(Photo & Video links in extended article) In honor of the second Yohrtzeit of the beloved father, mentor and Rebbe Reb Elya Baruch Finkel Zatzal, from the MIR Yerushalayim, Talmidim will be holding a Yohrtzeit Seudah this evening in conjunction with a Siyum on Shas, L’illui Nishmas Reb Elya Baruch Ben Reb Moishe Finkel Zatzal. Speakers will include, Hagaon Reb Shmuel Aurbach Shlita, Reb Yosef Eichnstien Shlita (Rosh Yeshivah Rabeinu Yaakov Yosef of Edison), Reb Yechiel Spiro Shlita from Baltimore and Reb Lazer Yudel Finkel Shlitah, son of Reb Elya Baruch Zatzal. The event will be taking place at the Esther Gerber Hall (6th and Madison Avenue) beginning at 7:30 p.m., followed by a Hot Buffet.
The word of ’Rebbee’s’ passing shocked thousands around the globe, after he suffered a massive Heart Attack shortly after returning from Yeshivah. He was 60 years old. May he be a Meilitz Yosher for his family, Talmidim and all of Klal Yisroel.
Also at the event, will be the launching of the ‘Mechon’ which will be releasing the approximately 75,000 Ksovim written by Reb Elya Baruch Zatzal. The first Sefer on Kedushin is expected to be released for the next Z’man.
