The story of the Yeshiva is fascinating: the yeshiva was established according to the instructions of the Rebbe Melech HaMoshiach, already in the first year after the Nesius. Hundreds of letters, Yechidussen and directives were received by its Hanhola throughout the years. In a rare letter sent in those days to the yeshiva’s founder, the Mashpia Reb Chaim Shaul Brook, the Rebbe Melech HaMoshiach wrote that “The holier something is, the more it will get destroyed”. This means that the physical and mental difficulties are an expression of the fact that there is a precious diamond here that requires hard work.
Many decades passed until the Mashpia Reb Zalman Notik A”H, who was known for his daringness and originality, took it upon himself to run the yeshiva again. He instilled his diverse personality and decided that the yeshiva would combine two things that seem to be the opposite: On the one hand, to keep to a very high level of learning, with the bachurim printing Kovtzei He’oros, and many resources invested in in-depth learning; and at the same time the Bochurim expressing their youthful powers in Mivtzoyim.
A few months before he passed away while battling Cancer, Rabbi Notik had led a move together with the Menahel Gashmi to find a new building for the Yeshiva. The search was not simple to find a place that would meet all the requirements. To their great surprise, they finally found a suitable place that was in the exact location that the Rebbe mentioned to the Yeshiva’s Hanhalah decades ago!
In the midst of the fulfillment of the big dream, everything seemed to have stopped. The beloved Mashpia, the Menahel Ruchni of the Yeshiva in Rishon Letzion, Rabbi Zalman Notik, was laid to rest, and the question hovered over what would happen to his great life investment that had just begun to form.
Already during the Shiva, the Hanhalah decided to move forward with full vigor. Rabbi Notik, who pushed the Yeshiva to its success from the day of its establishment, would surely have wanted the building to be erected and used for its divine purpose, as they received the blessing of the Rebbe Melech HaMoshiach.
The building that was purchased was a space with great potential, However, on the inside it was completely destroyed. There was a vacant space that needed to be rebuilt. Notwithstanding the seemingly endless challenges, the Yeshiva has witnessed true miracles in the past year since Rabbi Notik passed away.
Not only did the Yeshiva not retreat, or loose support, but over the past year the building has been completely renovated, with new classrooms and dormitory rooms for the bachurim. Towards the current Zman, the Bochurim of the Yeshiva Ketana moved excitedly to their new and magnificent building!
In the coming months, dozens of Bochurim from the Yeshiva Gedola will also enter the building – completing the next part of the project.
The yeshiva is now preparing for the next stage, redoing the dining room and building a Mikvah for daily use, thereby completing an important phase in the transition from the old Yeshiva building, which will soon be demolished, including the Mikvah within it.
All who want to take part in this zechus have the opportunity to help the Yeshiva with their final stages of building. Become partners in the realization of Rabbi Notik’s great vision. Take part in the expansion and establishment of Yeshivas Tomchei Temimim and you will receive the blessings of our Rebeim.
Build the Mikvah and add a light of purity in the world, and we will bring about the Geulo Hoamitis Vehashleima!
