  1. Rav Yaakov Nayman had a fall last week and was not able to attend. He did however have a video taped message that was played. This was an unbelievable maamad of kavod hatorah that just completed. Read more about it in your Yated this coming weekend!

  2. I was so inspired to see Rav Stein, zol ehr gezunt zein. He said the greatness of Rav Keller and Rav Levin is that they know what the ikar is and what is the tofel. That means they know what is supposed to be the foundation and what should remain the side points and they have been able to maintain that clarity all these years. Kayn yirbu!
