Thank you to  The Mesivta

This past Tuesday the Kollel, and its neighbors on the block, were evacuated by the fire department due to a blown PECO transformer. Not wanting to disrupt any learning, the Kollel rabbis relocated to the Mesivta to learn the remainder of the afternoon.

We thank The Mesivta for their gracious welcome and their 

hachnosas orchim!
