Weeklong Learning Program in Berkely, CA - Accomodations Provided

I received an e-mail from Jody Feld, through Yosef Hakohen, about this very interesting learning opportunity for anyone who is willing to travel to Berkely, CA for the week to learn during the week of August 11-17th with Beit Midrash Ohr HaChaim. Click on the brochure above for a larger version of their flyer. If you would like full bios, registration information and a schedule for the week, CLICK HERE for the full pdf brochure.

Here's some of the information that was e-mailed to me:

We are an independent Torah learning center located in Berkeley, California. In this, our 10th anniversary year, we are running a special Yeshiva Week of Learning program. We have brought in 3 very special teachers: The Samborer Rebbe, Rabbi Hershel Yolles, shlita,
Rabbi Chaim Zev Citron (from LA), and Rabbi Jay Yaakov Schwartz (from NY).

Rabbi Yolles, The Samborer Rebbe, is a direct descendent of the Baal Shem Tov, and the current Samborer Rebbe. Rabbi Citron is a Lubovitcher, and Rabbi Schwartz is a yeshivish lamdan who is now deep into Breslev since about 5 years ago. All 3 are outstanding teachers. You can read more on their blurbs on the brochure.

This program is unique in many way. First, programs like this, with teachers like this do not happen in a place like Berkeley, California. It will be worthwhile for people to travel for such a program, kind of like a spiritual vacation, and we have arranged special rates at a nearby motel for those who do. The program is a complete immersion, from morning till night, and includes a Shabbaton and melave malka. Do take a look at the brochure.
