[COMMUNICATED] On this day, exactly one year ago, Klal Yisroel was engulfed with sadness upon the petirah of Maran Rosh HaYeshiva Rav Aharon Yehudah Leib Shteinman ztz”l. Thousands crowded the streets of Bnei Brak as they accompanied the Gadol HaDor, while thousands more across the world mourned a sage who led our nation faithfully.
Even though he was already elderly, Reb Aharon Leib ztz”l embarked on a new venture to bring Torah to the world. He founded Yeshivas Geon Yaakov, situated in Bnei Brak, and led the Yeshiva with devotion for the next four decades of his long life.
Rav Shteinman was not only the Rosh Yeshiva; he was a loving father to each student. He dedicated his time to give many shiurim in the yeshiva, and put in much effort to educate the students in the way of Hashem and His Torah.
Today, on his first yartzheit, you have a special one-time opportunity to fulfill the final request of Rav Aharon Yehudah Leib Shteinman ztz”l – to support the yeshiva that he founded. If you didn’t make it to the levaya, if you never got the chance to step in to the humble abode on 5 Chazon Ish street: now is your time to show your gratitude to Rosh HaYeshivah R’ Aharon Leib Shteinman.
