Rabbi Dr. Aaron Rakeffet-Rothkoff, Professor of Rabbinic Literature at Yeshiva University’s Caroline and Joseph S. Gruss Institute in Jerusalem, visited Lubavitch Headquarters on Monday.
The noted scholar, author and teacher who has taught thousands of students throughout his over 55 year career was given a tour of 770 Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights.
Rakeffet-Rothkoff, who has lectured extensively about the Rebbe and Chabad, began with a visit to the Rebbe’s room and stopped by the WLCC broadcasting room accompanied by Rabbi Chaim Boruch Halberstam. He also met with the Rebbe’s secretary Rabbi Leibel Groner, and showed him his latest sefer, Rakafot Aharon Vol 4.
Of special interest to him was the tour of Agudas Chassidei Chabad Library, adjacent to 770, where he was showed around by its director and chief librarian Rabbi Berel Levine.
Rabbi Levine gave him his Sefer Tikunei Mikvaos, and Rabbi Rakeffet-Rothkoff in return presented his Sefer to the library.
