BMG Serves 1,200,000 Meals a Year


bmg-smallThat Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, NJ, has grown exponentially is no surprise. As the largest yeshiva in the Diaspora, it is home to thousands of bnei Torah, both bochurim and yungeleit, who learn on a number of large campuses and in various cavernous botei medrash.

Interestingly, according to a recent bulletin provided by the yeshiva, Beth Medrash Govoha’s kitchen, let bits chief chef Arye Spielman, serves over 23,000 meals a week. That’s 3,825 meals a day…and 1,200,000 meals a year.

  1. why suddenly are there so many posts on trivia. Did matzav recently hire an actuary?
    I would like to know how many blatt gemara are learned in BMG every year. Now thats interesting information!

  2. make sure to pic up the wonderful volumes of chiddusie Torah published each year by the talmidim of the yeshiva. It is fantastic. I forget the name of it, but I have really enjoyed them. I even got an idea from there for a drasha by my son’s bris. I think it’s called Nehora’ee or something like that

  3. As a former yungerman at BMG (I left not long ago), I must give a heartfelt yesher koach to Reb Arye and his staff, including, Reb Shui Cohen, and all the workers who do a great job and make very tasteful food. Thank you for all your hard work.

  4. BMG is an amazing yeshiva. If you’ve never visited, go there one day during the zman. You will be blown away!`
