The readership of the Blog is invited to a shiur that will be taking place this Sunday April 3, at 7PM. The shiur will be given by the noted author Rav Yechiel Goldhaber of Eretz Yisrael. He has authored many wonderful articles and works on a wide range of topics most notably Minhage Kehilot about customs, Kunditon about the Titanic, and the Cherem on Spain, and 2 volumes of Ginze Yehuda, a collection of assorted letters of various Rabbis. 

The subject of the Shiur is חיפושו של ר ישראל משקלוב אחרי עשרת השבטים, and it will take place in Brooklyn at 3114 Quentin Rd, Brooklyn, NY 11234, on the second floor, upstairs at Mizrahi Bookstore. Men and women are invited. The shiur will be in English.
