bjx-eventHistory was made in Brooklyn last night. There’s finally a place for those who gave up frumkeit to give it another shot and those who grew up secular to learn about their heritage.

Brooklyn Jewish Xperience (BJX) Kiruv Center and Kiruv Kollel, the first all-encompassing Kiruv Center for Kerovim and Rechokim in Brooklyn’s history was inaugurated last night.

Hara Rav Belsky, shlita, Rosh HaYeshiva Torah Vodaas and esteemed Rabbonim, the Bostoner Rebbe; Rav Yosef Rabinowitz of Bnei Torah; Rav Ashkenazy of Horodenka; Rav Yitzchok Steinwurtzel of Beis Efraim; Rav Aharon Rapps, A Rosh Yeshiva who is also a maggid shiur for BJX; Rav Mordechai Twersky of Hornesteipel; Rav Pinchas Frankel of V’Yalopol; as well as the Yungerleit of the Kollel and members of the board of directors, were all present at the kvias mezuzah and chanukas habayis ceremony.

With the assistance of R’ Moshe Caller, devoted Chairman of BJX, Rav Belsky placed a mezuzah on the door and made the beracha on the hanging of the mezuzah.

Mr. Caller spoke beautifully about the unique opportunity we all have to reach out to others and how privileged he feels to be part of the special work of BJX. Rav Yitzchok Fingerer, Rav and Rosh Kollel, offered inspiring and rousing divrei Torah to the prestegious assemblage. He quoted the Gemara in Yevamos says that Moshiach can only come when all the Neshamos are gathered up. He explained that it is our objective to ensure that every Neshama in Brooklyn has the opportunity to be brought closer to Hashem. He cited numerous stories of students whose lives were transformed throught he work of BJX and brought closer to Torah and Mitzvos.

Rav Belsky spoke with members of the Kollel and then offered words of chizuk to the crowd. The Center is magnificent looking and gave the feel of a true oasis and Makom Torah.
