YOSS Bachurei Chemed Summer Trip
Rav Yisroel Reisman, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah Vodaas visited 35 fortunate YOSS talmidim. Rav Reisman spoke to the boys about the importance of loving Hashem. He also taught some important dikduk lessons regarding the proper way to say Shema. After concluding, he spent a few minutes to give each boy a berachah.
These boys were chosen as Bachurei Chemed — Yedidei Hashem by their rebbeim for exemplifying middos tovos throughout the year.
After visiting Yeshiva Torah Vodaas, the boys had lunch at Palace Cafe and then went on to Aviator Sports where they played a round of mini golf. Yasher koach to all of the Bachurei Chemed.
Tefillin Awareness Project at YOSS
On Sunday, June 16, the Tefillin Awareness Project (Hanachah K’halachah) visited Yeshiva of South Shore. The boys gathered in the beis midrash where they heard a shiur on hilchos tefillin, stressing the importance of the proper placement of tefillin. The sofrim explained to the talmidim that as they grow, they must always make sure that their tefillin still fit correctly, in order for them to wear them properly.
The boys then donned their tefillin for the second time in the day, and the sofrim checked the placement, the fit, and the condition of the tefillin to ensure that everyone is properly fulfilling this most important mitzvah. After this event, the talmidim gained a new appreciation and a renewed commitment to the mitzvah of tefillin.
