In 1967, following the Six Day War, Rabbi Chaim Brovender began teaching Torah to young people in various venues in Jerusalem. In 1976 he launched Yeshivat HaMivtar for men and Michlelet Bruria (later known as Midreshet Lindenbaum) for women - unique institutions which have educated thousands of students for decades. In 1985 these institutions joined with Ohr Torah Instututions. In 1999 Rabbi Brovender founded ATID to help train the next generation of leaders for Torah education.
Join us as Rabbi Brovender's students and teaching colleagues from these past forty years pay tribute to this remarkable Rosh Yeshiva, his career, and his vision for Jewish education.
