Lechu V’Nelcha is continuing its unprecedented expansion around the globe! The location may differ but the system is always the same. Each location sets up a consistent schedule with a shiur given the same day each week.
Sunday, September 17, a new LVN branch was launched in Detroit by our very dedicated coordinators, Sora Raizel Kantrowitz, Shevy Kahn and Ayelet Weingarten, who prepared a most beautiful ‘brunch event’ for the city’s post-seminary girls.
Rebbetzin Dinah Fink flew in to direct the event and impart to the girls her warm words of inspiration and chizuk, highlighting the value of joining the weekly shiur on a consistent basis, and describing it as the best step to take in ensuring a solid hashkafic foundation. The group members were very inspired and are so grateful to be a part of LVN!
During the opening event, the girls heard a personal message from Harav Mattisyahu Salomon, shlita, Mashgiach of Bais Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, who described the vital necessity of the organization. “Lechu V’Nelcha is a wonderful project…upon which the future success of every Bais Yaakov depends…. It’s important. It’s vital. Without which I don’t think any girl can survive. And without which a family of bnei Torah will not be able to develop the way that the Bais Yaakov really wants them to develop.”
To give the girls a taste of what LVN is all about, they viewed a slideshow of LVN shiurim, activities and Shabbatons around the world. To see girls just like themselves, on different continents, speaking different languages, in different locales, but all hearing the same message of aliyah and growth, truly resonated. It drove home the feeling that the LVN ideal is universal; the thirst for Torah knowledge and wisdom is relevant to every post-seminary girl, no matter where on the map she may find herself.
The coordinators prepared a lavish and delicious brunch with a stunning variety of filling dishes and desserts. Each girl was given a personalized notebook, pen and LVN cookie.
Thank you Sora Raizel, Shevy and Ayelet for your tremendous amount of heart and time! It was an extremely special event!
May the Eibershter repay you for all your efforts and kindness with an abundance of brachah and hatzlachah in both your personal life as well as in your avodas hakodesh.
