Tish Chatanim 5776 / 2015

Shavua tov-
I just wanted to share with all of you a quick report of a great event that was held in yeshiva last night.

This year the yeshiva honored “Moshko” with Chatan Torah and Rabbi Dov Karoll with Chatan Bereishit.  For those who don’t know, Moshko founded the yeshiva (as well as Alon Shevut, Efrat, and more).  Rabbi Karoll was honored for having served as the personal assistant to HaRav Aharon Lichtenstein zt”l for the last few years of his life.

For the last many years, the chatanim have been honored at a tish the first Shabbat of zman, with speeches by the roshei yeshiva and attendance by the ramim and talmidim.  In recognition of the fact that Moshko does not live in Alon Shevut, the yeshiva made this year’s tish on motzei Shabbat.

Stay tuned for audio/video and pictures on the yeshiva facebook and youtube accounts.  It was really a special event and some of the highlights were stories from Moshko about how he got the original funding for the yeshiva building and the government approval for all his plans to rebuild Gush Etzion, and some great stories about HaRav Lichtenstein zt”l from Rabbi Karoll.
Kol tuv,
