Rav Dovid Miller’s shiur was a big hit

Posted on Updated on

Our inaugural shiur with Rav Dovid Miller, rosh kollel in Gruss Kollel, was a huge success. Over 80 people from across the various community shul participated. Many came to study the מראי מקומות in the hour before the shiur. Then Rav Miller presented a very enlightening shiur on the importance of ברכת התורה and כתר תורה dedicated to the memory of Rav Aharon Lichtenstein zt’l. Afterwards we enjoyed discussing the shiur over cholent and kugel.

Here’s the link to the shiur

We look forward to announcing the November shiur details very soon.
