220 Bochurim Shteiging At Camp Achim


bochurim-learning220 mesivta and bais medrash bochurim of Yeshiva Darchei Torah of Far Rockaway, NY, are nearing the end of a successful month of learning and recreation at Camp Achim. The camp is located in the Catskill region, in Leeds, 33 miles south of Albany, New York. Rabbeim who are there include the rosh yeshiva, Rav Shlomo Avigdor Altusky; Rav Shmuel Feldman; Rav Binyomin Cherney (now in Sh’or Yoshuv during the year), Rav Matis Pincus, Rav Shimon Dov Notis, Rav Yisroel Meir Stern, Rav Dovid Bender and Rav Moshe Bender, who leads the program. Kollel fellow Rav Yossi Reisman is a sho’el umaishiv. (Eleventh grade rebbi Rav Yosef Warman is the camp’s learning director.) 

The bochurim are learning Maseches Pesachim, and have ample use each day of the camp’s facilities, including ball fields, basketball courts and the swimming pool.

 Last Shabbos, Rav Moshe Bender made a Kiddush in honor of the birth of his daughter, and the zaide, Rosh HaYeshiva Rav Yaakov Bender, came for Shabbos.

  1. Darchei is Good but there is no reason to write this. I don’t care about it. I don’t go because it’s anotther month of Yeshivah. But it’s a great program. Keep it Up.

  2. We owe a big big Hakoras Hatov to R’ Shaya Dovid Willner, who runs this camp in such an amazing toradike way, enabling shteiging like this to take place.
    On every Shabbos besides for the regular learning groups, after the shabbos day seudah, nearly 325 boys (young boys) sit and learn for two hours!!
    Yasher Koach and keep it up!!
