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.
During August, September and October 2018, 9 new LVN branches have opened/re-opened joining the 30+ branches across the world. It is so heart-warming to see how girls from all over the world, in any size community, want to constantly stay connected and invest in their avodas Hashem. You are an inspiration to us all!

The launching events were beautiful! It is special to see how much heart and work went into them, making them a unique experience for their individual communities.
The attendees 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.”
Rebbetzin Dinah Fink, founder and director of LVN, also sent her best wishes and brachos to the new branches, 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.
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.
Several of the branches gave out personalised Lechu V’Nelcha notebooks, pens and cookies with some accompanying light refreshments.
The desire to maintain what was learned and absorbed in seminary is universal, and Lechu V’Nelcha enables the girls to do just that. So, come join post-seminary girls like yourself at a local branch near you, in an atmosphere that nurtures growth, warmth and real friendship. Because that, in a nutshell, is what LVN is all about!
May the Eibershter repay all our wonderful Lechu V’Nelcha coordinators for all their efforts and kindness with an abundance of brachah and hatzlachah.
