Over 160 young men and women from Melbourne’s Young-Yeshivah community gathered for a Hakhel Melava-Malka – a third-anniversary celebration of gratitude and support, last Motzei Shabbos.
Young-Yeshivah is a satellite community of Melbourne’s Yeshivah Centre, and caters to Jewish singles, couples and families ranging from the not-yet-twenties through the past-thirties. Initiatives include Shabbos and Yom Tov Minyanim, Shiurim, women’s and men’s events, family gatherings and so much more.
The event was opened by the evening’s master-of-ceremonies, Yossi Herbst, who thanked the current committee members for all their hard work, and announced a number of exciting new initiatives going forward.
Rabbi Shmuel Lesches spoke of the significance of a three-year milestone in Torah, and the connection to both the 15th of Elul as well as Chai Elul. The keynote speaker, Rabbi Levi Wineberg of South Africa, congratulated the Kehillah on reaching this important achievement, and thought-provokingly challenged them to continue striving for growth and change.
Young-Yeshivah thanks the Yeshivah Centre for their continued support. Young-Yeshivah also thanks the organising sub-committe for all their hard work and dedication: Shaina Nagel, Avigal Wonder, Dani Slonim, Shterna Adelist, Tzena Ajzensmidt, Yossi Herbst, Leible Sziewicz.
