This coming טו׳ בשבט (Sunday night January 20 through January 21), our talmidim plan to participate in a special טו בשבט program which will אי״ה take place in Chicago. In a 24-hour period, the entire ש״ס will be jointly learned by close to 500 participants at the Veitzener Cheder, followed by a seudas siyum in honor of the momentous occasion. The Yeshiva undertook to complete the first perek of Maseches Kiddushin (40 blatt), to be completed throughout the day. At last year’s siyum, we were zoche to hear derashos from R’ Shmuel Feurst and R’ Shmuel Dishon who emphasized the powerful impact and the Kiddush Hashem of a tzibur who come together to learn Torah. In addition, we had the opportunity to meet and hear divrei chizuk from R’ Shmuel Keller and R’ Zev Cohen. This year, the learning will culminate in a siyum, with Rabbi Yaakov Bender as the guest speaker. Any community members who are interested in coming along should please contact Rabbi Zeiger for chavrusa arrangements with our bochurim. We are looking forward to partnering with the community for this wonderful Kiddush Hashem.
