In the summer of 5766, a precious little boy completed his task in this world. Rabbi and Mrs. Levy and Batsheva Browd developed an organization in memory of their eldest son, מנחם מענדל בן יבדל"ח לוי יצחק ז"ל, after discovering that Sifsei Kohen al HaTorah says that a b’chor is particularly connected to the inyon of Limmud Torah.
