Shira Yehudit Djalilmand

Follow Our Leaders

Rabbi Nachman and Miriam Zakon

Who is the posek and rosh yeshivah who reached the shores of Eretz Yisrael by swimming through the ocean’s waves? Don’t know? Hint: His shloshim is this week and he was niftar at the age of 101. Still don’t know? Then sit back and let me tell you about one of the poskei hador, the rosh yeshivah and gaon, Rav Shmuel HaLevi Wosner — the “Shevet HaLevi”

 

Going To Argentina!

Rachel Stein

Dear Avigayil, You’re never going to believe this! My Bubby called me yesterday and the news she told me made my day, my week, maybe even my whole year! She said, “Huvi, I’ve dreamed of going back to Argentina for many years now.” Bubby is from Argentina. “So now that both of our birthdays are coming up (did I ever tell you that Bubby and I have the same birthday?), would you like to go with me and see the country where I was born and grew up?”
