Special Events to Mark 5th Yahrtzeit of HaRav Eliashiv zt"l

Commemorative gatherings and central chizuk rallies are taking place these days throughout the Jewish world marking five years since the eclipse of our guiding light, HaRav Yosef Shalom Eliashiv, who illuminated the world with his Torah and halachic rulings. In all of these assemblies, our Torah leaders and rabbonim seek to arouse the public in their duty to follow in his footsteps and his teachings. Many of these gatherings also combine the celebration of siyumim haShas of tractates studied during the course of the year for the soul of Rabbenu, whose fifth yahrtzeit falls on Shabbos parshas Mattos-Masei, the 28th of Tammuz.

It takes only one weak moment for one to succumb to Satan's net and be swept away in gushing waters to a place of almost no return. RChaimFeinstein
