Tonight: Azkarah at Yeshiva Torah Vodaas L’illui Nishmas Rav Belsky zt”l


It is with great difficulty that talmidim and followers of Rav Chaim Yisroeol Belsky zt”l, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah Vodaas, have returned to their regular schedules. At Torah Vodaas, one can see the tremendous feelings of loss on the faces of the roshei yeshiva, hanhallah, rabbeim and talmidim.

This evening, the yeshiva will hold an azkarah at 8 p.m. The speakers will be talmidim of the rosh yeshiva, Rav Leibel Wulliger, Rav Yosef Eisen and Rav Yaakov Zev Smith.

Further details about a major asifa to be held at the yeshiva this Sunday will be forthcoming.

The annual Torah Vodaas Flatbush Event/Melava Malka, originally scheduled for this Motzoei Shabbos, has been postponed to Motzoei Shabbos Parshas Tetzavah, February 20th.

While it is almost impossible to record the thousands of stories associated with the rosh yeshiva zt”l, the family and the yeshiva are trying to do the best possible. If you have a particular photo, letter or story that you would like to share, email to
