TIKUN LEIL SHAVUOT IN MEMORY OF MOREINU
HARAV AHARON LICHTENSTEIN ZT"L
We are all mourning the passing of Moreinu veRabbeinu Harav Aharon Lichtenstein zt"l, who taught us the ways of Torah and the ways of life. Rav Lichtenstein was taken from us during the days of Sefirat HaOmer, the period during which we prepare ourselves for receiving the Torah. More than ever before, this year we feel the urgent need to fortify ourselves with his teachings and his legacy, in a united fashion.
We appeal to you to take part in a global Tikkun Leil Shavuot that we have initiated in memory of Moreinu Harav Lichtenstein zt”l. In the framework of this initiative, each participant will dedicate divrei Torah, whether a talk, a class, or a private Torah study session, in memory of Rav Lichtenstein, and thereby spread the teachings of Torah and Yir’at Shamayim to which Rav Lichtenstein dedicated himself his entire life.

What's Happening in Israel
Visits to Har Etzion by the most elite instructional institution in the IDF - The IDF Command and Staff College ("Pum") - seem to have become a tradition. Brigadier General Commander Noam Tivon explains why: "I consider Rav Medan a leader, an ideological leader, but also a leader who seeks ways to build bridges, and therefore it is so important to hear him."
