Rav Chaim Stein On Historic Visit to Toronto


rav-chaim-steinRav Chaim Stein, rosh yeshiva of Telshe Yeshiva in Cleveland and one of the senior roshei yeshivos in the United States, is currently in Toronto for a landmark visit to community, where he will spend this Shabbos, Parshas Vayishlach.

Rav Stein, who is now in his nineties, ka”h, has lived a life totally devoted to Torah and the perpetuation of Torah. A gaon in Torah and a gadol in middos, our generation is fortunate to have someone of such stature living in our very midst.

As one of the few remaining links to the bygone world of pre-war Europe, Rav Chaim continues to serve as a beacon of light and inspiration to the entire Olam Hatorah and the wider frum community.

In Toronto, Rav Stein is being hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Menachem Bench, at their home, located at 53 Dell Park Avenue.

Last night, Rav Stein addressed Kollel Avreichim on Toronto, led by Rav Shlomo Miller and Rav Yaakov Hirschman. Rav Stein also spoke at Agudas Yisroel of Toronto, led by Rav Moshe Mordechai Lowy.
