[Video and photos below.] 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 outside was a bit smaller than usual, partially due to the humidity and heat, with many making their way indoors, to the air-conditioned dining room in the Israel Henry Beren Hall building.
Also contributing to the smaller crowd is the fact that no new bochurim entered the yeshiva this zeman; admittance to Beth Medrash Govoha is only after Sukkos and Pesach.
Chavrusah tumult is continuing today, and chaburos and seats will be finalized for the thousands of talmidim in the yeshiva.
This zeman, the official yeshiva mesechta at Beth Medrash Govoha is Maseches Nedarim. 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.
