More than 2,000 people attended the Torah Yerushalayim event on Sunday, hosted by the OU Israel in the Ramada Jerusalem Hotel. The day was dedicated to learning in spiritual preparation for Yom Kippur. The shiurim were conducted in English servicing the Anglo-Saxon community in Israel. Throughout the day, attendees enjoyed learning from a choice of 40 Shiurim corresponding to the 40-year anniversary of the OU’s activity in Israel.
The day of learning was modeled after the OU’s Torah events held in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago during the 10 days of repentance.
The marathon day concluded with a midnight musical Selichot with singer Rabbi Shlomo Katz. Many great Rabbis joined the event such as Rabbi Shlomo Amar (Chief Sephardic Rabbi), Rabbi Dovid Grossman (Rabbi of Migdal HaEmek), Rabbi Asher Weiss (Renowed Posek), Rav Yosef Tzvi Rimon (Rabbi of the Machon Lev College), Rabbi Meir Goldwicht (Rosh HaYeshiva, Yeshiva University), Rabbanit Racheli Fraenkel, Rabbi Kenneth Brander (Head of Ohr Torah Stone Institutions), among many other notable scholars and speakers.
