    60 Alumni Demonstrate “America is Nisht Anderesh”

    “America is nisht anderesh—America is no different”. Today, on the 9th of Adar, 77 years since that defiant proclamation, Oholei Torah Educational Institute announces a list of 60 alumni to be recognized at an upcoming dinner for their tireless efforts in ensuring the materialization of this vision • Full Story

    Upon escaping a vibrant European Jewry torn apart by Nazi atrocities to arrive in a deteriorating Jewish community threatened by American modernity, the Frierdiker Rebbe famously pronounced “America is nisht anderesh—America is no different”. Today, on the 9th of Adar, 77 years since that defiant proclamation, Oholei Torah Educational Institute announces a list of 60 alumni to be recognized at an upcoming dinner for their tireless efforts in ensuring the materialization of this vision.

    Oholei Torah’s Gala Dinner, culminating the school’s 60-year anniversary celebrations, will be held on Sunday, 3rd of Sivan–28th of May, in the Ballrooms of Oholei Torah Center. The 60 alumni were nominated through a voting campaign beginning at the Kinus HaShluchim, and, despite the diverse fields they currently find themselves in—some Shlichus, some Rabbonus, some Chinuch and others business— they are united by the burning passion to be lamplighters and inspire others that was instilled within each one of them.

    “The impact of Oholei Torah reaches every single home in the Chabad community worldwide,” said Rabbi Joseph Rosenfeld, Oholei Torah’s longstanding Executive Director. “The 60 years of Oholei Torah celebrates our success in producing results that are consistent and absolutely vital to the Rebbe’s vision of Uforatzta—spreading yiddishkeit throughout the world.”

    Rabbi Nosson Blumes, Oholei Torah’s Director of Development, is the coordinator of this event. “It’s both amazing and heartwarming to see the accomplishments of these alumni,” he said. “The ties they have with Oholei Torah are still strong, and continue to inspire their activities.”

    The Board of Directors of Oholei Torah hope to see many alumni, parents, friends, and supporters participate and show their support for this unprecedented Gala Event. For more information please contact [email protected]
