With the passing of twelve months since the passing of the Rosh Yeshiva, HaRav Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman, there will be a chain of memorial gatherings and eulogies in yeshiva halls, kollelim and shuls, as well as in schools and chadorim. They will be highlighted with the addresses of esteemed rabbonim and roshei yeshiva dwelling upon the pure figure of Maran in order to arouse the myriads of attendants to try to emulate his ways and conducts, and to fortify Torah study, yiras Shomayim and good middos, continuing his heritage transmitted throughout his life as representing the prime leader of chareidi Jewry for over a yovel, bearing the public burden of the generation.
26 Siyumei Shas Spearheaded by Gedolei Yisroel
A massive gathering will be held this upcoming Thursday in the Beis Yeshaya auditorium of Yeshivas Mir in the Beis Yisroel neighborhood of Yerushalayim in memory of the master shepherd, the Rosh Yeshiva. It will be attended by thousands of avreichim and yeshiva students, during which twenty-six completions of Shas in his honor will be celebrated. These were studied in the course of this past year by thousands of avreichim for the pure memory of the Rosh Yeshiva who bore the yeshiva in his very heart, guided and directed its roshei yeshiva and rabbonim in every aspect, and everything that took place in the yeshiva, minor and major, followed his every word.
The massive assembly will begin at 5:30 in the afternoon, and will feature addresses by HaRav Dov Lando, HaRav Boruch Mordechai Ezrachi, the Rosh Yeshiva - HaRav Eliezer Yehuda Finkel, and HaRav Avrohom Yitzchok Barzel, one of the roshei yeshiva of Mir Kiryat Sefer. In addition, HaRav Moshe and HaRav Shraga Shteinman will also be on the dais.
Another assembly will be held in the Zvihl hall near Yeshivas Mir on Thursday at 1:30 between the morning and afternoon learning sessions for the students and avreichim, addressed by HaRav Chizkiyah Mishkovsky and HaRav Yisroel Bunim Shreiber.
