The Lubavitcher Yeshiva Simcha Hall on Crown and Albany in Crown Heights was swarming with hundreds of boys this past Thursday evening, 3 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 Mishnas Gavriel Project, still others doing their homework and some learning Mishnayos and Tanya Bal Peh.
An amazing “kitzur” project was launched in the Yeshivas Erev in memory of Rabbi Y. K. Marlow.
Every evening after completing their homework the boys learned 10 simanim in “kitzur” that are not covered in their regular school curriculum. After completing each siman they would answer questions and be tested.
All boys receiving 100% received a cash award of $25; those receiving 80% or above were given $18.
The following boys were the top winners of the “Kitzur Project”:
Chaim Uziel Amzalak, Shmuel Belinitzki, Yisreal Eliav, Moishie Freeman, Nosson Gurary, Schneur Zalman Gurkow, Tzvi Hirsh Levilev, Shmuel Nelken, Yisroel Meir Paris, Menachem Mendel Popper, Meir Rapoport, Yossi Telsner, Zev Wallach, Avraham Weingarten, Sholom Dovber Weingarten.
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 Shabbos K’halacha project where the boys reviewed all the Lamed Tes Melachos and Halachos.
The following boys were the top winners of the Shabbos K’halacha Competition:
Nochum Yosef Altein, Chaim Uziel Amzalak, Betzalel Andrusier, Menachem Mendel Barber, Yossi Bell, Dovid Tzemach Moshe Engel, Schneur Zalman Aharon Felberman, Aryeh Leib Freeman, Menachem Mendel Goldberg, Meir Menachem Kozlovsky, Yitzchok Labkowski, Mendel Lewis, Menachem Mendel Mizrachi, Mendel Okunov, Menachem Mendel Popper, Shmuel Rabinowitz, Benyamin Rosenbluh, Menachem Mendel Stolik, Zev Wallach, Avraham Weingarten, Avraham Weingarten & Sholom Dovber Weingarten.
They were each rewarded with a set of Seforim.
At the conclusion of the evening, each of the boys who attended the Yeshivas Erev was presented with a “seforim voucher” to be cashed in at Kehos. The amount each boy received was based on his attendance and accomplishments during the past year.
Yeshivas Erev will continue this summer in the Agudah Shul on Crown Street, every evening from 7:00 to 8:00 pm beginning on Tuesday, 29 Sivan.
