MAZEL TOV! 19-Year-Old Sephardic Yeshiva Bochur Finishes “Entire” Torah [VIDEOS]

18

It is hard to say what constitutes the entire wealth of Torah, but a 19-year-old yeshiva bochur from Yeshivat Nachlas Dovid in Petach Tikvah made a siyum on Tuesday night on the following corpus of Torah literature: Shas both Bavli and Yerushalmi, Mishnah, All of the Tosefta, all of the Rambam’s writings, Arba Turim, the Shulchan Aruch with all of the commentaries, and the Mishna Berurah.

The students, Avraham Yakir Malka, presided over a special siyum in the main hall of the Yeshiva that was organized by his family. Chief Sephardic Rabbi, Hgaon HaRav Yitzchak Yosef, spoke at the event as did the head of the Charedi community in Petach Tikvah HaRav Moshe Nachshoni as well as other Rabbonim and Roshei Yeshiva from the vicinity who attended the event.

Malka is the grandson of HaRav Yeshua Shimon Chaim Ovadia who was the Chief Rabbi of the city of Sefrou in Morocco and the author of the Sefer Shailos U’teshuvos Yismach Leivav.

According to a report in BeChadrei Charedim, Malka has previously finished Shas Bavli 4 times, the first time while he was only in grade school.

  1. Mazel Tov! I stood up from my chair when I saw this! What an accomplishment at 19 years old! I wish him to be able to continue have the wisdom of torah penetrate into his heart and mind and continue being mekadesh shem shamayim and to teach others the beauty of torah. I think you should keep this as your banner and everyday get chizuk from it. Ashreacha!!!

  2. DO U REALLY BELIEVE THAT A 19 YEAR OLD COULD HAVE LEARNED ALL THIS. TO ME EVEN IF HE LEARNED 24/7 ALL HIS YEARS (AND HE DIDN’T, HE ATE ,SLEPT,DAVENED, YOM TOV. ECT ECT.)HE COULDN’T ACCOMPLISH THIS. MAY BE IM WRONG. HARD TO BELIEVE.

    I BELONG TO A LARGE ORGANIZATION,& THERE R MANY TALMEDEI CHACOMEN THERE, & MAYBE 1 OR 2 I COULD SAY ACCOMPLISHED THIS.
    PLEASE GIVE ME CLARITY

  3. Big Moe- Learning Torah is something unique and a person receives Siata D’Shmaya. Look up the biographies of the previous generations, the Ben Is Hai for example new 10 times more than this 19 year old as well as the Hidden Torah. Rav Ovadia Yosef, knew all if Shasta by heart including everyone commentary on the page.

    If this boy has dedicated himself to Ratzon Hashem, its 100% possible.

  4. “Why would the sepharadic yeshiva be named nachalaS dOvid?”
    For the same reason a litvish yeshiva would be named Nachalas Duuuuuuvid”

  5. Mazal Tov to the Mesayem. This is Amazing News!
    May each one of us be Zoche to reach out potential.
    Every person has tremendous potential. Sometimes we may not realize it. Remember that if you put in effort you will achieve much more than if you don’t try!
    יגעתי ומצאתי תאמין!

    May we hear many more great accomplishments from YWN!!!!

  6. It is known that after WW2 there was a child in Yerushalayim that knew all the Torah!
    The Belzer rebbe ZT”L said that the angel that makes you forget all that you learned in the Mother’s womb, skipped him. When the child started saying zohar and ‘future events’, the Belzer rebbe zt”l met with the child in private. When the child emerged from the Rebbe, he had forgotten everything! (I don’t know if mamesh everything, but you get the idea.)

    Maybe this Bochur superstar also has some special rochniyus capabilities, unrelated to physical hard work/learning.
    By the way, regarding beis Yosef on Tur, it says on the sign, he did learn it as well.
