    The staff and students in Yerushalayim’s Yeshivas Toras Emes marked the 110th anniversary of the famed yeshiva’s founding by the Rebbe Rashab by travelling to the city of its founding, Chevron.

    Yeshivas Toras Emes was founded by the Rebbe Rashab in 5673 in order to establish a strong center for learning Chassidus in Eretz Yisroel. A fledgling group of seven bochurim were sent from Russia to establish the yeshiva. During the First World War Eretz Yisroel was controlled by the Ottoman Empire, then allied with Germany, who was fighting against Russia at the time. Being that the bochurim were Russian citizens, the Ottoman government had them expelled, thus forcing the yeshiva to close. In 5681, the Yeshiva was reopened in Yerushalayim, where it remains until today.

    To mark the 110th anniversary since its founding, the yeshiva paid a visit to Chevron led by Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Avrohom Lapidus, Rabbi Tuvia Zilberstrom – Rov of Shikun Chabad in Yerushalayim, and the yeshiva’s mashpi’im.

    The bochurim first visited Me’aras Hamachpela, where they heard a handful of the Frierdiker Rebbe and Rebbe MH”M‘s teachings and fondness for the site. They then davened ma’ariv, which was instituted by Yaakov Avinu, who is buried in that very place.

    From there the yeshiva went to the old Chabad shul known as “the Mitteler Rebbe’s Shul”, located in the Avraham Avinu neighborhood.

    The yeshiva’s final stop was the Beit Romano building, which originally housed the yeshiva. The building, purchased by the Rebbe Rashab, was the personal property of the Rebbe Rashab and Frierdiker Rebbe. A number of years after the Six Day War, it was redeemed and returned to the ownership of the Rebbe. Currently, it houses Yeshivas Shavei Chevron, where nearly 400 bochurim study every year.

    The bochurim were given a tour of the building, hearing from staff members about the special connection the Rabbeim and Chabad chassidim historically have to Chevron in general, and to the building in particular. The group then sat down for a farbrengen, which continued until the late hours of the night, before heading back to Yerushalayim.
