After a fast day, the boys could be excused for staying home, but the students of Yeshiva of South Shore wouldn’t think of it, gathering at a local shul for an optional Mishmar, showing that every other night, they come because they want to, not because they have to.

And over at Lutzk in Lakewood, we find the same, lomdim gathering at the nightly Homework Kollel to sing the greatest song of all.
