Photo Gallery: Gala Dinner for Bobover Yeshiva Bnei Zion
By: BZ Green
This past motzei Shabbos, the Bobover Yeshiva held its annual dinner at the Palace hall in Boro Park. The yeshiva has been a mainstay in the Boro Park community ever since it was established here by Rebbe Shloime of Bobov, zt"l, in the 1970's, and has shaped thousands of talmidim over the decades. Today, it boasts an enrollment of over 1800 talmidim, ka"h.
The event coincided with a siyum on Masechta Rosh Hashana by Chaburas Kinyan Torah d'Bobov, the program for balebatim to master Torah learning.
A number of elected officials and community leaders attended the event, including senior advisors to the mayor Joel Eisdorfer and Deputy Chief of Staff Menashe Shapiro. Rabbi Yoel Rosenfeld, an askan from the Bobover kehillah, thanked Mayor Adams for his support and his advisors for attending. Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein, Councilman Kalman Yeger, District Leader Pinny Ringel and Community Board 12 District Manager Barry Spitzer were also in attendance.
The highlight of the evening was the Bobover Rebbe shlit"a's address to the hundreds of parents on the important topic of chinuch.
