 Simcha Gross’s biggest problem? Too many attendees.

When an unprecedented 850 people showed up to the second Tanach Yom Iyun at Yeshiva University last December, Gross and Yehudah Bernstein, his fellow coordinator, had to scramble to find seats. And they couldn’t be happier.

"I believe in the passionate pursuit for religious truth," says Gross, who began formulating the program when he arrived at YU as a sophomore, and saw the first Yom Iyun take place last March.
