Tolna Rebbe Visits L.A.

The Los Angeles community recently hosted a weeklong visit by the Tolna Rebbe of Yerushalayim. The Rebbe visited all the main Jewish communities from Pico-Robertson to Hancock Park, and the San Fernando Valley.

 

Upon arriving in Los Angeles, the Rebbe met with the city’s rabbis at the home of Rabbi Elie Ryzman, followed by his address to a communitywide gathering. He stressed the importance of caring for others, working and bonding with one’s children, and being a part of the Jewish community.

During his stay, the Rebbe visited the large throng of Yeshiva Rav Isacsohn Toras Emes Academy talmidim, followed by an appearance at Yeshiva Birkas Yitzchak. He then addressed the mechanchim of Los Angeles, offering them inspiring ideas on how to be better mechanchim. The Rebbe also spoke to the large Hebrew-speaking community of Israelis and others living in the Valley.

 

Other stops by the Rebbe included more yeshivos and communities, leading to his Shabbos stay in the Hancock Park area. After a Friday night tish, the Rebbe spoke on Shabbos morning at the Young Israel of Hancock Park and participated in a motzaei Shabbos communitywide melaveh malkah.

            On the Sunday before his departure, the Rebbe delivered a shiur at Rabbi Zvi Ryzman’s home. The shiur preceded a hachnasas sefer Torah dedication and presentation by Sidney and Marcia Teichman to the Young Israel of Hancock Park. The hachnasas sefer Torah’s program included the completion of the writing of the letters, an outdoor parade, dancing in the shul, listening to the Rebbe’s words, and partaking in a seudas mitzvah.
