Chanukas Habayis at Yated Ne'eman
by S. Bruchi

A chanukas habayis in honor of Yated Ne'eman's spacious new offices for the Hebrew edition was held two weeks ago. Taking part in the ceremony were members of the Yated Ne'eman Vaada Ruchanis as well as the committee secretaries, members of the board of directors and the newspaper staff. The new headquarters is located on 108 Jabotinsky Street in Bnei Brak.

Members of the Vaada Ruchanis delivered words of greeting, expressing their esteem for all those who share the daily burden of publishing the Hebrew paper which is read by Jews the world over, among them eminent talmidei chachomim. The following rabbonim spoke: HaRav Chaim Shaul Karelitz, the ga'avad of Shearis Yisroel; HaRav Shmuel Boruch Deutsch, HaRav Nosson Zochovski and HaRav Tzvi Friedman.

The rabbonim stressed the uniqueness of Yated Ne'eman, a newspaper that was founded by the Kehillos Yaakov, HaRav Yaakov Yisroel Kanievsky, zt"l and ylct"a Maran HaGaon HaRav Eliezer Menachem Shach, shlita. They added that since its founding, Yated Ne'eman has become the prime newspaper of the bnei Torah community, loyally fulfilling the mission of maranan verabonon by its dauntless presentation of pure hashkofo and absolute obedience to da'as Torah.

In their words of greeting, members of the Vaada thanked newspaper director, Rabbi Yaakov Labin, for his tremendous efforts to transfer the newspaper to its new quarters, as well as for the many improvements he has made in the newspaper over the years. They praised the staff of editors and writers who bring the news to tens of thousand of readers of a paper al taharas hakodesh.

They also thanked the members of the board of directors, who, at the behest of maranan verabonon zt"l and ylt"a have borne the burden of founding the newspaper and have accompanied it over the years through thick and thin, enabling it to reach its current status as the leading newspaper in the chareidi community.

The members of the Vaad HaRabbonim said that we should continue to strengthen the newspaper and to increase its circulation so that it reaches everywhere. The urgency of bringing da'as Torah and pure Torah outlook into every Jewish home is especially important in light of the recent call of gedolei Yisroel to the Torah community to avoid newspapers not under supervision of gedolei Yisroel.

The chanukas habayis of Yated Ne'eman in its new quarters demonstrates the newspaper's impressive success and will accord much impetus to its future development and growth. The sense of involvement in a sacred mission which accompanies the editors, writers and staff of the paper has brought it to the eminent status it currently occupies in Jewish centers throughout the world.
