Early Morning Chasidus Shiur Marks Two Years

Dozens of members of the Lubavitch community in Toronto celebrated the 2-year anniversary of their early-morning Chasidus Shiur, which takes place every Tuesday and Thursday at 6:20am – rain, snow or shine.

The organizer of the Shiur, Rabbi Yirmi Cohen, said “at 6:20 am, to have over 15 married men show up, is so heartwarming. I’m sure that the Rebbe is shepping Nachas.”

“I need to do a lot of nudging, reminding, texting, emailing, phone calling, and yes, even bring warm delicious, sizzling Pastries. But when you see such a crowd at the early hour of 6:20 am, thirsty to learn the Rebbe’s beautiful Maamarim, it’s so fulfilling,” he told

Rabbi Cohen wants to personally thank Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Akiva Wagner for always giving a “geshmake” shiur with dedication, Schlepping through the freezing snow of Toronto to give it – even the morning after his wife gave birth!
