Yeshiva Bais Hillel, located in Brooklyn, between Flatbush and Boro Park, has become a go-to destination for quality bochurim – both pre- and post-Eretz Yisroel – seeking to shteig under world-class talmidei chachomim and maggidei shiur.
Now, Yeshiva Bais Hillel has announced a new maggid shiur, Rav Shmuel Tzvi Berniker, who joins the yeshiva, which is located in the bais medrash of the Yeshiva Torah Temimah building at 555 Ocean Parkway. The location features beautiful amenities, which continue to enhance the learning of the talmidim of Bais Hillel.
Rav Berniker is a talmid of Yeshiva Gedolah of Passaic, under Rav Meir Stern, and Yeshivas Brisk in Yerushalayim, under Rav Avrohom Yehoshua Soloveitchik. For the last years, Rav Berniker has learned at Yeshiva Bais Hatalmid in Bensonhurst, becoming known as one of the prestigious young talmidei chachomim of the yeshiva.
“We are excited to welcome this outstanding marbitz Torah to our ranks,” said Rav Aryeh Leib Zell, rosh yeshiva, who has made it his focus to bring together a cohesive chaburah of choshuve kollel yungeleit with post-bais medrash bochurim. “Rav Berniker combines his tremendous amkus and ahavas haTorah with an ability to connect with bochurim and young bnei Torah that is a welcome addition to the yeshiva.”
The unique, warm and welcoming atmosphere of Bais Hillel is an attraction to young bnei Torah, especially at this time, when, due to the current Covid-related circumstances, many bochurim who had planned to go to Eretz Yisroel to learn have instead been remaining on American shores. Bais Hillel has quickly become an ideal makom Torah for these bnei Torah.
The limud of the yeshiva this coming spring/summer zeman will be Perek Tamid Nishchat in Maseches Pesachim, and Rav Berniker’s shiurim will plumb the depths of this segment of Shas, providing the bochurim with a feeling of satisfaction and sippuk. During second seder, the yeshiva will be learning Maseches Temurah.
Other maggidei shiur at the yeshiva include Rav Yishai Grant and Rav Akiva Brun, and shmuessen are delivered by Rav Zell.
The hanhalah of the yeshiva stops at nothing to ensure the peace of mind and comfort of the bochurim, providing three nourishing meals a day and an environment in which they can shteig.
“The energy and enthusiasm that permeate Yeshiva Bais Hillel uplift one and all,” says Rav Zell. “There’s a feeling of simcha, of aliyah in Torah, and everyone benefits from that immensely.”
There are a limited number of slots available for bochurim for the coming zeman. For information, call 917.743.4755.
