The Lubavitcher Yeshiva Simcha Hall on Crown and Albany in Crown Heights was swarming with hundreds of boys this past Thursday evening, 24 Sivan, ready to receive their long-awaited “sefarim vouchers” that they earned this year by attending Yeshivas Erev.
Rabbi Z. Sorkin, the dynamic coordinator of Yeshivas Erev, opened up the grand finale with words of praise for all of the boys that devoted every evening of the week to further themselves in Limud Hatorah – some reviewing their Gemara, others joining the Mishnas Gavriel Project, still others doing their homework and some learning Mishnayos and Tanya Bal Peh.
An amazing “kitzur” project was launched in our Yeshivas Erev in memory of Rabbi Y. K. Marlow.
Every evening after completing their homework the boys learned together 10 simanim in “kitzur” not covered in their regular school curriculum. After completing each siman they would answer questions and then be tested.
All boys receiving 100 % received a cash award of $25 while those receiving 80% or above were given $18.
The following boys were the top winners of the “Kitzur Project”:
Yoni Ben-Abou, Ari Brashevitzky, Nochum Dubroff, Schneur Zalman Feldman, Mendel Fogelman, Moishe Freeman, Chaim Garelik, Shalom Ber Gershovitz, Moishe Goldshmid , Nosson Gourarie, Yisroel Gurkow, Eli Heber, Zalman Kozliner, Avraham Chaim Kozlovsky , Shimon Namirovski, Schneur Zalman Newman, Mendel Okunov, Mendel Pevzner, Shmaya Prus, Levi Rainitz, Mendel Sall, Yakov Moshe Selinger, Sosover Sosover, Mendel Spielman, Chayim Vogel, Mendel Wilhelm.
When Rabbi Mordechai Gurary מרא דאתרא of חברה ש”ס addressed the boys they were mesmerized by his description of how valuable their Torah learning really is.
Rabbi Sorkin then thanked all of the Mashgichim and older Bochurim for their great devotion to the boys that made this year such an outstanding one. He presented each of them with a beautiful gift as a token of appreciation
The evening was also the climax of the Birchas Hanehenin project of 5778 where the boys reviewed the proper Brochos for over 500 foods based on the psakim of Rabbi Yehuda Kalman Marlow OBM. The project is לעילוי נשמת חיים מנחם .(מענדל )בן ראובן ופעסי בת שמואל יוסף

Finally the evening was concluded with presenting to each of the boys that attended the Yeshivas Erev with a “sefarim voucher” to be cashed in at Kehot. The amount each boy received was based on his attendance and accomplishments during the past year.
Yeshivas Erev will continue iy”h this summer in the Agudah Shul on Crown Street in the evening from 7:00pm to 8:00pm, beginning on Tues. 6 Tammuz לעילוי נשמת הרב אליהו ציון בן חנני’ ומרת ברוכה.
