  1. Yidden all over the world are asked to continue reciting Tehillim and learn Torah for the famous Magid of the generation Harav Shlomo Brevda Shlita, who is in need of a Refuah Sheleimah. He has been hospitalized at a medical center in the USA.

    Rav Brevda is one of the most well-known Maggidei Shiur and Darshanim and has delivered thousands of Drashos in Jewish communities worldwide.

    Rav Brevda is the author of numerous Sforim, including volumes on Yomim Tovim. His writings on the Torah of the Vilna Gaon and the Gaon’s Sforim in Aggadah and Kabbolah are particularly well known.

    The name for Tehillim is: “Shlomo Leib ben Miriam”

    Please continue Davening for Shloma Leib ben Miryam

  2. Rabbi Brog was my dear friend and mentor. I attended his mussar class at the Yeshiva Chaim Berlin. He walked me down the aisle at my Chatuna. Rabbi Brog will surely be missed.

  3. He was one of the kindest, most gentle, and inspiring teacher for this baal tchuvah. He epitomized Hashem’s love for every Yid. I didn’t know what Talmud was when I first came to his class but earned going to the Siyum haShas this past year the hard way. I will be forever grateful.
