In response to a serious new health challenge faced by Harav Chaim Yisroel Belsky, shlita, Rosh Yeshiva of Torah Vodaas, the yeshivah will hold a Yom Limud HaTorah U’Tefillah next Sunday, 22 Teves, January 3.

“We are all very concerned,” said the yeshivah in an email message. “B’ezras Hashem, with his devoted mishpacha at his side, the right course of treatment will be found quickly to restore the Rosh Hayeshiva to good health, so that he will continue to lead us ad bias Moshiach tzidkeinu.”

As a zechus for the refuah sheleimah of Harav Belsky, every menahel in Torah Vodaath “is already instituting various new programs of learning and davening with the talmidim,” the yeshivah said.

Sunday’s special event will feature a seder halimud at 9:30 a.m., followed by divrei hisorerus from Torah Vodaath’s roshei yeshivah, Harav Yosef Savitsky and Harav Yisroel Reisman. The tzibur will then say tehillim at 12:15, followed by minchah at 12:45 p.m.
