Since Rabbi Yitzi Hurwitz moved to LA after being diagnosed with ALS, the support that has been supplied by the bochurim and the community has been remarkable.
It started with a minyan for kriah on Mondays and Thursdays, then a weekly shiur with the Rosh Mesivta, Rabbi Farkash, a minyan every shabbos and much more. Recently the community and bochurim have been coming together for kumzitzes and farbrengens.
This year with the advice of Rabbi Zvi Boyarsky, a daily minyan shachris was set up as well as a daily shiur. In addition to all this, the bochurim started arranging guest speakers to come and give a shiur at Rabbi Yitzi’s home. Then suddenly the Coronavirus came to town and all the activities came to a screeching halt.
Yet out of their love for Rabbi Yitzi, the Bochurim arranged a daily video conference with Rabbi Yitzi and invite a guest speaker to entertain them. Whether a shiur on a sicha, telling over their life story, zichronos etc. There have been many fascinating shiurim/discussions. When the bochurim reached out to Rabbi YY Jacobson to give one of these classes, he was enthusiastic about the idea and readily agreed to host a video call. The Bochurim were asked to make this particular video chat open to the public.
Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity to connect with 2 world-renowned Chassidim learning their Rebbe’s Torah! Tune in on Thursday, March 19 at 1:00 PM EST.
