The Chicago community together with alumni of the Telshe Yeshiva of Chicago worldwide will gather tonight for the long-awaited yovel dinner of Telshe Yeshiva. The monumental celebration will take place this evening at the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Chicago and will feature the venerable roshei yeshiva as distinguished honorees.
A half century ago, Rav Avrohom Chaim Levin and, lhbcl”c, Rav Chaim Schmelczer zt”l arrived in Chicago with twelve talmidim to found the fledgling yeshiva. One year later, they were joined by Rav Chaim Dov Keller. Now, five decades and thousands of talmidim later, the yeshiva will celebrate this milestone with over a thousand attendees, including more than 200 alumni and guests from out of town.
The guest speaker will be internationally renowned speaker and historian Rav Berel Wein, one of the founders of the yeshiva and a brother-in-law of Rav Levin and Rav Keller.
