Rabbi Noach Orlowek, Shlita visits Yeshiva Aharon Yaakov/Ohr Eliyahu, Los Angeles.
Rabbi Noach Orlowek, shlita, Mashgiach of Yeshiva Torah Ore, Jerusalem, and world renown mechanech and counselor, visited Yeshiva Aharon Yaakov/Ohr Eliyahu in Los Angeles, as he does yearly, to mechazaek the talmidim, administration and parents of the Yeshiva. RavOrlowek, spoke to groups of elementary and middle school children on the subjects of Achdus, Hakaras HaTov, Being and Keeping a Good Friend, and How to Change. All of the topics were connected with Parashas HaChodesh and Pesach. Rav Orlowek was particularly impressed with the zest and comfort that the talmidim and talmidos had in interacting with the Rav and asking questions.
In addition to his talks with the students, Rav Orlowek taught the weekly Shiur for Women on Sefer Tomer Devora as the shiur completed the first chapter of this important sefer, an accomplishment that required two years and over 40 shiurim to complete, taught by the Yeshiva’s Menahel, Rabbi Shlomo Goldberg, himself a talmid of Rav Orlowek. Finally, the school administrators were able to bring their questions to RavOrlowek, most notably on the subject of how to give children the inner strength in their early years to combat the onslaught of challenges that they are likely to face in later life. The Yeshiva is already putting Rav Orlowek’s advice into practice and looking forward to next year’s visit.
