Bochurim Spend Summer in Africa

A group of 770 bochurim are spending 8 summer weeks in the heart of Central Africa learning and teaching local Jews.

A group of bochurim from the 770 Yeshiva are currently spending 8 weeks in the heart of Central Africa learning and teaching local Jews.

These bochurim wished to spend quality time learning and at the same time contribute to the Rebbe's Shlichus program in Africa.

They are Levi Abelsky, Yosef Baumgarten, Bentzion Brook, Yehuda Drizin, Shmuel Levine, Efraim Karp, Yossi Krasnjanki, and Peretz Lazaroff.

"What makes this group so unique is that it includes bochurim from the first three groups (summer 5771, Kvutzahs 5772 and 5773 as well as one of the eltere bochurim for the upcoming Kvutzah of 5774," said Rabbi Shlomo Bentolila of the Congo.

He said the third Kvutzah (5774) is almost complete with 8 new bochurim and an eltere Bachur/Meishiv to depart immediately after Shabbos Breishis.

upstairs 770
it's nice to see some of the 770 boys are still at it.
the rest of us get a 4 month brake (Tamuz-Cheshvon).
the Rosh Yeshiva is most definitely "shepping" loads of nachas.
P.s. not that most of the shiur goers are out of town, does anyone know if the rosh yeshive is still giving the shiur?

Thank-you Rabbi Bentolia for creating this program.my son had a good year B"H
(7/10/2013 1:41:32 PM)
From an appreciative parent
My son learnt in the Congo and all I can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU and again THANK YOU to Rabbi & Mrs Bentolila for all the love, warmth and personal attention given to each Bachur. Not to mention that no expense was spared, the vaccination, taxis, tickets, visas, medical attention if and when needed, phone, etc. My son and his friends had an experience of a lifetime.
I'm just too embarrassed to sign my name as i did not thank you sooner . Sometime we need a reminder...
