!ויחן שם ישראל נגד ההר- כאיש אחד בלב אחד


Program Details

From the center of the world and the city that unifies all Jews, Yeshivat Hakotel is proud to present an unprecedented Pre-Shavuot Worldwide Achdut Program.

We invite you to join Klal Yisrael at the foot of Har Sinai on the day we arrived there years ago: Rosh Chodesh Sivan (May 24).

For the first time in 2000 years, eight Chief Rabbis and leading Roshei Yeshiva, Rabbonim, and Mechanchim from around the globe and of different hashkafot have joined forces to present Torah to the whole world at once- ki’ish echad b’lev echad.

The Israeli Chief Rabbis and Senior Roshei Yeshiva will iy”H open the program at 10:00 AM US East Coast time. Afterwards, the speakers will iy”H speak in parallel online rooms beginning every 30 minutes on the hour/half hour from 10:30 AM - 3:00 PM.

Viewing the Shiurim

The shiurim will iy”H be screened on Youtube and in Zoom Rooms. Because of Zoom’s unreliability and number limitations we encourage you to view the shiur on Youtube. Each shiur will iy”H ‘premiere’ at the time it is scheduled. The links for each shiur is listed under the live shiurim sections, in seperate tables for each category. Underneath each table is the Zoom web and phone information for those shiurim.

For your convenience the PDF version of the flyer consists of clickboxes. Clicking the box will take you to the youtube shiur link (which will iy”H activate closer to the time the shiur begins). Enjoy each shiur and log into the one of your choice before it begins.

IN MEMORY OF THE NOVOMINSKER REBBE (RAV YAAKOV PERLOW) ZT"L


Responsive image

The Novominsker Rebbe lived through many nisyonos facing Klal Yisrael, but he never gave into despair. “The Ribbono shel Olam had rachmanus,” the Rebbe would say. “So hold on tight. Hakadosh Baruch Hu is bigger and His chassadim are bigger — don’t be nispoel, don’t be intimidated.” With the Rebbe’s petirah during these challenging days, may his words serve as an anchor in the storm.


Rabbi Yaakov Perlow zt"l, the late Novominsker Rebbe, was a giant among giants and one of the foremost Gedolim of our time. Rav Perlow was someone who influenced the gamut of Jewish life in America and the world at large.

Simply put: Rav Yaakov Perlow was more than an American chassidic rebbe and rosh yeshiva.

Rav Perlow spent a lifetime impacting the Jewish world all while maintaining an aura of emes and unity. He served a maggid shiur in Beis Medrash leTorah in Skokie, Illinois, rosh yeshivah of Yeshivas Rabbenu Shamshon Refoel Hirsch, in Washington Heights, rosh yeshivah of Kol Yehuda Novominsk, president of Agudath Israel of America and the head of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah. He is someone who touched and educated so many and yet always saw and cared for each individual Jew. As such, the most complex and difficult questions came to him looked at each case with the perspective of a true Gadol B'Yisrael.

His legacy upon the Jewish world is breathtakingly broad and deep, and his influence and impact on the eternity of the Torah is beyond anyone’s capacity to appropriately – let alone comprehensively – appreciate. Klal Yisrael is still reeling from his loss.

It is only fitting that this unprecedented worldwide event of Torah learning, inspiration and unity be dedicated to the late Rabbi Yaakov Perlow zt"l, the late Novominsker Rebbe who worked tirelessly his entire life to educate, inspire and unite us all. יהי זיכרו ברוך. We also are dedicating this program to honor and pay respect to all of those recent niftarim and ask that Hashem bring the ultimate refuah to the world when we all once again be כאיש אחד בלב אחד with the coming of Moshiach speedily in our days!
