    Postville “Shabbos Father And Sons”

    This past Shabbos, 40 fathers from across North America came to Postville Yeshiva for their first “Shabbos father and sons” The fathers were greeted with a custom-designed welcome bag with information regarding the Shabbos schedule and program • Full Story, Photos

    The Shabbos weekend began with very lively “Adar dancing” on Thursday night followed by a Farbrengen with Rabbi Sholom Deitsh (VA) Rabbi Yisroel Ort (CO) and Rabbi Chai Amar (FL).

    Friday morning began with a special Shiur Chassidus by the maggid shiur of Shiur alef Rabbi Mendy Karp on a Mamar of the Tzemach Tzedek discussing very relevant questions in avodah hashem followed by Davening, then while some parents took their sons to Mivtzoyim the rest of the bochurim heard a Shiur form Rabbi Mendy Cohen (CA) on Amira l’acu”m which erupted in to lively conversation with parents and students asking many questions and discussing many different scenarios, after a short break the parents were able to participate in the weekly Q. & A. by the Mashpia of the Yeshiva, Rabb Gavriel Levin.

    As Shabbos came in there was a Seder of father and son learning chassidus followed by a Seder Niguim led by Hatomim Hashliach Shimon Lishner, and after Kabolos Shabbos everyone went to their hosts for the Shabbos meal. The yeshiva is deeply grateful for the generous warmth and hospitality of the local community of Postville, who hosted the many fathers who came. (this Shabbos and every Shabbos as well, the Postville community is famous for having Bochurim over for the meals and more).

    On Shabbos morning Rabbi Eli Benshimon, the menahel and life force of the Yeshiva, gave a shiur Chassidus on the topic of Levush and Bayis, and after Krias Hatorah (where one of the fathers – that came in from NY – named his baby daughter!) Rabbi Benshimon, in his unique and captivating style, said a derasha on the parsha connecting the חטא העגל to פרה אדומה and drawing out a beautiful lesson in the importance of listening to רבותינו ז”ל.

    The seduas Shabbos (prepared with love and dedication by the Yeshiva’s cook R’ Adir Goldenberg) quickly turned in to a warm farbrengen with Rabbi Efrayim Mintz (NY) Rabbi Yehoshua November (NJ) and many more fathers and hanholo and local Anash searing stories and inspiration until Minche.

    Minche was followed by Seder Nigunim and Chazoras Dac”h by the Mashpia of the Yeshiva Gedola Rabbi Avrohom katz, afterwards Rabbi Benshimon said one of his legendary stories inspiring the Bochurim to strengthen their commitment to being a Chay”ol.
    After Mariv and Havdolo there was a fascinating shiur by rabbi levin on the chilazon that was used for the techeles, and from there the Bochurim went to a special Melave Malka in a local hall where they heard words of encouragement from rabbi Koppel Zirkind, the Mashgiach of the Yeshiva and Rabbi Chay Amar (FL) who challenged the Bochurim and promised them a unique prize like no other, Hatomim Shlomo Amar made a Siyum on an entire Seder of Mishnayos, thereafter there was a Siyum Sefer Torah! That was procured for the local Shul by Hatomim Moshe Leshes.

    The next morning Rabbi Katz gave over a Shiur on Davening according to Chassidus and after Shachris – followed by another Siyum on a complete Seder of Mishnayos by Hatomim Mendel Levin – and breakfast, many fathers and sons went to the famous “Agristar” to have a tour of the oldest and most Mehudardik “Shlachthoiz” in America.

    The Shabbaton ended with parents speaking to Hanholo about the Talmidim and everyone was left with an inspiration to give the Rebbe Nachas and bring Moshiach now!
