A memorial event marking the shloshim since the passing of Rabbi Yisroel Friedman obm will be held on Thursday, April 30 at 8 pm.
The program is being coordinated by Oholei Torah School, and will be live-streamed by Chabad.org and aired on COLlive.com.
Rabbi Yisroel Friedman served as the senior Rosh Yeshivah at the Talmudic Seminary Oholei Torah in Brooklyn, N.Y., for more than 50 years; he became known as the very personification of “a Chassidisher Rosh yeshivah.” He was also a member of the Central Committee of Chabad-Lubavitch Rabbis (Vaad Rabonei Lubavitch Haklali).
He taught generations of students, infusing them with a love of Hashem, a love of Torah, and a love for each Jew. He personified deep attachment to the Lubavitcher Rebbe and the Rebbe’s mission, and inspired hundreds of his students to become teachers and spiritual leaders themselves. He effectively impacted hundreds of thousands the world over with his combination of keen intellect, deep love, and unparalleled devotion.
The Shloshim program will be addressed by Rabbi Avrohom Shemtov – Chairman of Agudas Chasidei Chabad, Rabbi Moshe Wolberg – Rosh Yeshiva Tomchei Temimim Kfar Chabad, Israel, Rabbi Moshe Shmuel Stern – Rosh Kollel Strikov, Israel and cousin of R’ Yisroel, Rabbi Lazer Gurkow – Shliach of the Rebbe to London, Ontario.
The program will be highlighted by a Video presentation of carefully curated recollections and stories about Rabbi Friedman.
