[Photos below.] This past week, Matzav.com shared with you coverage of the large chavrusah tumult at Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, NJ, to begin the zeman.
The following collection of pictures is from the chavrusah tumult held this week at Yeshivas Brisk on Rechov Press in Yerushalayim, which is led by its rosh yeshiva, Rav Avrohom Yehoshua Soloveitchik. The hundreds of talmidim of the yeshiva gathered on the street, as well as in and around the yeshiva, to set up their chavrusos for the coming zeman.
Once a bochur in Yeshivas Brisk has his chavrusos arranged, he must procure a seat, which is also a process of sorts, as various seats are already taken from the previous zeman. There is also the question of whose shiur the bochur will attend. Many bochurim seek to enter Rav Avrohom Yehoshua’s shiur but must first receive special permission from the rosh yeshiva. Many attend the popular shiur delivered by Rav Moshele Soloveitchik, a brother of the rosh yeshiva.
