Last week, Rabbi Mendel Aisenbach hand-delivered several Challahs to three elected MPs of Canada’s new government on behalf of Yeshivas Chabad Lubavitch of Toronto and its Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Akiva Wagner.

The Yeshiva, which is now entering its 20th year, has made an indelible mark on the Toronto landscape. Not merely an educational facility, the Yeshiva is molding the leaders of tomorrow.
Every week, the students visits thousands of local Jews, from all walks of life, and provide encouragement, guidance, inspiration and support. From hospital residents to business owners to professionals to senior citizens, countless people await these visits, and have described them as the highlight of their week.
The alumni of the Yeshiva are already serving as leaders in communities throughout the world, from Australia to Israel to Western Canada.
Rabbi Wagner was very eager to have Rabbi Aisenbach meet with these representatives of Canada’s new government, to get to know them personally as well as formally introduce the Yeshiva to them. The rabbis and representatives set up some times that were convenient for them to meet, so that they can work on coordinating common developments in the future.
