After a booming year of learning, boys packed the hall at Lubavitcher Yeshiva to celebrate the Grand Finale and reward ceremony for Yeshivas Erev Yehudah Kalman of Crown Heights.

The Lubavitcher Yeshiva Simcha Hall on Crown and Albany in Crown Heights was swarming with hundreds of boys this past Wednesday evening, 28th of Iyar, ready to receive their long-awaited “sefarim 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 who 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 Yosef Simpson the מנהל of ULY Crown 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 Shabbos K’halacha project of 5784 where the boys reviewed all of the Lamed Tes Melachos and Halachos in Y . E Shabbos Guide. This beautiful project was sponsored by Yossi Frimerman לעילוי נשמת his parents.

The following boys were the top winners of the Shabbos K’Halacha Competition:

Mordechai Adelist, Moshe Braun, Mendel Ciment, Yitzchak Engel, Aryeh Leib Engel, Mendel Friedman, Shlomo Gold, Levi Okunov, Yossi Osdoba, Shmuel Shurpin, Aryeh Steinmetz, Shmuli Stolik, Avraham Tenenbaum, Sholom Ber Weisfish,  Zalmy Yarmush, Tzadok Meir They were each rewarded with a certificate and a beautiful set of seforim.

Finally, the evening was concluded with presenting each of the boys who attended the Yeshivas Erev with a “sefarim 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 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 Tues. כ”ו סיון.
