BNOT MITZVA - THANK YOU FOR CELEBRATING WITH US - THURSDAY MAY 30TH

The Bat Mitzva Day was held at the Beit Midrash for Women in Migdal Oz as well as at yeshiva, as per our best tradition, for the girls and granddaughters of the graduates who celebrated their bat mitzva this year.

The participants had the opportunity to hear a talk from Rav Meir Nahorai and a shiur from Rabbanit Esti Rosenberg, as well as tour the 'Russian Monastery' under the guidance of Rosh Yeshiva Harav Yaakov Medan.

2 weeks earlier, May 16th, a bar mitzva day was held in the yeshiva, for the children and grandchildren of bogrim who celebrated a bar mitzva this year (did you know that the first bar mitzva day took place 15 years ago!?). Unforunately, due to the war, these days had been postponed for six months. But we were blessed with many Bnei/Bnot Mitzva. It was very exciting to see you all and look forward to next year's celebrations...



Gush Poland Trip 2024

(Click to view)

As difficult as it was to leave Eretz Yisrael during a war - this journey was particularly poignant - connecting us to hundreds of years of Jewish History, Jewish learning and study, and our proud Jewish Heritage - connecting us to the people - both unnamed and known whose burial places are both unnamed and known - who carried the ideas, values and scholarship forward.       

Challenging us to examine who we are, our values, our spirit, our faith and what we stand for -  as a group - and as individuals.

We hope that these photos and video convey the profundity and impact of this journey.

Singing in The Tykocin Shul

On the morning of 24 August 1941, the Germans announced that Jews  in Tykocin should report the next day to the town square. 

On 25 August the Jews were rounded up in the square by the Germans with help from Polish police. The Jewish community was marched to the pits in Łopuchowo forest, and murdered. Yehi zikram barukh.

The Yeshiva runs on Talmud Torah, Tefilla, Middot Tovot, and Maasim Tovim. These days - we are all working that much harder to keep it all running. We wanted to highlight some 'Ovdei HaYeshiva' starting with Ovdei HaMitbach. These Guys are serving up meals to Yeshiva talmidim, Rabbeim and staff along with Evacuees from Kiriyat Shemone, Refugees from Kfar Maimon, an IDF unit serving in the area, elderly residents of Alon Shevut whose support system have been drafted, and are providing school meals including meals for children whose parents are currently serving and protecting.    
Oh, there are countless extras; one Shabbat, they prepared a Simcha for a Bar Mitzvah Boy - an evacuee from Kiriyat Shemone sheltering safely with his family in the Yeshiva dorms - whose father is currently serving and protecting. Some of them have been drafted and are serving on Emergency Response Teams. They show up in the kitchen and then leave to do their shifts.   All have family who are currently serving and protecting. Thanking them for showing up to work and working hard - every day - during these difficult times - way beyond the call of duty.
