Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rishon Letzion Harav Yitzchak Yosef Visits Flatbush

The Yeshivah of Flatbush had the honor of hosting the Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rishon Letzion Harav Maran Yitzchak Yosef. With cameras flashing and security watching, the renowned rabbi spoke about achdut and keeping up our yahdut. His speech, which was all in Hebrew, was about the connection that the luchot had from ben adam lechavero and ben adam lamakom, and how the structure of the kelim resembled its importance. He then connected that to us, the students of Yeshivah of Flatbush, in how our structure as Jews and our personalities within our neshamot resemble our duty in this world to continue along the path of a good Jew while holding on to the beneficial force of the Torah. He moved and inspired us all as one united group, and even threw a few jokes here and there. Giving a speech to the Yeshivah strengthened its standard as well as brought it to a higher level of spirituality. We hope that every student learns a lesson from that motivational speech, and that we should merit to see Maran Yitzchak Yosef another time in our school.
