Heeding the call of the Rebbeim that “Torah study ought to take
place in the Beis Midrash specifically“, Yagdil Torah’s Thursday
night Beis Midrash program launched in Kollel Menachem with over 40
“You have to learn in a Beis Midrash, in an environment of Torah,
not just for you but for the people who observe you” said Rabbi Y.Y.
Paltiel who helped launch the program with words of inspiration.
Aiming to provide a practical and inspiring place to study that
generates an atmosphere of community-wide learning, Yagdil Torah
arranges chaburos, organizes chavrusas, and provides study
“There must be a place for people to learn at all times,” said
Rabbi Yosef Heller a senior Rov in Crown Heights.
While many Anash members came with a chavrusa, several linked up
at the program or joined a chabura, as others learnt on their own.
“I greatly enjoyed it,” said one participant. “A very attractive
program,” shared his chavrusa.
Current plans call for expanding the program, adding more nights
to the schedule, organizing chavrusas and chaburas for every
participant who requests, and inviting in and out of town Rabonim
and Mashpiim to give shiurim.
“…your job is to learn, daven, and 'light up' the city.… The
place of a Yid is in Shul,” writes the Frierdiker Rebbe in Sefer
The entire community is invited to join. The Beis Midrash is
located in Kolel Menachem 1493 Union St. (Corner of Kingston) and
starts at 8:30 PM. More information is available at
This weeks learning will be dedicated to ensure the safety of
the Yidden in Eretz Yisroel
