Yom Iyun in Honor of MIA's

We were honored by the presence of Mr. Yona Baumel, whose son Zachary has been MIA sincce 1982, and Mrs. Ta'ir Regev, who represented the family of Eldad Regev. Talmidim learned about the critical Mitzvah of Pidyon Shevuyim (Redeeming Captives). Prof. Stuart Ditchek, Founder of the Committee for the Release of Zachary Baumel and Professor at NYU Medical School spoke as well. Rav Hochbaum, Rav Soloveichik, Rav Lipman & Rav Judah each shared Divrei Torah and perspectives on the topic. Talmidim and Rabbeim heightened awareness, sensitivity and commitment to act on behalf our MIA'S.
