HaRav Yitzchok Raitport, a dear friend and loyal supporter of Oholei Torah in Crown Heights, visited the mossad this past week.
Rabbi Raitport gave a fascinating shiur on the first perek of Mesachtas K’suvos. The shiur was held in the Raitport Beis Medrash, a crown jewel of Chabad yeshivas worldwide.
At the conclusion of the shiur, Rabbi Raitport gave a personal message to the bochurim, saying “I had a part, a zechus, in the building of the Beis Medrash – but you- the bochurim bring in chayos, bring vitality to the beis medrash through your learning of Torah, which brings our family nachas, and surely brings much nachas to the Rebbe.”
The Bochurim of the zal expressed a tremendous appreciation to meet Rabbi Raitport, who generously supported the building of the beautiful Beis Medrash, together with his Rebbeztin, Shaindel Raitport.
Joined by members of the hanhola, Rabbi Raitport toured the campus, visited classrooms and met with various members of the faculty.
Throughout the day, Rabbi Raitport was visibly impressed by the vast growth of the mossad, and the care the rebbeim and principals give each individual talmid. He said how important it is to give the talmidim of all ages the proper support and care, so they will grow in a happy and confident manner.
It was obvious to Rabbi Raitport that the current campus buildings are being used to its maximum capabilities, and there is an urgent need for further building and expansion.
Rabbi Joseph Rosenfeld, Executive Director and long-time personal friend, profusely thanked the Raitport family for their ongoing support, and wished the family much hatzlocha, gezunt and nachas.
