[Video and photos below.] Lakewood, NJ – A large crowd gathered yesterday at Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, NJ, to kick off the tri-annual chavrusah tumult that takes place before each zeman – winter, spring, and at the beginning of Chodesh Elul. Yesterday’s gathering saw beautiful weather, with few clouds overhead.
The chavrusah tumult was quite large, despite the fact that no new bochurim entered the yeshiva this zeman; admittance to Beth Medrash Govoha is only after Sukkos and Pesach. This zeman, chaburos and chavrusos generally remained the same as last zeman. For those individuals who required new chavrusos, yeshiva-appointed memunim were on hand to assist.
The official yeshiva masechta is Maseches Bava Metziah. During first seder, the yeshiva is learning the beginning of Perek Eilu Metzios. In various botei medrash, the yeshiva has chaburos devoted to covering virtually every area of Shas and poskim, offering many options for the yeshiva‘s talmidim to choose from.
