Please note the mens program was in the bais medrash located on the first floor of the shul.Rabbi Avraham Eliezer Kviat spoke beautifully all about the one most important thing which was his fathers legacy,the importance of shalom. This was followed by the mattisdorfer Rav’s hartzige speech about the niftar’s charachter,his middos tovos, and of course his seforim. Rabbi Kaluszyner, a son in law delivered a fiery speech!
    The last speaker was Rabbi Cinnamon Rav of Khal Bnei Torah. He reminisced growing up in the shul and his connection with Rav Kviat, throughout his life.

    Rabbi Yair Hoffman,who told amazing encounters with Rav Kviat.
    Rebbitzen Baila Kviat,a daughter in law,who spoke beautifully on the parsha,and the things she learned and saw from her shver.
