R’ Dovid Bloom To Host Annual Bunim Parlor Meeting, September 20

Rav Dovid Schustal

For 57 years, the community has convened in support of Beth Medrash Govoha at an annual parlor meeting hosted by the Bunim family. The tradition was started by Mr. Irving Bunim, zt’l, the legendary askan who will forever be remembered for saving innumerable lives during the Holocaust through his work on the Vaad Hatzala and the critical missions that he undertook at the behest of the Vaad’s guiding force, HaGaon HaRav Aharon Kotler, zt’l. After his father’s passing, R’ Amos Bunim, zt’l, continued his work and sustained the close kesher with Moreinu HaRav Aharon and other gedolei hador, devoting himself to Klal Yisrael’s rebuilding efforts and standing staunchly at the side of three generations of Lakewood roshei yeshiva.

Characteristically, R’ Amos would always open his home during the Aseres Yimei Teshuvah, giving the whole kehilah an opportunity to be mechazek Torah and merit its life-giving zechus before the Yom HaDin. This beautiful tradition has now been taken up by R’ Dovid Bloom, a community leader with his own historic family tradition of askanus and harbotzas haTorah. R’ Dovid is the son of the dearly remembered askan R’ Yisroel Bloom, zt’l, a lifelong oheiv Torah, talmid of Ponovezh, founder of Yeshivas Darchei Torah, yedid ne’eman of Beth Medrash Govoha, and one of the most gracious and dedicated Torah benefactors to grace Klal Yisrael in modern times. R’ Yisroel was niftar on erev Yom Kippur in 2005. May the zechus of his son’s efforts at this most meaningful time be an aliyah for his pure neshamah and a source of berachah for all who participate.

The annual parlor meeting for Beth Medrash Govoha will be hosted by the Blooms on 4 Tishrei, Thursday evening, September 20, at their home, 523 Cedarhill Avenue in Far Rockaway at 8:30 p.m. HaRav Dovid Schustal, shlita, rosh yeshiva, will address the olam.R’ Dovid Bloom To Host Annual Bunim Parlor Meeting, September 20
