Myself and my wife. No doubt there were others too.

Also worth highlighting how one of the speakers – R. Oelbaum, I think – quoted from Tanya, about what’s accomplished by learning Torah, in his speech. Such a thing would have been almost unimaginable just a few years ago; there has been an enormous increase in Ahavas Yisroel thanks to many Litvishe Gedolim z”l and shlit”a, and I personally experienced it there. We are so ready for Moshiach!

This past Rosh Hashanah was 100 years since the beginning of Daf Hayomi, but this 7 Cheshvan was the 90th anniversary of the passing of Rav Meir Shapiro ZTL.
