When the fifth grade talmidim of Yeshiva Darchei Torah opened their Gemaros for the first time, it was an extraordinary moment in their lives. Having already begun with Chumash, Rashi, and Mishnayos, they are embarking on what will hopefully be a lifelong journey on the majestic Sea of Talmud. To mark this milestone, the yeshiva invited the fathers, grandfathers, and even great-grandfathers of the talmidim to join them and their rebbeim for a festive seudah this past Sunday.
Rav Avrohom Halpern, menahel of Sh’or Yoshuv; Rav Moshe Weinberger, rav of Aish Kodesh; Rav Henoch Potash, a longtime Pre-1A rebbe in the yeshiva; Mr. Motty Klein, Mr. Berish Fuchs, as well as Rav Yaakov Bender, rosh hayeshiva, and Rav Dovid Morgenstern, menahel of the upper elementary school—all grandfathers of talmidim—addressed the crowd.
