[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 cold weather, sending some talmidim inside the yeshiva building for the tumult, which is traditionally held outside.
Following chavrusah tumult, chaburos and seats will be finalized for the thousands of talmidim in the yeshiva. The yeshiva has appointed special memunim tasked with the responsibility of helping any talmid who requires a chavrusah or chaburah.
This zeman, the official yeshiva mesechta is Maseches Gittin. 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.
