For four unforgettable days, some 250 bnei torah will escape the shackles of cell phones, e-mails, and day-to-day work and enter the avirah of Toras Eretz Yisroel at this year’s Agudas Yisroel of America’s Yerushlayim Yarchei Kallah, to be held at the Ramada Hotel commencing聽Monday, 28 Teves (January 19). The Yarchei Kallah will effectively transform the main ballroom at the hotel into a full-fledged Yeshiva Gedolah. Monday through Thursday from early morning until late at night participants will delve into the sugyos of

“It’s striking, sometimes,” comments a past participant, “when in the middle of explaining something to your chavrusa, you look up and see, to your surprise, that the people around you engaged in loud and聽lebedik聽learning aren’t current yeshiva bachurim but men who for the most part are well beyond their yeshiva years.”

“When you close your eyes,” adds his聽chavrusa,聽“you really feel as though you are sitting in the聽beis medrash聽of a world-renowned yeshiva…”

Indeed Gedolei Yisroel have highly recommended dedicated聽baaleibatim聽to make every effort and join this week-long expression of where their hearts truly lie – in the聽daled amos聽of聽halacha.
