HaRav Yitzchok Kolodetsky, the son-in-law of the Sar HaTorah, HaRav Chaim Kanievsky, and Rosh Kollel of Kollel Derech Emunah, visited Yeshiva Tiferes Moshe during his trip to the Queens community. Upon arrival at the Yeshiva, the Rav was greeted by boys in grades K-5 lining the hallways. As the Rav walked through the halls, he gave all of the boys the brachah given to Yaakov Avinu of HaMal’ach HaGo’eil.
Rav Kolodetsky then addressed the boys in grades 6-8 in the Yeshiva Lunch Room. The Rav was m’chazeik the boys in a number of topics, including the chashivus of a mitzvah, z’man k’rias Sh’ma, kibud av va’eim and V’ahavta l’rei’acha kamocha. Even though the Rav addressed the boys in Hebrew and they only fully understood the message with Rabbi Uri Becker’s translation, the boys were spellbound by the Rav’s animated heartfelt message. The boys all came up and gave Shalom to the Rav.
Yasher Koach to Mr. & Mrs. Bernie Shafran and family for hosting Rav Kolodetsky during his stay in Queens.
