Baltimore, MD - July 30, 2021 - On June 22nd, the bochurim of Mesivta Kesser Torah celebrated their year of growth with a Grand Siyum on masechtos Rosh ha’Shanah, Sukkah, and Brachos. Bochurim celebrated with the hanhala, rebbeim, and their parents in the space which is currently being rebuilt to house the yeshiva’s Bais Medrash.
Two talmidim were selected from each shiur to say over the end of their respective masechta and recite the hadran. Additionally, Rav Zvi Teichman, Rov of Ohel Moshe and member of the yeshiva’s Vaad ha’Rabbonim, spoke to the bochurim and discussed the significance of the word “masechta” and the importance of limud ha’Torah. The Menahel, Rav Avrohom Feldheim, and the Rosh Mesivta, Rav Tzvi Mordechai Feldheim, shlit”a, also spoke to the audience about how the bochurim radiate like the kochavim, each with their individual light yet coming together to create a radiant sky. The talmidei ha'yeshiva recognize that they are cherished by their rebbeim for their unique contributions while acknowledging that they are part of a community of bochurim that are mashpia upon one another and contribute to Kesser Torah as a whole.
After dancing and a delectable seudah, each talmid was called up by his rebbe to hear personalized words regarding his individual growth, receive a bracha, and accept a sefer. Kesser Torah is known for the personal touch it places upon each bochur. The words offered by each rebbe displayed his love and connection to each bochur and displayed the yeshiva’s commitment to the growth of every talmid, a key ingredient in crowning each talmid with a Kesser Torah.
The hanhala and rebbeim of Kesser Torah look forward to welcoming over 100 bochurim to its Mesivta and Bais Medrash this Rosh Chodesh Elul!
