lubavitcher Yeshiva Simcha Hall on Crown and Albany in Crown Heights was swarming with hundreds of boys this past Thursday evening, 19 Sivan, ready to receive their long-awaited seforim vouchers that they earned this year by attending Yeshivas Erev.
Rabbi Z. Sorkin, the dynamic coordinator of Yeshivas Erev, opened up the grand finale with words of praise for all of the boys that devoted every evening of the week to further themselves in Limud Hatorah – some reviewing their Gemara, others joining the Mishnayos Gavriel Project, still others doing their homework and some learning Mishnayos and Tanya Bal Peh.
When Rabbi Oster, a veteran maggid shiur in Oholei Menachem, addressed the boys they were mesmerized by his description of how valuable their Torah learning really is.
Rabbi Sorkin then thanked all of the Mashgichim and older Bochurim for their great devotion to the boys that made this year such an outstanding one. He presented each of them with a beautiful gift as a token of appreciation. The evening was also the climax of the Brochos Project sponsored by Yossi Frimerman l’ilui nishmas his parents.
The following boys were the top winners of the Birchas Hanehenin competition:
Mendel Rendler, Gabi Baumgarten, Elchonon Broh, Shmuel Dovid Marozov, Shmuel Shurpin, Menachem Mendel Ciment, Mendy Osdoba, Yosef Peretz Zaetz, Sholom Leib Wircberg, Moshe Braun, Meir Cohen, Levi Schapiro, Yakov Marozov, Sholom Ber Speilman and Nochum Simpson. They were each rewarded with a beautiful set of Seforim
Finally, the evening was concluded with presenting each of the boys that attended the Yeshivas Erev with a seforim voucher to be cashed in at Kehot. The amount each boy received was based on his attendance and accomplishments during the past year.
Yeshivas Erev Yehudah Kalman is a project of Igud Menahalie Yeshivos headed by Rabbi L. Newman, Rabbi H. Lustig and Rabbi Y. Simpson.
Yeshivas Erev will continue iy”H this summer in the Agudah Shul on Crown Street in the evening from 7:00 to 8:00 P M. beginning on Tue. 8 Tammuz.
