Rabbi Grossman addressing Chaya Aydel students.


On Tuesday, Cheshvan 21, Rabbi Yitzchok Dovid Grossman spoke to Chaya Aydel Seminary students in Hallandale Beach. Rabbi Grossman is the chief rabbi of Migdal Haemek and the head of the Migdal Ohr Institutions.


Rabbi Grossman conversed with great warmth and with much love about the Rebbe, about the special, unique role of Jewish women and the mitzvah of ahavas Yisrael. He encouraged all the students to become shluchos (emissaries) of the rebbe and to take what they learned at home, in school, and in seminary and share it with other Jews who are not fortunate to have a proper chinuch (Torah education).

Rabbi Grossman shared his life story, how he started off being known as “the Disco Rabbi” by reaching out to young Jews who frequented discos and clubs. He also related many experiences he’d shared with the Rebbe.

Joining the one-hour talk with Rabbi Grossman was Rabbi Yossi Lebovics, principal of the Chaya Aydel Seminary, Rabbi Raphael and Rebbetzin Goldie Tennenhaus, co-directors of Chabad of South Broward, and Mordy Feiner, director of adult education of Chabad of South Broward.

Rabbi Grossman, who had a whirlwind tour of engagements and meetings in South Florida, emphasized that the time with the Chaya Aydel Seminary was his most important hour in Florida because the seminary students are the future Jewish mothers, future Jewish educators, and future shluchos.
