Lakewood Yarchei Kallah Departs in 3 Weeks

yk 14The long awaited Lakewood Yarchei Kallah will soon be heading to Eretz Yisroel. For the fourth year, Lakewood Baalei Batim are anticipating a stimulating week replete with insight and inspiration.

A full program is planned complete with learning, shiurim and shmussim from distinguished Roshei Yeshivah and Rabbanim, as well as private audiences with Gedolei Yisroel.

The Yarchei Kallah was originally conceptualized by a group of Baalei Batim in Lakewood who approached the renowned Maggid Shiur and esteemed Rov of Khal Tiferes Mordechai , Rav Eliezer Apter shlita, to lead the program.

The program will begin on Sunday, Jan. 12 and will be ending on Thursday evening, Jan. 16. The program and lodgings will be at The Prima Palace Hotel in Yerushalayim. The full days will feature an inspiring and invigorating schedule of shiurim, including morning Daf Yomi, shuiurim on contemporary Halacha and Divrei Chizuk. The two learning sedarim will focus on the Sugya of Arvos Bemitzvos Vehamisasef (Rosh Hashana daf chof tes).

Shiurim and shmussim on the Sugya D’Kallah and on various other topics will be given by leading Roshei Yeshiva and Rabbonim amongst them Hagaon Rav Eliyohu Meir Levine shlita, Rosh Kollel Ohel Shmuel; Hagaon Rav Shmuel Chodosh shlita, Rosh Yeshiva Ohr Elchonon; Hagaon Rav Moshe Shternbuch shlita, RAV”D  Haeida Hachareidis; Hagaon Rav Refoel Reichman shlita, Rosh Kollel Meah Shearim; Hagaon Rav Dovid Cohen shlita, Rosh Yeshiva Chevron; Hagaon Rav Avrohom Chaim Feuer shlita; Rav in Shchunat Shaarei Chesed; Hagaon Rav Yehuoshu Eichenstien shlita, Rosh Yeshiva Yad Aharon;  Hagaon Rav Moshe Carlebach shlita, Rav Maareches Hakashrus; Hagaon Rav Mordechai Goldstien shlita, Rav and AB”D Ramat Beit Shemesh; Hagaon Rav Reuven Leuchter shlita, Ra”m and Mashpia in Yeshivos in E”Y.

yk 2013On Wednesday, the Yarchei kallah will travel to Bnei Brak where they will meet with Gedolim, including Maran Hagaon Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita, Maran Hagaon Rav Aharo Leib Steinman shlita, and Maran Hagaon Rav Nissim Karelitz shlita and Maran Hagaon Rav Berel Povarsky shlita. They will also share a special lunch reception in the city hall of Bnei Brak together with the Mayor of Bnei Brak, Rav Chanoch Zeibert as well as the Lakewood/Bnei Brak liason R’ Eli Hoder. The lunch reception will be graced with the personages of Hagaon Rav Shmuel Yaakov Borenstien shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Kiryas Melech, and Hagaon Rav Yehuda Aryeh Dunner shlita, Rov of Bais Medrash Divrei Shir.  The group will then proceed to Cholon to have a private audience with and hear divrei chizuk from Hagaon Rav Yitzchok Zilberstien shlita, Rav of Ramat Elchonon and son in law of Rav Elyashiv.

The Yarchei Kallah will end on Thursday evening with a closing Mesiba. In the past years, this Mesiba was an emotional high point as the participants looked back at the tremendous amount of ruchnius they gained during a few short days and were able to soak in the atmosphere of Torah and Kedusha that permeated the entire Yarchei Kallah.

As one of the participants succinctly described, “The previous Yarchei Kallahs were an amazing success and extremely special. Members related that they were incredibly inspired and this inspiration lasted throughout the entire year! The warm feelings generated were incomparable. Past participants as well as newcomers to the Yarchei Kallah have been anticipating this year’s programs for months. We all are looking forward to experience this wonderful inspiration again.”
