VIDEO: TLS Speaks with R’ Yitzchak & Mrs. Shaindel Cohen as they Make Aliya after nearly a Half Century in Lakewood

1VIDEO: Reb Yitzchak and Shaindel Cohen, old-time Lakewood residents living in Lakewood for nearly a half century, left yesterday for Eretz Yisroel to make an Aliya.


Peretz Eichler spoke with the Cohens ‎about the Lakewood they saw when the Yeshivah community consisted of just a few families, and when everyone in the town still knew each other personally.

Reb Yitzchak and Shaindel are also the parents of Zalmy Cohen, who moved from Lakewood approximately 15 years ago to Miami, where he founded the Miami Hatzolah.
