On Erev Shabbos, May 11, Parshas Behar-Bechukosai, Rabbi Bentzion Twersky, the Rav of Congregation Beth Jehuda of Milwaukee, visited Yeshiva. Rather than speaking to the Talmidim in the traditional shiur format, and our Talmidim were privileged to hear Divrei Chizuk from Rabbi Twersky as he sat with them during breakfast, discussing issues pertinent to our times. He quoted the well-known Gemara in Kiddushin which states that Torah serves as an antidote to the yetzer hara and elaborated upon its powerful effect. We would like to extend a very special thank you to Rabbi Arnstein, rabbi Kreisman and south Bend Hebrew Day School for bringing in Rabbi Twersky and allowing us to share in this wonderful weekend of of Chizuk.
On June 10, 2018, כז׳ סיון תשע״ח, the Talmidim of Yeshiva Gedolah of South Bend will בעז״ה be making a Siyum on Maseches Sukkah. In conjunction with this accomplishment, friends of Yeshiva will have the opportunity to actively participate in the siyum.
Here is how it will work:
- 55 chavrusa pairs will sign up, each one committing to bli neder complete one of the 55 Blatt of Maseches Sukkah.
- These Lomdim will come to the Yeshiva Bais Midrash on June 10th to learn their blatt from 5:15 – 6:15 PM. This learning will be followed by a siyum and seudas mitzvah.
