Over 20,000 mishnayos were learned in memory of Rav Binyamin Kamenetzky, zt”l, by more than 150 fifth through eighth grade boys at Yeshiva of South Shore. They were not scattered mishnayos, rather the mishnayos in Pirkei Avos, reinforcing the middos tovos and fine character traits that Rav Binyamin wove into the fabric of YOSS. Each grade saw volunteers excitedly jump at the opportunity to learn and complete the Pirkei Avos cycle by Shavuos.
Armed with a beautiful embroidered Pirkei Avos, given to them by the yeshiva, the boys spent their Shabbos afternoons, evenings and free time to lift the holy neshama of Rav Binyamin while learning how to live as a G-d fearing Jew.
Participants were treated to a gala breakfast held in Yeshiva, celebrating their accomplishments and the life of Rav Binyamin. Rabbi Mordechai Kamenetzky shared stories of Rav Binyamin’s unwavering dedication to Torah and his beautiful middos that made him beloved by all.
