Morning drive to Belarus to visit the famous yeshivas that existed here before the Holocaust. See Radin, a small town, where Chafetz Chayim founded the Yeshiva, which attracted students from all over Europe. The Jewish cemetery and the matzevah of Chafetz Chayim and the memorial to the local Jews murdered during WWII.
Visit Volozhyn and the renowned yeshiva established in 1803 by Rav Hayim Volozhiner, a disciple of the Vilna Gaon. A fire swept Volozhyn in the middle of the 19th c., but the “mother of yeshivas” was untouched.
