ABOUT MEVAKSHEI HASHEM
The Rebbe, Harav HaTzaddik Usher Yisroel Lissauer Shlit”a founded Mevakshei Hashem in a pursuit to save struggling bochurim from falling into the streets of Bnai Brak. The Rebbe’s unique background, being born and raised in Manhattan to traditional parents, and his challenges to set out on a journey that leaded him to become a Talmid Chochom in all chelkei HaTorah, fluent in Yiddish, Hebrew as well as English, gave him the experience and the capability to help Bochurim in need of support. The success of the Rebbe is unbelievable, when broken parents come in with a smile and thank the Rebbe for the support and encouragement that he gives for these young potential gedolei Yisroel. The Rebbe says that every Bochur can succeed, because the Torah of Hashem is for every Jew, and even one that works for a living, can be very precious to Hashem. Many young teenagers went through drastic changes and were saved even from the streets of Tel Aviv after leaving the Yeshiva premises and the Beis Midrash in Bnai Brak continues to thrive giving chizuk and care for every Jewish soul from any background without discrimination.
BEIS HAMIDRASH MEVAKSHEI HASHEM
The Beish Hamidrash is located on Rechov Kehilloth Yaakov 63 in Bnei Brak. Daily Tefillos Shiurim, and chaburos for Bochurim and Avreichim bring to the Beis Medrash a rich spiritual atmosphere.

The Davening is performed with great intensity and at the highlight, the incredible Divrei Torah that are said usually with tears, at Seudah Shlishis. After Havdollah in Beis Midrash, the bocurim return to Yeshiva, excited for the coming Shabbos by the Rebbe.
