Avodas Hakodesh

Thank you for your article about Vaad Hayeshivos. It is important for your readers, especially the younger generation, to know about these important institutions that were set up by the Gedolei Hador of the previous generations, to further their avodas hakodesh under the guidance of our Rabbanim and continue to play an important role in Eretz Yisrael today.

Besides Vaad Hayeshivos, there is also Chinuch Atzmai, Shuvu, Peylim and Agudas Yisroel, to name just a few.

I’m attaching a picture of a certificate my father, z”l, received from the Vaad Hayeshivos during the 10 years he lived in Santiago, Chile (Jan. 1946 – Nov. 1955). It was signed by Harav Isser Zalman Meltzer and Harav Zalman Sorotzkin, zt”l, and describes the various activities of the Vaad at the time.

I am sure this may be of interest to your readers who enjoyed your original article.

Kol tuv.
