A group of fourteen students from Chabad Yeshivas across Israel are traveling to Almaty – Alma Ata in Kazakhstan to study Torah in close proximity to the Ohel of the Rebbe’s father, Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson OBM.
Hailing from across Israel – from Migdal Ha’emek in the north to Kiryat Gat in the south, and from Kfar Chabad and Bnei Brak to Ohr Yehuda and Netanya, the bochurim will spend 10 days studying Torah in honor of the Yartzeit of Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson on 20 Av.
This is the fourth consecutive year that students have made the trip to Yeshivas Oholei Levi Yitzchak in Kazakhstan, which is sponsored by businessmen Avi Shaulson of Florida and Shmuel Stern of Crown Heights.
This year, several young students who have completed their studies in elementary school and will start learning in Mesivta this coming year are joining the group.
The students will also be involved in activities to inspire the study of Chassidus with the local community.
Rabbi Shmaryahu Butman has compiled a special study booklet for the students is accompanying the students. Rabbi Betzalel Lifschitz is responsible for the arrangements and liaison with the local authorities.
