In addition to its comprehensive weekly schedule, our Yeshiva offers talmidim a structured schedule over Shabbos. On Friday nights, talmidim experience an Oneg Shabbos at a Rebbi’s home, while enjoying Divrei Torah, zemiros, stories and home-baked treats. This affords them the opportunity to cultivate their relationship with their Rebbi in a relaxed environment. While we usually daven Friday night and Shabbos morning together with community members in HOC, our talmidim enjoy the last few hours of Shabbos in the Yeshiva. Following Mincha, alongside parents and other community members, there is a Shalosh Seudos, accompanied by a shmuess. Shabbos bekius takes place one hour before Mincha in the summer and on מוצאי שבת during the winter.
One of the many benefits of the growth that Yeshiva has seen this year is the fact that the Yeshiva’s minyan is now self-sufficient, and we are able to sustain our minyanim throughout the week. As such, we plan to designate Shabbos פרשת ויצא as a “Yeshiva Shabbos”, with Shabbos minyanim taking place in the Yeshiva building. We hope that this Shabbos serves to provide chizuk to talmidim and hanhala alike. Between Kabbalas Shabbos and Maariv and then again before Mussaf, we look forward to hearing Divrei Torah pertaining to Shabbos, with practical suggestions how to help enhance Shabbos and maximize the ruchniyus potential it can give us.
