The gathering was held at the home of R’ Mordechai Schron and attended by numerous rabbonim, including Rav Aryeh Malkiel Kotler and Rav Yeruchem Olshin, roshei yeshiva of Beth Medrash Govoah.

    wonderful to hear the rosh hayeshiva speak from his pure heart. while one loves to hear from him brochos, his mussar is so much sweeter. may hashem bless him with arichas yomim
