Bochurim at the Yeshiva Gedola Lubavitch in London, England, celebrated their anuual Siyum on Sunday, the 5th of Av which is the Yahrtzeit of the Arizal.
In a packed Beis Medrash, Avremi Zippel of Salt Lake City, Utah – second generation student at the Yeshiva – made the conclusion on Kesuvos.
Fiery words of chizuk and encouragement were then delivered by the revered Rosh Yeshivah, Rabbi Yitzchak Meir Hertz, who explained how when one learns Torah they become one with what they learn.
Amongst the rabbis who attended was Morah De’asrah Rabbi Elchonon Halprin, who inspired the crowd with Divrei Torah and Yiras Shomayim.
The guest speaker Rabbi Yossi Chazan, minister of Holy Law South Broughton Hebrew Congregation in Manchester, then addressed the crowd, praising the Bochurim on their great achievment, and wishing them success in their continued learning with extra strength and vigor.
The MC, Mashpia Rabbi Mendel Gordon concluded the evening with words of thanks to the Vogel family who continue to support the Yeshiva which their father R’ Nosson OBM was so instrumental in establishing and supporting. It was in his memory that the dinner was held.
