L’chvod Rav Avi, Rabbi Lopatin, Rabbi Linzer, Rabbi Love, Rav Katz and the rest of the faculty and staff, Obviously, we are grateful that you have created a holy place of learning for both Chai and Tzachi. But do you realize the profound influence you have had and continue to have in our lives? Thank you for helping us to create an open orthodox home where Torah is observed consciously. Thank you for modeling for us how to live the Torah that we learn. Thank you for helping us to raise our children with the knowledge that they could question anything that did not make sense to them, and that that is a proper and healthy attitude to apply to all aspects of Torah living. It brings us tremendous comfort and gives us strength knowing that Yeshivat Chovevei Torah is here to inspire and guide all of us.

With heartfelt thanks,
Estelle and Harvey Posner
Parents of Chai Posner (YCT ’10) and Tzachi Posner (YCT ’17)

Special message from the President

Dear Friends,

These are difficult days for those who love Israel and are yearning for peace, security, and respect for all who dwell therein. We are in mourning for the loss of our boys and other victims of terror against our people; in mourning for a murdered Arab boy; terrified at the possibility that Jews could act in such a revolting, vengeful way; and so sad that - if this is indeed the case - we have lost another bit of innocence as a people. Not that we are collectively guilty, God forbid, but in our hearts lies the horror that from our Jewish womb something horrible and evil may have emerged. For me personally, this is a time of self-reflection as a Jew and as a lover of Israel. Amidst all this - especially amidst all this - Israel needs our strength, commitment, and devotion more than ever before! We are with our brothers and sisters in Israel - with all decent people in Israel: Jews, Muslims, Christians, and any others making up the human mosaic that is our blessed Holy Land - for we pray together for peace and unity regardless of our politics or beliefs.


Rabbi Asher Lopatin
