Annual Melave Malka 5776

March 12, 2016 - Ohel Miriam Hall, Passaic, New Jersey

An overflow crowd of people from Passaic-Clifton and even Monsey and Brooklyn converged in Ohel Miriam Hall on Motzaei Shabbos Parshas Pekudei, to join in the annual Melave Malka for Daf Hashovua.  Participants enjoyed a delicious dairy buffet and the beautiful kumsitz music of the band, while being mischazeik by the camaraderie of so many others who are literally "on the same page" as them.

 

Rabbi Fischel Schachter, Shlit"a, as the special guest speaker, delivered Divrei Chizuk in his inimitably funny yet inspiring way, which we share here.

 

Yasher Koach to all those who attended, and especially to those who put so much effort into making this Melave Malka the beautiful event that it was!
