Why A Bread Blessing On The festival Of Matzahs?

The first challah symbolized my holy father, HaRav Yisroel Shurin, zt”l, who taught in Yeshiva Chaim Berlin and Bais Yaakov for twenty years, was the rav of Congregation Mogen Avraham in Efrat, Israel for twenty-four years, and wrote the Hebrew page in Olomeinu magazine for sixty years. His yahrzeit was on Shabbos, the 27th day of Adar.

The second challah symbolized his father-in-law, my zaidy, HaRav Yaakov Kamenetsky, zt”l, whose yahrzeit was two days later, on the 29th day of Adar. I remember that my grandfather would not make major decisions for the Torah world without first consulting with my father. The two were truly Lechem Mishna, two great loaves of bread, as were the Lechem HaPanim in our holy Temples. I miss them both so deeply.

May their merit protect us in these turbulent times.

Chag kasher v’sameach to all.
