At Getzel's Shul
 Trucking away 

At times inspiration comes from stories of old, and sometimes it comes from your next door neighbor. ■ Years ago Shlomo E. and Yoseph V. started learning Chassidus Bchavrusa at 6:00 AM. in Getzels Shul. Slowly Minyan members joined their learning. The group has finished learning Samech Vov, and has this year begun learning the Rebbe‘s Mamorim. They just finished learning Taf Shin Yud Gimmel this past monday - that is three years worth of Maamorim in less than a year! At present the group has eight members. The learning is followed by Shacharis. - More inspirational stories coming soon at YagdilTorah.org.
