Letters from the Rosh Yeshiva Shlit"a

#1 - THE IMPORTANCE OF BELONGING TO AN EHRLICHE חבורה.

בעזרת ה' יתברך-יום ג' פרשת תרומה, א' דר"ח אדר א', שנת תשע"ט


Dear….


Every time you send me pictures of the daily Shiur by you in Bloomingrove you truly gladden me.


I want you to tell me who attends every day, that way I can encourage those who come to keep on coming, and for those who don’t attend, I wish to strengthen them to establish a Shiur in Gemara and hold on to their connection with Anshei Shlomeinu.


One cannot imagine what he can achieve just by having devoted friends; as we see in Gemara, the holy R’ Chanina stated (Taanis 7.):  "הרבה למדתי מרבותי", I have learnt a wealth of Torah from my Rebbes; yet "ומחברי יותר מרבותי", from my Chaveirim I learned even more. We can see from this how important it is to have good friends where you can get together and strengthen each other.


Continue sending me pictures of you learning together, and send me details of what transpires in your Shul; I fervently wish that all my Talmidim remain together "איש את רעהו יעזרו ולאחיו יאמר חזק" Everyone should only strive to only help each other, and of course remember to focus on what is important – תכלית.


When Bochurim or Yingeleit get together, I always ask them to relate a story of הפצה; whether negative or positive, if the person took the Sefer with a smile, or if he tore it in front of them. If they got a good word while they were at it or unfortunately the opposite. Likewise, I ask them to relate a Maasa Fin ‘Tefilla,’ a story where they Davened to Hashem for something and Hashem helped them. This way we constantly refresh ourselves, and remind ourselves why we came to the holy Rebbe.


Show this letter to the Yingeleit who Daven and attend the Shiur.


May Hashem bless you with success in all your endeavors.
