Bais Medrash L’Torah has teamed up with the community in Margate, NJ and started a learning program on Thursday evenings. Three 20 minute shiurim are given on various topics by Rabbi Yosef Trocki, Rabbi Shimon Mandel and Rabbi Yoel Deutch.

On Thursday parshas Shelach, 23 Sivan, June 13th, Rabbi Yisroel Chaim Jankelewitz was Muchtar as Rov of the James Street Shul. The Shul has elected Rabbi Jankelewitz to be the Rov after an overwhelming majority of the kehilla has been drawn to his great character, his vast knowledge of Halacha and his many talents. It is a great simcha for the Semicha chabura and for Bais Medrash L’Torah as a whole. The hachtara was attended by the many mispallelim of the kehilla and the b’nei hachabura. Rabbi Shmuel Felder Shlit”a spoke and attested to Rabbi Jankelowitzs’ great qualities for this position. Other speakers were Rabbi Kahn of the William Street Shul where the Rov has been a mispallel for many years and the Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Yisroel Goldblatt.
Mazel Tov to Rabbi Dovid Ganz, Shimon ganz; Nasi Hayeshiva of Bais Medrash L’Torah and Ari Ganz upon the pidyon haben of their [great[grand]]son.
Rabbi Yechiel Drillman Shlit”a formerly 10th grade Magid Shiur at the Yeshiva of Edison has joined Bais Medrash L’Torah. Rabbi Drillman gives a chabura once a week during second seder and a vaad every other Tuesday during first seder.
Bais Medrash L’Torah hosts a Shidduch Event four times a year where several shadchanim are brought to yeshiva. Bochurim from all over can come and speak to them and hear prospective shidduch ideas. Over the years we have seen many beautiful shidduchim come about from these events. The upcoming event will be at yeshiva 613 Madison Ave. on Tuesday June 15th starting at 7:45 in the evening. A hot buffet and sushi will be served.
There was a great need for a Yeshiva where working bochurim can learn with a chavrusa in the morning or evening. Bais Medrash L’Torah made that a reality by creating a setting just for them. Rabbi Moshe Aron Sonnensohn, Rabbi Zevi Mandel, Rabbi Yosef Trocki and Rabbi Chaim Goldblatt are in charge of helping them be kovea ittim l’torah, setting them up with chavrusos and helping them with anything they may need b’ruchniyos and b’gashmiyos.
If you are interested in a chavrusa or know someone that may be interested please call Rabbi Chaim Goldblatt at (732) 228-1022.
