The Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (RIETS) will offer its annual Yarchei Kallah [Gathering for Torah Study] program this Shavuos, June 7-10, 2019, at the Hilton Stamford in Connecticut. The three-day weekend features an exciting lineup of speakers, round-the-clock Torah learning, children and teen programs and upgraded catering.

The roster of diverse, moving and uplifting speakers and presentations attracts hundreds of people from throughout the United States and Canada.

This year’s lineup features RIETS roshei yeshiva Rabbi Daniel Feldman, Rabbi Michael Rosensweig, Rabbi Hershel Schachter and Rabbi Michael Taubes. Dr. Ari Berman, President of Yeshiva University, and Rabbi Menachem Penner, the Max and Marion Grill Dean of RIETS, will attend.

The program also boasts educators from Stern College for Women, including Smadar Rosensweig (clinical assistant professor of Bible) and Shoshana Schechter (instructor in Bible) as well as popular lecturers Michal Horowitz (422 shiurim and articles on YUTorah),  Rabbi Dr. Edward Reichman (professor of emergency medicine and professor in the division of education and bioethics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine) and Dr. Yitzchak Schechter (clinical psychologist and director of the Center for Applied Psychology at Bikur Cholim in Monsey, New York), who will speak over the course of the program.

“The Yarchei Kallah program is a unique opportunity to learn with our roshei yeshiva and faculty while celebrating Shabbos and Shavuos together as a community,” said Rabbi Penner. “With more than 60 shiurim led by inspiring faculty and a wide variety of inspirational programs, the RIETS Shavuos event is one of the most uplifting yom tov [festival] experiences anywhere in the world.”
