Yeshivas Mir is seeking to capitalize on the combined session of the three Moetzas Gedolei Yisrael on Thursday, 16 Elul in Yerushalayim. The yeshiva has invited Ponevezh Rosh Yeshiva HaGaon HaRav Gershon Edelstein, Shlita, to give a chizuk to talmidim ahead of Rosh Hashanah and Tishrei Yomim Tovim. This is the annual address that has been given in the past by HaGaon HaRav Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman Shlita.

When it became apparent that Rav Edelstein would be traveling to Jerusalem to attend the meeting of the combined Torah Councils, Mir Rosh Yeshiva HaGaon HaRav Eliezer Yehuda Finkel Shlita contacted Rav Edelstein, asking that he give the chizuk talk.
