"I live in Pittsburgh, PA, and have a regular day job. Most of my learning is done on the bus or while walking. You have great resources to help keep me learning and participating in things. I have enjoyed the Mishnayos printouts for 9 Kislev and 13 Tishrei."

Michoel Dovid Leopold

"I have been to other communities and I can't express enough how fortunate we are to have an organization like Yagdil Torah where you can walk down the street and see, 'Oh, a shiur on this, another shiur on this,' always learning and you never have to worry."

Menachem Mendel Simon

"Here more than any other place in Crown Heights have I been able to really 'chap' more of the Torah and the Rebbe's Sichos and more of the inspiration that Chassidus has to offer."

Ari Pfeffer

“I heard about Yagdil Torah’s 20 hour open-door policy and decided I had to check it out for myself. I went there at about 12:45 AM and was amazed to find people learning. I sat down and before I knew it, an hour had passed as if it was only 5 minutes… The undisturbed, quiet atmosphere made it a pleasure.

I got hooked.

I guess my newfound pleasure was noticed by my friends and neighbors – they joined too. The secret is out: If anyone wants to learn in a quiet, heimishe place, this is it.”

Shlomo Ezagui

“To have a comfortable place in the Shechunah where everyone can sit and learn is great enough, but to have so many shiurim available on a regular basis, finding chavrusas, encouraging people - especially through your wonderful newsletter -on top of that? Incredible.

But what is most amazing for me is that all the shiurim are available for me to enjoy in Miami Beach! I’m a regular listener to your shiurim on Chassidus, Nigleh, and Halachoh L'Maaseh.

Keep up the amazing work, and have tremendous hatzlochah!”

Shmuel Mendelsohn - Mashpia of Yeshivah Torah Ohr in North Miami Beach

"One of the Yagdil Torah tactics I admire is the exposure of existing Torah learning as a means of inspiring others."

Rabbi Yoseph Paltiel - Mashpia United Lubavitcher Yeshivah, Chovevei Torah

"Yagdil Torah is breathing vital life into our community. The efforts of the organization are not only important, but crucial for our very existence.

So thank you Levi and the Yagdil Torah team, for bringing us life!"

Rabbi Yossi Pels - Co-Director Chayeinu Publications

"The study of Torah each day is critical for every member of our community. It will broaden our horizons, make us happier, healthier, more wholesome people, better humans, husbands and fathers. It will challenge us to grow and live our lives to the fullest. Yagdil Torah-the way to go!"

Rabbi Yoseph Jacobson - Dean TheYeshivah.net

A full crowd of men and women gathered this past Motzei Shabbos for the fourth annual Melava Malka of Yagdil Torah held at the Razag Ballroom in Crown Heights.

The guest speaker was Rabbi Issamar Ginzberg of Israel, and the evening's honorees were Mr. Yerachmiel Jacobson and Rabbi Menachem Mendel Wolf who saluted the organization driven to spread Torah learning throughout the Crown Heights community through shiurim, publications and other projects.

Chief among their activities is the Heichal Halimud Tiferes Yitzchok, the study center on Empire Blvd, which BE"H has not been closed for even a single day since its opening in Elul, 5770. They have also recently opened a second stunning Beis Medrash.

Rabbi Levi Browd founded Yagdil Torah along with his wife, Batsheva, to perpetuate the memory of their first born son, Menachem Mendel.

"The event served to inspire participants and to thank the honorees for what they have done for the Crown Heights community," remarked Browd.

"Thank you to all the supporters who enabled us to achieve this success in the past eight years, and thank you to the thousands who participated by learning; whether at a shiur, in the Heichal Halimud or with one of our print or online publications," he said.

A beautiful selection of rare and unique niggunim was presented by Mendy J and Shimmy Brod, as guests enjoyed a delicious meal and entertainment by Ventriloquist Jonathan Geffner. He was a hit with the crowd laughing over and over. "The elegant ambiance was the perfect setting for the evening which ran seamlessly and kept everyone captivated," said one attendee.

What Was It All About? Tes Kislev 5774

[click on images to view full gallery]

Yagdil Torah's 3rd Annual Melave Malka Dinner took place this past Motzei Shabbos in Oholei Torah. What was it like? What are the highlights?

In all honesty, it's nearly impossible to sum up the event in a few words, because it was so many different things all at once. It was:

  • A potent dose of inspiration for our daily lives.

Dayan Raskin and others gave encouragement, tips and motivation for increasing in Limmud Torah in our daily lives. Many people came away with new insights and commitment ideas.

  • A show of identifying with and support for Yagdil Torah.

Whether people came to support Yagdil Torah, or out of respect or admiration for our estimable honorees, the hall was packed. When the evening was over, people felt differently in their outlooks, specifically when pertaining to Yagdil Torah. After witnessing the effects on our community, it was impossible to remain unchanged.

  • A moment of learning about the inner workings of Yagdil Torah.

Many know the overall purpose of Yagdil Torah is to "promote Limmud HaTorah"-but what does this mean? How do we go about it? Those who came to the dinner gained a deeper understanding of what goes on behind the scenes, and how much is accomplished every single day.

  • A way of showing appreciation to the honorees and what they have done for the community.

Each of our honorees has a specific role in this community, and many who attended the dinner did so for them. Those who joined in the evening in their honor, whether through attending or submitting ads, added an extra element in appreciation for what these men do.

  • Accompanied by a very satisfying menu served by Exquisite Catering, Streimel-style comedy by famed Badchan Yankel Miller, and extraordinary music by Yossi Cohen and Yehuda Piamenta. It was definitely not a night to be missed.

 

Our honorees, Dr. Robert Feldman, Mr. Oren Popper and Rabbi Gershon Sellinger, stressed how happy they were with the work of Yagdil Torah and urged dinner attendees to tap into its many learning outlets.

Those who were unable to attend can still be part of Yagdil Torah's work. Donating to our organization ensures its continuation and expansion. Donate today to be a part of it all and make a difference in Limmud Torah.
