Program Details

From the center of the world and the city that unifies all Jews, Yeshivat Hakotel is proud to present a third Unprecedented Worldwide Achdus Program.

On Sunday 5 Av (July 26) we invite you to properly prepare for Tisha B’Av- the day when we mourn the destruction of the Bais Hamikdash because of Sinas Chinam- by strengthening your connection with and Ahavas Chinam of Klal Yisrael.

On Rosh Chodesh Sivan, 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 joined forces to present Torah to the whole world at once- ki’ish echad b’lev echad. On Erev Shavuos Roshei Yeshiva and Ramim from almost 50 yeshivas taught Torah together in a Pre Shavuos all night mishmar. Baruch Hashem the Pre Shavuos program had over 125,000 ‘attendees’ and jump- started a worldwide achdus movement. We look forward to continuing this momentum and showing Hashem the Ahavas Chinam that makes us worthy of geula.

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. The program will iy”H also include tours of sites connected to the Bais Hamikdash and interviews with parent and child chinuch pairs (in the spirit of V’heishiv Laiv Avos Al Banim…)

Viewing the Shiurim

The shiurim will iy”H be screened on Youtube, on the program site and on TorahAnytime. For your convenience the pdf versions of the schedule fliers (that will iy”H be posted closer to the event) consist of click boxes. Clicking the box will take you to the youtube shiur link (which will iy”H activate at the time the shiur begins). (You are able to log in before it actually starts.)
