Thousands of yeshiva bochurim attended a pre-bain hazmanim chizuk event at Cure Insurance Arena in Trenton on Monday evening.
The bochurim listened to various speakers who were mechazek them ahead of the upcoming summer bain hazmanim, particularly regarding the dangers posed by smartphones and technology in general.
The arena was the originally planned venue for the Adirei Hatorah event which was eventually relocated to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
As with many previous large-scale frum events, the National Chaplains Association provided their services in ensuring the event runs smoothly and all security arrangements are in place. Also as in previous events, Lakewood Shomrim members were on hand to provide security and assistance throughout the event.
