At Yeshivas Lubavitch Toronto, over 1850 Blatt of Gemarah and 420 Maamarim were learned by heart this year.
This was a successful year of learning and growing in chassidishkeit. All at Yeshivas Lubavitch are celebrating the culmination of two major year long Mivtzas: one in Chasidus and one in Nigleh. The Chassidus Mivtza was to learn and get tested on the entire Sefer HaMamorim Meluket Beis; the Nigla Mivtza was to learn and get tested on the entire or most of Masechet Shabbos: 156 blatt!
Boruch Hashem, there was a reason to celebrate, with 14 bochurim finishing the entire Sefer HaMamorim Meluket Beis and over 20 bochurim participating in Mivtza Torah: 8 of them learning the whole masechta and others doing most of it. There were even a few Bochurim who did both of the mivtzas.
An end of the year ceremony was held at which the Bochurim were given their award certificate and prizes, and they also heard a few words from their esteemed Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Akiva Wagner and Magid Shiur Rabbi Leibel Ceitlin; in addition, two bochurim made siyumim on learning Meseches Shabbos and the Sefer Maamarim Meluket Bais respectively.
Thanks to all those who helped make this possible including the Hanholo, the Shluchim of the Yeshiva, the sponsors, and of course the Bochurim.
