Last night’s historic event in Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia of Adirei Hatorah, beheld over 20,000 Bnei Torah. The event commenced with HaRav Chaim Ginsberg Shlit”a leading the Oilam with Tehillim, then Divrie Bracha from the Rosh HaYeshiva HaRav Malkiel Kotler shlit”a. Then having arrived special for the event all the way from Eretz Yisrael, the Chevron Rosh Yeshiva HaRav Dovid Cohen shlit”a spoke, followed was a Siyum HaShas by yungeleit of Bais Medrash Govoha on Talmud Bavli and Yerushalmi lead by the Rosh Yeshiva HaRav Yisroel Newman shlit”a. Closing the event was the passionate Drasha of HaRav Ephraim Wachsman shlit”a. Throughout the evening there was niggunim by Chazzon Adler, Shira Choir, Yanky Danskel, Isaac Konig, and Dovi Meisels.
The entrance of the Roshei Yeshiva of Bais Medrash Govoha was greeted by enthusiasm and singing showing a tremendous of Kavod HaTorah by all those in attendance, and was repeated upon the arrival of the Philadelphia Rosh Yeshiva HaRav Shmuel Kamenetsky Shlit”a . The Dais was filled by many of the Gedolei Rabbanim of America, Morai D’asra throughout Lakewood, and Roshei Chabura of Bais Medrash Govoha.
The event comes after the monumental initiative of tripling the kollel checks for the yungeleit of Bais Medrash Govoha, lead by the ambitious philanthropist R’ Lazer (Louie) Scheiner. The legendary gathering’s purpose was to give kavod to the Torah and those who devote their lives toiling in it. The hope is that it will inspire others to delve in Torah, whether all day or as much as they can, as well as support it knowing as all the Rabbonim stated throughout the night how it is the life-blood of Klal Yisrael and holds up the world.
