After delivering a shiur at the new Chabad Yeshiva in Suffield, Connecticut, Rabbi Yitzchok Hanoka of OK Kosher expressed his amazement and deep admiration for the new yeshiva.
Rabbi Hanoka, who serves as the Senior Rabbinic Coordinator responsible for the Tri-State region at OK Kosher Certification, delivered a shiur on kashrus topics at the Suffield Yeshiva on Tuesday. The shiur covered the topic of ma’acholei akum, exploring its background and practical application in-depth.
The shiur was given in the Zal of the yeshiva, which is located in the campus’ expansive library. Originally built for the previous school housed in the campus, the library has room for thousands of books, and is steadily being filled with seforim. Plans are in place to create an extensive and prestigious library, with thousands of seforim available for the bochurim and hanhala to use.
Following the shiur, Rabbi Hanoka expressed his amazement with the new yeshiva, saying that he was “blown away.”
“Rabbi Hanoka related that he himself grew up in the New England region, and expressed his delight at the growth of Torah so close to his childhood home,” Rabbi Benzion Bluming, dean and menahel of the Yeshiva campus and mashpia of Shiur Beis, told Anash.org.
