I agree, Ed. Where many kiruv orgs leave off in terms of demographics, shuls, community outreach programs (for example some community kollel models) and individuals step up to plate. The hard part is always letting others understand the beauty of Torah Judaism and that it's never too late to learn.

This is indeed a great story. It also makes me think of the rather unfortunate tunnel vision inherent in so many kiruv organizations, whereby the focus is solely on college-aged individuals. I know of so many Jews in their 30's, 40's and 50's who, G-d willing, will live many more years - with the potential to sanctify Hashem's name during those years. Yet these individuals are ignored by these organizations. Yes, there is Partners-In-Torah, but I strongly feel there are not enough avenues for kiruv for individuals who could and should be good observant Jews, yet have the "misfortune" of no longer being in their early to mid-twenties.

Yasher koach Menachem, and good luck! I spent two years learning at Darche Noam, so can assure you that it's a great place to get back into learning!

Thank you all for your good wishes and brachos! I actually wrote this a month ago. Elul Z'man is over and it continued as wonderfully as it started. I am looking forward to starting the next Z'man after the chag. Chag Somayach!

Menachem, What an important posting. I can totally sympathize with you about the difficulties of learning. Your courage is inspiring, thank you!

Yasher Koach and Mazal Tov-That is how Chazal and Rishonim understood Mitzvas Talmud Torah for someone in your situation and that of many others-learn as much as possible in your spare time in a yeshiva.

My eyes just welled up with tears reading this. My bracha to you: May you always remember the sweetness of the first day of this new beis medrash experience and may it carry you for many productive years of learning to come! (And may you find a way to fund it for as long as you have the passion and inspiration - Amen!)

Hashem should bentch you with good health and long life so that you can make up for the "lost" time, and much more.
