Dorian Can’t Stop Torah

Despite a Hurricane Threat, The Kol Torah Reverberates Throughout South Florida

Children gathered together in the various South Florida communities to voluntarily learn on their unanticipated days off.Although just a few short days into the school year, the enthusiasm to learn Torah is as strong as ever. While the threat of Hurricane Dorian and its powerful winds forced the closure of Yeshiva Toras Chaim Toras Emes along with other local yeshivos and schools, it couldn’t diminish the ruach of excitement as children gathered together in the various South Florida communities to voluntarily learn on their unanticipated days off.

In Miami Beach, the Kollel hosted two days of learning for boys and girls. One of YTCTE’s newest rabbeim, Rabbi Shmueli Stein, helped organize the boys’ learning with close to 70 boys participating. Close to 60 girls joined the girls’ program.

In Hollywood, YTCTE assistant principal, Rabbi Gavriel Grossman, along with Aish and the Kollel organized a father and son learning program at the Kollel and a girls program at Aish. Once again attendance exceeded expectations with over 60 children participating on their day off.

We would like to express our hakaras hatov to all the rabbeim who volunteered their time to organize and participate in these programs and to the parents and children who attended.And in North Miami Beach, Pirchei Agudas Yisroel, in conjunction with YTCTE (Jewish Academy near me in the south of Florida), Yeshiva Elementary School, and the local shuls, organized a learning program for boys in grades 1-8. Arranged and supervised by Pirchei Director and YTCTE rebbe, Rabbi Shaya Dovid Kaganoff, over 160 boys joined together in three different shuls to learn with rabbeim from YTCTE and YES. Additionally, the Blejer family graciously hosted a program for girls in grades 4 and 5.

YTCTE’s Dr. Abe Chames High School didn’t let a hurricane threat disrupt its Torah learning and hosted voluntary learning on Monday morning with its rabbeim as well as regular limudei kodesh classes on Tuesday morning. And of course the Bais Medrash Zichron Ezra of YTCTE, which was already in full swing, continued its regular daily three sedarim with its over 30 talmidim even as the windows were boarded up and the Yeshiva and community braced itself for the potential storm.

How truly fitting it is that as the month of Elul begins, South Florida can proudly say that neither rain, nor winds, nor even hurricane threats can diminish the Kol Torah reverberating in our communities.We would like to express our hakaras hatov to all the rabbeim who volunteered their time to organize and participate in these programs and to the parents and children who attended.
