Ohr Elchanan Rosh Yeshiva Gives Shevach Vehodaah To Hakadosh Boruch Hu


fire-at-ohr-elchonon-ltzeirimDear Matzav.com,

On behalf of the rosh yeshiva of the Ohr Elchanan network of yeshivos, Rav M.M. Chadash שליט”א, I would like to acknowledge the Matzav.com article about the unfortunate mishap in our Givat Shaul branch this past week (see Matzav.com‘s report here). If we could ask that you help us let your readership know that we give shevach and hodaah to the Ribono Shel Olam that in His infinite kindness, none of the talmidim, nor any other persons, were hurt and that the physical damage was restricted.

We are further thankful to be able to convey that the Fire Marshall’s investigation reported no negligence or carelessness or any lack of proper supervision on the part of the yeshiva.

Thank you for your kind consideration,

Rabbi Mordechai Younger

Yeshiva Ohr Elchanan

  1. why do i not believe that this letter was sent to matzav?


    Actually, we aren’t sure. Why, indeed, do you not believe? Kindly explain. Or better yet, why don’t you call Rabbi Younger himself and ask him?

  2. God is telling this yeshiva that it must improve their ways, they are obviously doing something very wrong to have been punished this way.
