Tonight: Novominsker Rebbe to Address 47th Pirchei Agudas Yisroel National Siyum Mishnayos


novominskerThe Novominsker Rebbe, Rosh Agudas Yisroel, will address this year’s Pirchei Agudas Yisroel of America’s 47th Annual National Siyum Mishnayos, al shem Harav Yehoshua Silbermintz, zt”l.

The Siyum will be taking placeĀ  tonight at The Palace in Borough Park, and will celebrate thousands of Mishnayos learned throughout the year by elementary-age yeshiva boys in the United States, either through the Kesser Mishnayos program or at their local Pirchei branches. Present as well, be”H, will be 30 boys who have completed Shisha Sidrei Mishna and who will take part in a special bechina preceding the Siyum. They will also be honored with places at the dais, as well as with a special gathering in their honor to be held in June, at which they will receive a Shas.

This year’s Siyum is dedicated to the memory of two Gedolei Yisroel who were niftar this past year: Harav Zelik Epstein, zt”l, Rosh Yeshivas Shaar HaTorah; and The Bostoner Rebbe, Harav Levi Yitzchok Horowitz, zt”l

The Siyum will feature a special video presentation on the life of Rav Avrohom Pam zt”l Rosh Yeshiva Yeshiva Torah Vodaas. Rabbi Fishel Shachter, Rebbe, Yeshiva Torah Vodaas and renowned storyteller, will serve as the event’s Master of Ceremonies.

Divrei bracha will be delivered by Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zwiebel, executive vice president of Agudas Yisroel of America.

The Siyum Mishnayos, the premier Torah event of the year for boys, has been inspiring budding talmidei chachomim yearly since its inception 47 years ago. Mechanchim and baalei batim alike have warm memories of past Siyumei Mishnayos they themselves attended; now they take pride in the Siyumei Mishnayos-attendance of their children and grandchildren.
