Response to War in Israel: Round-the-Clock Learning at Touro’s Lander College for Men

(Courtesy of Touro University) In response to the horrific attacks in Israel and the ongoing war, Lander College for Men Beis Medrash L’Talmud launched a 24-hour learning initiative. The beis medrash is open and filled with kol Torah 24/7 as students learn Torah as a zechus for yeshuos in Israel.

“The learning in our beis medrash literally never stops,” said the rosh yeshiva, HaRav Yonason Sacks. “Our talmidim committed to engaging in round-the-clock learning, consistent with the teaching of Rav Yosef in the Gemara Sotah, that Torah study protects and saves.”

Immediately after the initiative was launched by Rabbi Sacks, students signed up for their time slots to ensure that the learning would be constant and ongoing.

“We all think that the all-night learning program is an incredible way to make sure that the special merit and protection of Torah learning and davening doesn’t stop for even a moment,” said Sam Davis, a political science major from West Hempstead who is Student Government president at Lander. “Even if that means waking up at 3 a.m., people don’t mind. And not only do we wake up early, we are doing it with energy and passion. This program also gives us a special understanding of the importance of our learning and what we can do for Klal Yisroel no matter where we are in the world.”
