“These 14 new Rabbis are now sent to spread the word of the Torah to the world,” said Rabbi Ruvi New, Dean of Machon Menachem and Spiritual Director at the Chabad of East Boca. “But they are not just 14 individual Rabbis. They are 14 points of light that will impact the world in the coming days, weeks, months and years.”

Rabbi Ruvi New spoke at the ceremony as did Palm Beach County Commissioner and longtime Chabad supporter Steven Abrams.

The school which was hosted by the Chabad of East Boca and led by Rabbi New brought together 14 aspiring Rabbis from cities around the world (as far as Melbourne, Australia and Montreal, Canada) to complete their final year of Judaic education. Over the past nine months, the young men have had the opportunity to study in a unique communal setting, which has allowed them to facilitate and lead community outreach programs in addition to a rigorous study regimen.

With the presence of the Machon Menachem Yeshiva, community outreach programs in Boca Raton have greatly expanded to include weekly one-on-one “chavrusah style” or small group learning classes, Thank G-d It’s Shabbat dinners and discussions, as well as holiday-themed barbeques and celebrations around South Florida.
