Shluchim from the states of Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan gathered in Detroit this past Shabbos and Sunday for the annual Midwest Regional Kinus.
The program started on Friday afternoon with a tour of the building site of the future mesivta and yeshiva building, led by Rabbi Berel Shemtov. Rabbi Shemtov, head shliach to Michigan and host of the Kinus, shared with visitors the magnificent Kidush Hashem that occurred the previous Sunday when the whole community came together for the groundbreaking. The new complex will be built on 4 acres of land on Ten Mile Road, near the other yeshivos in town.
Shluchim joined the mesivta for their seder limud and seder nigunim before Kabbolas Shabbos and Maariv, which was led by Shliach Rabbi Mendel Moscowitz from Chicago.
The Shabbos meal naturally turned into a farbrengen that went on until the early hours of the morning.
