They came from Randallstown and Baltimore, MD; Edison and Highland Park, NJ; Monsey and Spring Valley, NY. They came from Lakewood, Teaneck, Elizabeth, Passaic and Jersey City, NJ. They came from Allentown, PA, Plainview and New Rochelle, NY and throughout the Metropolitan New York area. Speakers came from Eretz Yisrael via Boston and Stamford, CT. A crowd of over 300 gathered this past Sunday at Lander College for Men in Kew Gardens Hills, NY, for a fascinating eight-hour Harry H. Beren program on the Kedushat Ha’Aretz and Its Mitzvot, that is the mitzvot especially related to the land of Israel. The audience sat mesmerized by one powerful presentation and dynamic shiur after the other.
One attendee described his experience by text message as follows:
“Just wanted to let you know – I usually wake up somewhat later but I woke up at 4:35 today after going to sleep at 1:30 last night. Totally worth every single second! Keep up the amazing work and Tizku Limitzvot! I can’t get enough of these programs and that DVD distributed by you (a compilation of 91 hours of Harry H. Beren of Lakewood ASK OU Programs), made my week. Or month. Anyway hope to see you at ASK OU9 (in late August).”
