VINTAGE LOOK-BACK: Sign Announcing Simchas Bais Hashoeivah with the Chazon Ish zt”l



  1. The poster clearly states Motzai Shabbos 17th of Tishrei, 5714.
    Just one problem with that….That year, 5714, Motzai Shabbos was 18th of Tishrei.

    Did they make a mistake back then, or is this a poorly done fake?

    • If shabbos was the 17th it would mean the minhog in EY of referring the date of the night after the day of is an old minhog and not a recent development.

  2. One more thing….every such poster or document put out by the “Olam HaTorah” states not only the date, but which day of Chol HaMoed it is. In this case, if the above poster was authentic, would’ve also stated “3rd day of Chol HaMoed”

  3. Chaim….I’m not questioning whether or nor the event took place. I’m certain that it did.
    I’m just questioning the authenticity of the above pictured poster. (Because the date is 100% not accurate)

    A Guten Moed.
