The Farbrengen started off first with a beautifully prepared seuda followed by the Ma’amer niggun and then the Ma’amer of Bosi Legani was said by five Tmimim of the yeshiva. It was an unbelievable sight when each bochur began his part of the Ma’amer – with eyes closed, full of confidence and pride. Yasher koach to Hatomim Sholi Israel, Hatomim Levy Kamensky, Hatomim Shmueli Coleman, Hatomim Mendy Hahn and Hatomim Meir Roetter for a job well done!
The main points emphasized at the Farbrengen by Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Orimland, Mashpia Rabbi Levi Wilschanski and Maggid Shiur Rabbi Landesman were the Inyonim of Mesiras Nefesh by the Rebbeim which was given over to the Chassidim. Another point stressed was that in order to move forward in life we must let go of any bad experiences that one may have had in the past and once we release them we will be able to climb the ladder of life reaching heights that we never would dream of.

At around 11:00 p.m. a group of Bochurim from other yeshivas joined the Farbrengen. The many stories told and the heartfelt niggunim sung created an atmosphere of tremendous warmth and Achdus amongst all the Bochurim. As one Bochur commented – the feeling was not one of sitting with friends but rather a feeling of family togetherness.
The Farbrengen ended at 4:00 a.m. with the bochurim not wanting to leave. One bochur approached Rabbi ‘O’ and said that even though the Farbrengen is over, the inspiration he received will definitely last a long time!
