My Machberes

Torah Vodaath Melaveh Malkah Yeshiva Torah Vodaath will hold its annual melaveh malkah on Motzaei Shabbos Parshas Va’eira, January 21, at Ohr Hachaim Viznitz Hall in Boro Park. The evening of chinuch and recognition will be graced by the presence of distinguished rabbonim and Torah leaders and honor the following friends of the yeshiva:

Yaakov Hirsch

Mr. And Mrs. Yaakov Hirsch will be the Guests of Honor. R’ Yaakov was a parent at Torah Vodaath for many years. Today the yeshiva is proud to have several of his grandchildren in its Yeshiva Ketanah. A devoted askan and businessman, R’ Yaakov, together with his wife Eleanor, have built a beautiful home of Torah and chesed. In addition to their full time dedication to bikur cholim and other chesed achievements, they welcomed orphans into their home and brought them under the chuppah.

The Mesivta Parents of the Year Award will be presented to Mr. and Mrs. Menachem Levitin. R’ Menachem was a talmid of the yeshiva from his earliest years. When it came time to be mechanech his sons, he and his wife chose Torah Vodaath to help mold their boys in the derech of which they are so proud. R’ Menachem and his wife, Chaya, embody the goals and ideals of the yeshiva.

Mr. And Mrs. Yitzi Weis will be recognized as Yeshiva Ketanah Parents of the Year. Yitzi spent many years b’koslei haYeshiva as an outstanding talmid. His wife, Simi, is heavily involved in the yeshiva’s PTA, serving on its presidium, devoting many hours to the yeshiva. They are very involved in the chinuch of their children and praise the hanhalla of the Yeshiva Ketanah for all the efforts that are extended on behalf of the talmidim.

Shmuel Avigdor Finkelman, z"l

This year’s melaveh malkah is dedicated to the memory of a special and unique couple, Mr. And Mrs. Shmuel Avigdor and Selma Finkelman. R’ Shmuel Avigdor became mekushar to the yeshiva as a young talmid, a relationship that continued throughout his life. The Finkelmans were the first shomer Shabbos family to move onto their block in Kensington, just to be close to the then-new campus of Torah Vodaath. Their sons were all talmidim of the yeshiva. Their children, Rabbis Mordechai, Shimon, and Dovid Finkelman, Rabbi Mordechai Anteby, and Rabbi Yaakov Mandel are all well-known mechanchim in the metropolitan area and remain close to the yeshiva. They are dedicating the melaveh malkah in the memory of their parents who were devoted heart and soul to the Yeshiva.

A special tribute will be made in memory of Mrs. Zlata Uhr, a”h. A dedicated employee of the yeshiva for more than six decades, Mrs. Uhr cared deeply about the talmidim, rebbeim and the yeshiva. Mrs. Uhr was also well known for her decades of service in Camp Bnos and had a special relationship with its staff and campers. Her sudden passing several months ago left many in the yeshiva stunned and saddened.

Building on the success of previous years, an informative and exciting program will be presented. Rabbi Mordechai Finkelman, mashgiach ruchni of Yeshiva Ohr Hachaim, will deliver a special address titled “Powerful Positive Chinuch Lessons in Turbulent Times.” To keep the presentations brief and focused, the rest of the evening’s presentations will be presented via pre-recorded video.

This year, 40 couples were helped. The organization needs the support of the extended Jewish community so that it can continue in its important work.

In the introduction to the first volume, R. Katz discusses the Torah ideal, arguing that the Torah’s laws are intended to craft the perfect man and are not to be regarded as ends unto themselves.

A highlight of the evening was the video produced by the Kleinman Family Holocaust Education Center on the legendary Agudah askan Reb Elimelech (Mike) Tress, a true Jewish hero.

Until recently his films were largely forgotten, but with their release last year on DVD by Re:Voir Video in Paris they are once again available.

Though the CCAR supported the Jewish right to emigrate to Eretz Yisrael, it strenuously objected to defining Palestine as the Jewish homeland.

“Well, you are also part of this class! If someone drills a hole in the boat, the boat will ultimately sink, and even the innocent ones will perish as well. The whole class must be punished!”

Nouril concluded he had no choice: He had to become more observant.

I find his mother to be a difficult person and my nature is to stay away from people like that.

Does standing under the chuppah signal the end of our dream of romance and beautiful sunsets?
