What is the “known” zchus for getting chosson bereishis?October 3, 2010 4:42 am at 4:42 am #1035336d aMember
I don’t know the “known” zechus, but in the Shul I daven in, for the past 4 (maybe even 5-7) years, the bochur who got Chosson Berashis, all got engaged that year B”H!
This past year’s bochur, we thought it didn’t “work”, but on Shmini Atzeres, we found out he got engaged before Yom Tov!October 3, 2010 5:29 am at 5:29 am #1035337simchafanMember
I also heard something about Chosson Bereishis being a zchus for shidduchim although when discussing it with someone over yuntif they didn’t know anything about it and was curious if others had any insight.
Mazal Tov to that bochur!October 3, 2010 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm #1035338d aMember
…someone over yuntif they…
Exactly, what is yuntif? This is a classic broken-telephone word! Gut Yom Tov is said so much and so fast, that now it is yuntif!!!October 14, 2014 11:14 pm at 11:14 pm #1035339147Participant
Zchus for Chosson Bereishis goes to an individual who is capable of leining Parshas Bereishis from a Sefer Toroh. This is just basic.October 14, 2014 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm #1035340screwdriverdelightParticipant
the minhag nowadays is to give aliyos to people even if they can’t lein, since the ba’al kriyah is motzi everyone.October 15, 2014 12:11 am at 12:11 am #1035341Sam2Participant
In most Shuls, having lots of money is a Zchus for Chassan Bereishis. Or, in other Shuls, being the biggest Talmid Chacham is the Zchus for getting someone to buy Chassan B’reishis for you.October 15, 2014 2:47 am at 2:47 am #1035342PurimMashgiachMember
They offered me Chosson Beraishis, but I refused for same reason as gelila!October 15, 2014 2:23 pm at 2:23 pm #1035343147Participant
The Chosson Bereishis @our Shul is 95&3/4 years young. Is there any Shul out there whose Chosson Bereishis is older than the Chosson Bereishis @our Shul? or does our Shul hold the Guinness record for this Simchas Toroh?October 15, 2014 5:22 pm at 5:22 pm #1035344DaMosheParticipant
147, I don’t know, because the kibbud hasn’t been auctioned off yet for my shul.
I do know that the person who usually gets chosson Torah (the same person has been buying it for him for many years) has finished Shas many, many times. I believe he has taught the entire Shas to others (via Daf Yomi and other shiurim) about 6-7 times already. He has an incredible knowledge of Shailos u’teshuvos from the major poskim, and can quote from all of them with ease.
Definitely deserving of chosson Torah!
