Letters from the Rosh Yeshiva Shlit"a

#1 - WHEN EMPTY, THE CLASSES MUST REMAIN LOCKED UP.

בעזרת ה' יתברך-יום א' פרשת תרומה, כ"ח שבט, שנת תשע"ט


Dear…


I have requested a few times already if you can install locks on all the classes in the Yeshiva building; Chazal state (Gittin 45.): "לאו עכברא גנב אלא חורא גנב", meaning, the mice who enter one’s home are not the thieves, it’s the cracks and openings which allow the mice access who are the thieves. Similarly, only aggravation emerges when classrooms are left unlocked.


Last night there was a Sheva Brochos for a Talmid here in Yeshiva, and the following morning there was an offensive picture on one of the whiteboards, Hashem Yishmereinu; this only happens when classrooms are left open without accountability.


If this is a burden for you and you cannot carry through, let me know, and I will ask someone else to do it.


May Hashem protect me from harm, and protect our children from harm.
