Growth and Inspiration Series: Rabbi Joseph Beyda

Recently we kicked off our in-house Growth and Inspiration Speaker Series. Throughout the year Yeshivah of Flatbush students will be hearing from administrators and teachers from the Yeshivah on various topics. Assistant Principal, Rabbi Joseph Beyda kick started the program by discussing role models and heroes. He opened up with a short film about Aaron Feuerstein, who was the past owner of Malden Mills. Mr. Feuerstein is famously recognized for his selfless business decision where he continued paying his thousands of workers their salaries, even though a fire had burned his entire company to ashes. Rabbi Beyda explained how Feuerstein's decision has turned him into one of his heroes. Rabbi Blumenthal, coordinator of the program, wrapped up the discussion by mentioning the anniversary of Chacham Ovadia Yosef's passing, who passed away two years ago.
