CHICAGO THURSDAY NIGHT MISHMAR
From September to June, there is a Thursday night mishmar in Chicago for bochurim, run by Rabbi Yosef Cohen.
Between 100-150 boys from all the local yeshivos and high schools join together from 10PM until midnight to learn. During off shabbosim, bochurim join from yeshivos all over. They all turn in their cell phones for uninterrupted chavrusah shaffs, and the kol Torah is unparalleled.
One of the highlights is the divrei chizuk given at the end of the limud by various local Rabbanim and visiting Rabbanim. Some of the esteemed guests have been, Rabbi Yaakov Bender, Rabbi Reuven Feinstein, Rabbi Shlomo Kanievsky, Rabbi Yitzchok Koledetsky, and more.
After their ruchnius filled, the bochurim enjoy each other’s company with drummettes and “Reb C’s” famous cholent. The geshmak keeps them going until the next Thursday night mishmar!
Enjoy a small glimpse into this amazing מעמד, with the song “טעמו וראו”, written specifically for this mishmar.
