from Arutz Sheva:
During a happy and emotional ceremony on Thursday, Rabbi Adin Even-Yisrael Steinsaltz arrived in the Tekoa yeshiva for the first time since his stroke eight months ago.
Rabbi Steinsaltz came to participate in the yeshiva students’ celebration marking the completion of the Steinsaltz Institute’s explanation of Rambam’s (Maimonides) Mishne Torah, which was created together with the “Daily Rambam” organization.
The explanation on Mishne Torah took ten years to complete, and many of the yeshiva’s students and faculty took part in it.
The event began with a holiday meal. Some of the yeshiva students played musical instruments, and when Rabbi Steinsaltz entered, he was greeted with happiness and dancing. Afterwards, the yeshiva’s dean, Rabbi Michal Falk, spoke and blessed Rabbi Steinsaltz that he should merit to see the fruits of his students’ labor.
The son of the rabbi who serves as the director general of the shefa institute Rabbi Menachem Even Israel Steinsaltz says: “Every event connected with the rabbi’s life’s work helps him in his long rehabilitation process. The rabbi has already returned to work at the institute and works on his writings, which is not at all obvious”
