Update below: Tonight, the massive pidyon shvuyim effort on behalf of Reb Sholom Mordechai ben Rivka Rubashkin will continue with a large asifa for women and girls at Toras Aron Hall in Lakewood, NJ. This event follows Monday night’s historic event at Lakewood’s Lake Terrace Hall which drew over 7,000 men.
Organizers of these events told Matzav.com that initially, the first event was going to be held for both men and women, but because of the immense size of the anticipated crowd and the fact that no facility was deemed large enough to accommodate both men and women, Monday night’s gathering was designated for men only.
Tomorrow night’s women’s chizuk rally will feature remarks from Mrs. Leah Rubashkin, wife of Reb Sholom Mordechai, as well as Rav Ephraim Eliyahu Shapiro, rov of Cong. Shaaray Tefilla of North Miami Beach.
The program will begin at 8 p.m.
There will be plenty of parking for all attendees, with police officers directing traffic to ensure smooth traffic flow.
Toras Aron Hall is located at 500 Summer Avenue, off of Prospect Street, in Lakewood. All women and girls are urged to attend.
Update: It has been finalized that Mrs. Roza Hindy Weiss, a daughter of Reb Sholom Mordechai, will address the gathering as well.
Update: Tonight’s MC will be Mrs. Baila Stein.
