Over the past 15 weeks, the Avos U’Bonim of Anash in Manchester (UK) have been sitting down to learn together every Motzoei Shabbos.
The Beis Menachem branch, one of the 14 branches in Manchester of the Worldwide Avos U’Bonim program is run by dedicated Rabbi Yoel Niasoff. On Motzoei Shabbos Parshas Vayakhel, a prize giving event was held to celebrate the end of the winter season of Avos U’Bonim.
A Dvar Torah was given by Zalman Coleman. Rabbi Peretz Chein, the Shliach to Cheadle, South Manchester, spoke to the Avos U’Bonim.
Pizza, chips and pareve hot dogs were served with the help of Mrs. Raizy Niasoff with Mrs. Nechoma Goodman. Musical entertainment was provided by Menachem Liberow.
On behalf of the Avos U’Bonim, R’ Dovid Pink thanked Rabbi Yoel Niasoff for his dedication and time not just in looking after the program but for organizing the prize giving as well and presented him with a Set of Birurei Chumash.
As a prize for attending the program the boys were presented with Siddurim, Tehillim, Mincha and Maarivs depending on the number of sessions they attended.
The grand raffle for seforim and book tokens was held and the evening ended with benching and dancing.
Rabbi Niasoff thanked those who had helped out especially the sponsors of the prizes and the food for the Prize-giving.
