    It’s from a Yud Tes Kislev Farbrengen, either 5722 or 5723.
    It’s not in the lunchroom.
    On Yud Tes Kislev all the Mesivta bochurim would get together in the Beis Medrash, joined by all the Roshei Yeshivos and Mashpiyim, for a Farbrengen.

    It looks like many (or all) of them are wearing ties! When did bochurim stop wearing ties? It would be nice if bochurim would know that they have a shlichus and like all shluchim, they ought to wear ties to remind them of their shlichus.
