Sunday morning’s Seder Iyun at Kol Torah began with Shacharis at 8:15 followed by breakfast and a learning seder. At 11 AM, Rav Reznick delivered a shiur on the sugya that was learned, Zecher LeMikdash BeSefiras HaOmer. In the evening, the community-wide Benefit Reception was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jan Loeb, devoted Mir friends and parents. A special drasha (watch below) was delivered – via video from Yerushalayim – by Harav Shmuel Wolman, a popular Maggid Shiur in the Mir’s Bais Yeshaya and a native of Baltimore, where his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Meir Wolman, have been hosting Rav Nachman Levovitz for over twenty years.
