The world-renowned Rav and Gaon Rabbi Moshe Wolfsohn, Mashgiach Ruchni of Yeshiva Torah Veda’as and Rov of Congregation Emunaus Yiroel in Borough Park, marked his 90th Birthday with a Farbrengen at the yeshiva Gedolah of Greater Miami together with the Students and Hanholoh.
The farbrengen opened with Chassidishe Nigunum. Rabbi Wolfsohn then explained – in his unique style – the great importance of gratitude, thanking Hashem for everything he does for us – even the most minor. He tied this concept to the “Modeh Ani” of every Jew, which is connected to a Jew’s essence.
Rabbi Wolfsohn then requested that Rabbi Ahron Kovetz – who is Rabbi Wolfsohn’s personal attendant and disciple for close to 30 years –share some stories about Rabbi Wolfsohn’s personal connection to the Rebbe. He also shared episodes – to which he was witness first hand – where he experienced open miracles from the Rebbe.
Rabbi Leib Shcapiro, Rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Gedolah, and Rabbi Avrohom Korf, Head Shliach to the state of Florida, both shared words of Torah, and thanked Rabbi Wolfsohn for gracing the Yeshivah by coming to celebrate this auspicious birthday with those present, and for sharing his words of inspiration.
Noted community leader Mr. Avi Shaulzohn shared words of Brochoh, and elaborated of Rabbi Wolfsohn’s special connection with the Rebbe.
The Farbrengen greatly inspired the Students at the Yeshiva, with each one renewing his commitment and Hiskashrus to the Rebbe, and strengthening their Avoda in Davening, Torah study and Yiras Shomayim.
