Last night was the Breuers Yeshiva annual dinner. Meta shared a cute story. It was getting too difficult for Rav Breuer to attend the dinner. The hotel staff advised the family about a cargo elevator in the hotel, large enough to drive the Rav’s (Jerry’s) car into and alight in the ballroom itself. And so they did. When the Rav entered it was all the fuss! (audio here)
The dinner once held at the Hotel Roosevelt, later at the Hotel Americana and then for many years at the Hilton at Rockerfeller Center (today called Hilton Midtown), and finally at the Marriot on Times Square- before moving to New Jersey.
The Hilton Midtown writes on their website that theirs is the largest ballroom in Manhattan!
