Pirchei Agudas Yisroel of Montreal held its 37th Annual Siyum Mishnayos on Februrary 14th -16th, Shabbos Parshas Tezaveh, at the Yeshiva Gedolah Mercaz Hatorah. Approximately 500 boys from Toronto, Passaic, Providence, Montreal and other cities spent the weekend inspired by rabbonim and mechanchim of the Montreal community.

This year’s siyum was dedicated to the memory of Harav Avrohom Chaim Levin, zt”l, late Rosh Hayeshiva, Yeshivas Telshe-Chicago and Member of Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah of Agudas Yisroel of America. The special guest for Shabbos was Harav Moshe Schmeltzer, shlita, Menahel, Yeshivas Telshe-Chicago, who inspired the boys with memories of Rabbi Levin. At the Melave Malka, where the Pirchim were mesayem Shisha Sidrei Mishnah, they were treated to an audio-visual presentation on Rav Levin’s life.
