toras-mosheThe 27th annual dinner of Yeshivas Toras Moshe tonight at Ateres Avrohom Hall in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, will celebrate a number of historic developments for the well-known yeshiva in Yerushalayim. The dinner will mark the 80th anniversary of the arrival of Rav Moshe Soloveitchik zt”l to the United States. It comes at a time when the yeshiva, led by his grandson, Rav Moshe Meiselman, the rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Toras Moshe, is dedicating a new state-of-the-art home for the yeshiva in Sanhedria Murchevet. The actual move took place just days after the rosh yeshiva and a group of 38 talmidim returned from an unprecedented mission to some of the legendary Torah centers of pre-War Eastern Europe.

The 8-day trip to Europe included emotional visits to the renowned yeshivos in Volozhin and Brisk. Upon his return, Rav Meiselman remarked, “This historic visit to the legendary halls of Torah learning in Volozhin and Brisk left an indelible impression upon us and served as a permanent link to the glorious Torah world of yesteryear.”

Those in attendance at the upcoming dinner will be able to recapture these memorable moments by viewing a special audio-visual presentation which includes emotional scenes of Torah learning and davening at places that have not witnessed this since Churban Europe. The group spent a day learning in the famous Volozhiner Yeshiva, the “mother of all yeshivos,” and this was the first time that such learning took place there since World War II. The expedition also included the study of the beginning of Maseches Brachos for a planned Siyum Hashas in memory of the Torah giants and the communities they led.

Against the background of the legacy tour was the yeshiva’s recent move to its new center of learning in Yerushalayim. The three-story structure includes a magnificent bais medrash, a dormitory and a dining center. For hundreds of talmidim and alumni, the new permanent home of the yeshiva is an exciting chapter in the yeshiva’s 27-year existence. It signifies the success of a yeshiva that has educated young talmidei chachomim who are now involved in every area of pursuit in the Torah community, including being marbitzei Torah.

The dinner will pay tribute to the yeshiva’s two beloved ramim, Rav Michel Shurkin and Rav Yehuda Abramowitz, who along with the rosh yeshiva have contributed to the success of this makom Torah. Rav Shurkin gave insightful shiurim to the talmidim on the recent trip to Europe.

The melding of the Torah world of the past with the new dynamic Torah learning center of today will be the theme of the special evening: “80-Year Link to the Torah Centers of Yesteryear.”
