Yagdil Torah, a non-profit promoting learning Torah in Crown Heights, has opened a new center on the ground floor of a private house at 574 Empire Boulevard for its Heichal Halimud Center for Torah Learning.
An inauguration ceremony and ribbon cutting took place on Sunday, with prominent speakers and a tour of the new location.
Equipped with an extensive Seforim library and a “comfortable atmosphere,” Heichal Halimud will be the perfect venue for chavrusa learning, personal study and small shiurim.
The Bais Medrash was dedicated by the Barber family in loving memory of their father R’ Yitzchak ben R’ Eliyahu OBM, and by Chabad philanthropist David Slager and family.
“Inspired by the Rebbe’s Mivtzah Torah campaign, we set out to provide a sanctuary for Anash to sit and learn Torah at leisure,” Yagdil Director Rabbi Levi Browd said.
“As we all know, Limmud Torah is paramount for a strong foundation in both Yiddishkeit and Chassidishkeit.”
