As part of the new Global Hakhel Seder Sichos initiative launched by Vaad Hatmimim at the 19th Annual Kinus Hatmimim, Yeshivos across the globe united through learning the Rebbe’s Torah.

Just a few short weeks ago, over a thousand bochurim joined together in Crown Heights for the 19th Annual Kinus Hatmimim. The program entailed a grand Hakhel Seder Sichos, where all the Bochurim learned the same Sicha of the Rebbe. After that, the Bochurim were addressed by prominent Mashpi’im regarding the importance of Hakhel and learning the Rebbe’s Torah.

In continuation to this great Hakhel, the Vaad Hatmimim in conjunction with the Talmidim Hashluchim in each yeshivah arranged a unique Seder Sichos initiative. The worldwide community of Bochurim, each in their respective locations, united through learning the Rebbe's Torah, all learning the same Sicha. 

At the first Seder Sichos, held in proximity to Chof Beis Shevat, over 25 Yeshivas learned the same Sicha together, each in their corner of the world. 

In each yeshivah, prizes were raffled off for all the bochurim that participated.

These Hakhel Seder Sichos will be held bi-weekly.

Tomchei Bochurim to Include Americans Learning in 770

Over the past three years, Tomchei Bochurim, a project of Vaad Talmidei Hatmimim Haolami, has provided Bochurim who come to New York to spend a year learning in the Rebbe’s presence with the most basic of physical needs. From a warm coat during the winter months, to a new hat before Yomtov, and everything in between, Keren Tomchei Bochurim puts the well-being of the Bochurim first. 

The financial worry a Bochur can carry with him is often overwhelming. Imagine the peace of mind afforded to a needy Bochur when something as mundane and necessary as shampoo is taken care of.

Vaad Hatmimim is now pleased to announce that for the first time ever, new hats for Pesach at subsidized pricing will also be available for the American Bochurim learning in 770. This is just one step toward the ultimate goal of providing for Bochurim around the world.

“A Bochur needs to know he has someone to turn to,” said Rabbi Tzvi Altein, director of the Vaad Hatmimim. “The goal we had in mind when creating Tomchei Bochurim, was that every Bochur should know that there are people looking after him and caring for his needs.

The 19th Annual Kinus Hatmimim Haolami

Thousands of Bochurim joined together in Oholei Torah for the 19th annual Kinus Hatmimim hosted by the Vaad Hatmimim Haolami

Every year, as thousands of Bochurim from over 50 Yeshivos flock to New York for Yud Shevat, the Vaad Hatmimim Haolami hosts a special Kinus Hatmimim, uniting all the Bochurim to hear uplifting words to last them through the next few months of Yeshivah. 

This year, the 19th annual Kinus Hatmimim took a new spin, inviting the Bochurim to a grand Seder Sichos in honor of Hakhel. A true spirit of unity was felt in the room, as groups of Bochurim sat down with their friends and classmates, all learning the same Sicha. 

After a 45-minute learning period, the Bochurim were addressed by a Mashpia and showed a special video presentation connected to Yud Shevat. The Bochurim of Mesivta were addressed by Rabbi Levi Tiechtel of Monsey Mesivta in the Oholei Torah Ballroom and the Bochurim of Zal were addressed by Rabbi Shloime Kaplan of Oholei Torah in the Oholei Torah Zal. 

Before the Bochurim made their way to one of the many Farbrengens set up to follow the event, a special Hakhel initiative was announced. Starting in two weeks on Chof Beis Shevat, a global Seder Sichos will take place, joined by over 50 Yeshivos, with the singular purpose of uniting Bochurim around the world in learning the same Sicha.

With tremendous feedback from Bochurim and Hanholla members alike, the Kinus Hatmimim was a huge success, empowering the Bochurim as they return to Yeshivah to continue their learning.
