TOMO’s 2021 Annual Dinner

Tomo for life… Impacting Our Community


We are excited to announce that the 2021 Toras Moshe Annual Dinner will be LIVE at the Newark Marriot Hotel. After a year and a half of quarantining and social distancing, we are very much looking forward to joining together in person with Rebbeim, alumni, talmidim, the entire TOMO community together! The dinner will be a great opportunity to reconnect, share with Rebbeim, catch up with friends, and give a live shalom Aleichem to our beloved Rosh Yeshiva, shlit"a.

Our co-chairmen, Daniel Heyman and Daniel Cohen, share a lot of enthusiasm for the event and have been working to ensure that the dinner will serve as an enjoyable reunion that will reconnect and highlight the impact our alumni have on their communities.

Particularly in the last year and a half, our sense of community has become even more important, and knowing that we as Toras Moshe alumni we still have the opportunity to maintain strong ties with the Yeshiva and with fellow alumni, strengthens us and allows to do more for the communities in which we all live and the Jewish world at large.

This year’s dinner will be honoring the classes of 2002 and 2003 combined, and three extra special honorees will be in attendance this year, all of whom have left a stamp on their surroundings with their efforts, and with whom we feel privileged to share and honor.


This year's honorees:


      Rabbi Yissochor-Dov Eichenstein, Guest of Honor

Rabbi Eichenstein, a native of Chicago, and the Rebbetzin’s nephew, was raised in an atmosphere of serving the k’lall. A talmid of his uncle the Gaávad of Yerushalayim, Rav Tuviah Weiss, shlit"a, it was under him that he developed his derech in Torah and halacha.

Today, he serves as the revered rav of Merkaz Torah u’Tefillah – the largest shul in Baltimore, where over 1,000 people daven daily, and where over 15 Daf Yomi shiurim are hosted on premises, many of which are delivered by ToMo alumni.

It is not surprising that many Toras Moshe graduates are drawn to this vibrant Torah center, and a group of ToMo alumni meet there nightly for a dynamic chaburah.

Rav Eichenstein’s shul reflects the mission of Toras Moshe — the primacy of Torah coupled with the care for every individual. It has gained a name as a place where everyone feels at home and is a unique kehilla which fosters personal growth.


Rabbi and Mrs. Moshe Kaufman, Keser Torah Award

A grandson of Rav Moshe Feinstein, zt”l, Rabbi Kaufman is a talmid chochom of world renowned stature, who was responsible – among other things – for publishing the final volumes of the Igros Moshe, for the benefit of the Torah world. He has also authored four volumes of Mesoras Moshe — a compilation of Rav Moshe Feinstein’s oral p’sakim that were not included in the Igros Moshe.


An alumnus of the class of 1997, Rav Kaufman’s years of shteiging at Toras Moshe were acatalyst of his subsequent achievements, and today he serves as a prominent posekand dayan in Chicago, where his sensitivity and clarity on halachic issues has made him the address for hundreds of Chicagoans, who approach him for guidance daily. Included among them are business owners and entrepreneurs who have made him their halachic go-to for all business-related dilemmas. Rabbi Kaufman has even been allocated office space at the corporate headquarters of a large local firm, where he receives visitors once a week for halachic consultations


The Rav’s razor sharp ability to analyze sugyos b’iyun, exploring the views of the Rishonim, right through to their practical application in halachah, is what enables him to pasken unerringly, and without ambiguity. A stellar talmid of Yeshivas Toras Moshe, Rabbi Kaufman's development and abilities emerged from the mahaleich of our yeshiva, joining with the derech of his eminent grandfather, Rav Moshe Feinstein, zt”l.


To quote Rav Kaufman: “I’ve no greater pleasure than learning a sugya b’Iyun and coming up with the clarity that allows me to rule halacha l’ma'aseh, the mehalach which I learned in yeshiva".


      Rabbi and Mrs. Dovid Horwitz, Leadership Award

A graduate of the class of 1988, Rabbi Horwitz learned for ten years in Toras Moshe – first as a bochur and then as an avreich. He was in charge of the halachah seder at the yeshiva for several years, and currently serves as the Rosh Kollel of the Community Kollel of Ra'anana, though his harbatzas haTorah goes far beyond his geographical confines.


The community Kollel in Ra'anana is a center for the Anglo-saxon community, and serves as a beacon for learning and growth for the entire community. Chavrusos, shiurim, sedarim all come to the Kollel, as baalei batim and avreichim join to grow under Rabbi Horwitz's warmth and inviting personality. The founder of the Kollel, Rabbi Horwitz's has created an environment of growth in Torah for an entire community.

Rabbi Dovid’s father, Reb Yisroel Horwitz, zt"l, was a dedicated, long-time friend of the yeshiva, and it is our great delight to be able to announce the dedication of the newly expanded Beis Medrash in his father’s name.



A few logistics…

      ·         This year, the event will be held at the centrally located Newark-airport Marriot hotel, to make it easier for more of you to attend. Save the date December 12, 2021! 

Daniel Cohen has a message for us all: “It’s so important to remain connected to the place where you’ve grown in the past, where you can continue to grow…”.


      ·         The dinner's organizers are doing whatever they can this year to enable more alumni to attend than ever. Check out the special price that they’ve arranged at the Marriot hotel for dinner attendees.

For details, contact the Marriot Hotel Newark, and say you are attending the Toras Moshe dinner.


      ·         Choose your shiur! Thisyear, all your favorite Rebbeim will be delivering shiurim before the start of the general program, so that every alumnus can attend his shiur of choice, and reconnect to that special experience of sitting around a table with his Rebbe and chaveirim. For details, make sure to contact the committee that is organizing the shiur you wish to attend…


     ·         Encore! Once again, this year, TOMO alumnus Rabbi Baruch Levine will be premiering a new musical composition at the dinner – definitely worth waiting for!
