Rav Yosef Efrati Inspires Kollel Cheshek Shlomo with Rare Shmuess In Lakewood

[Communicated] Kollel Cheshek Shlomo on Sunday was graced by an address from Rav Yosef Efrati shlit”a, one of the most foremost rabbanim in Yerushalayim and a close confidante of Rav Elyashiv zt”l for more than 45 years.

Rav Efrati, who is a member of Degel’s Vaad HaRabbanim, is the widely recognized mumcha on mitzvos hateluyos ba’aretz, and he leads a kollel of some 500 yungerleit in Har Nof where the halachos pertaining to those mitzvos are studied.

The address at Kollel Cheshek Shlomo provided a rare opportunity for the yungerleit to engage directly with Rav Efrati and glean from his wealth of insight, with his shmuess  covering a range of topics.

Seeing the yungerleit horeving in learning, Rav Efrati remarked: “Arayos alu mi’bavel!” – ‘Lions have risen from Bavel!’ expressing his profound joy at seeing the young talmidei chachomim who fill the Kollel’s walls with kol hatorah.

Rav Efrati further added that upon seeing the Kollel yungerleit, he is sure that this was exactly what Rav Aharon Kotler zt”l had in mind when he established Bais Medrash Govoha in Lakewood.
