Thousands are expected to turn out for Thursday’s Kenos Bogrei Yeshivas Chevron Knesses Yisrael, a gathering of former talmidim of the yeshiva. The event will be held in Binyanei Ha’uma, the Jerusalem Convention Center, in the presence of Maranan Gedolei HaDor Shlita.
Organizers explain a major effort was made to track down former talmidim, especially those not appearing in the school’s database, including those living abroad.
The event organizers explain is to permit former talmidim (alumni) to express their gratitude to the yeshiva, adding HaGaon Rav M. Lefkowitz Shlita has agreed to share some of his memories from his days in beis medresh with the tzibur attending the reunion.
Doors to the exhibit prepared for the event will open at 18:00 and the auditorium will open for the main event at 20:00, beginning the program with maariv. The first address will be from one of the prominent alumni, Rechovot Chief Rabbi, HaRav Simcha HaCohen Kook Shlita. Maran Rav Lefkowitz and Maran Rav Yehuda Leib Shteinman Shlita will deliver the main addresses.
Organizers stress that as a result of the large list of invited guests anyone without an invitation will not be permitted to enter, including children. A large tent is also being set up outside to accommodate those who are unsuccessful in entering the main hall.
