Yesterday, the second day of Rosh Chodesh Elul, was the first day of the new semester in Yeshivos across the world. In Lakewood, new Jersey, however, where well over three thousand students are in attendance, the first day is always a bit different than elsewhere.

Students gather outside of the main building and seek study partners for either the rest of the semester or just until the beginning of the Jewish calendar year.

It is called the “Chevrusah Tumult” and it is often featured on orthodox Jewish websites, not for any particular purpose but so that others can view what has transpired.
