This past Monday, September 7th, Agudath Israel’s Torah Projects Commission partnered with Hakhel and Torah Anytime to host a Pre-Rosh Hashana Labor Day learning event.

The event focused on welcoming the new year by invigorating the participants with shiurim and divrei chizuk. Hundreds participated in-person and via livestream, strengthening themselves with presentations by renowned talmidei chachamim: Rabbi Yisroel Reisman, Rav, Agudath Israel of Madison, Rabbi Elya Brudny, Rosh Yeshiva, Mir Brooklyn and chaver Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah, Rabbi Reuven Feinstein, Rosh Yeshiva, Yeshiva of Staten Island, and Rabbi Moshe Tuvia Lieff, Rav, Agudas Yisroel Beis Binyamin.

Rabbi Eliyahu Simcha Bamberger, National Director of the Daf Yomi Commission, described the event as a “meaningful introduction to the new year” saying, “The event was filled to maximum capacity as many came together to begin the new year with enthusiasm and hislahavus.”

The program ended with a fascinating shiur on the intricate laws of eruvin by Rabbi Shlomo Francis, author of The Laws of an Eruv. A recording of this shiur can be accessed here.

Rabbi Bamberger concluded by saying, “We are grateful to the staff at Hakhel and Torah Anytime for partnering with us to enable this event to be available for all who wished to participate. Due to their involvement we had hundreds of viewers across the world, each walking away with a renewed outlook on the year to come.”
