The atzeres was organized by the family and friends of noted askan Chaim Yosef ben Leah, who has helped thousands of Yidden and is in need of a refuah shleimah.
The assembled were addressed by a special guest from Eretz Yisroel, the mekubal Harav Avner Afgin of Rosh Haayin. The Tosher Dayan Harav Binyomin Landau and the Dzikov-Viznitzer Rebbe of Boro Park spoke as well.
The ezras nashim was also open for the women, and the event was broadcast live over the telephone.
