Group from Plano, TX visits BMG in Lakewood
By Rabbi Nesanya Zakon on FB. What an inspiring and thought provoking day of study and touring at the largest Yeshiva in the world, Beth Medrash Govoha of Lakewood N.J. (my alma mater where I received my first Rabbinic ordination.)It was particularly wonderful to introduce the guys to the Rosh Hayeshiva, Rabbi Yeruchem Olshin who officiated at our wedding nearly 18 years ago! After having seen him once since 2000 he remembered me by name despite being dean of a Yeshiva of nearly 7,000 students! We also had lunch with a great visionary, Rabbi Aron Kotler, President of the Yeshiva. We are returning to Plano physically exhausted, spiritually enriched, inspired and having bonded as a group of not just friends but as nine brothers!!
