[Photos below.] A large crowd of residents of Shikun Skver recently attended the “Kvius Ittim LaTorah” gathering held in the main Skverer Bais Medrash to mark the beginning of the winter zeman. The event was geared not only toward yeshiva bochurim, but also to kollel yungeleit and baalei batim who set aside time each day to learn in the bais medrash in New Square and attend shiurim there.
At the event, divrei bracha were shared by the Skverer Rebbe, Rav Dovid Twersky, as well as Rav Aharon Yosef Rosen, the Skverer rosh yeshiva.
The guest speaker was Rav Chaim Shmerler, rov of Bais Medrash Heichal Tzvi of Sanz-Klausenberg in Yerushalayim.
The event also featured a halachic symposium, during which a variety of shailos were answered by Rav Friedman.
Concluding remarks at the event were delivered by Rav Moshe Green, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva D’Monsey, who spoke about the primacy of limud haTorah and yegiah in Torah.
