On Monday morning, an uplifting meeting took place between the chief rabbi of Iran, Rabbi Yehuda Gerami, and the Bobov-45 Rebbe, Rabbi Mordechai Dovid Unger, in Boro Park. The visit was coordinated by Rabbi Zalmy Lowenthal, director of CKids International, and Rabbi Shmuly Butler.

The Bobover Rebbe was amazed to hear about the cheder and overnight camp in Iran, and wished to hear about the Kevarim of Mordechai and Esther. Rabbi Gerami shared how he visits the kevarim every year on erev Purim. The Bobover Rebbe was deeply moved by all that is being done for the Yidden in Iran and gave his warmest regards.

Rabbi Butler then gifted the Bobover Rebbe a personalized copy of the new volume of Yemos Hamoshiach B’halacha by Rabbi Avrohom Gerlitzky. The Bobover Rebbe was impressed by the in-depth lomdus of the sefer’s discussion of Moshiach concepts.

The group also visited the Lelover Rebbe of Boro Park who was likewise touched by the Yidden of Iran’s dedication to Yiddishkeit.

  1. Dear Jewish Orthodox Rabbi

    My Persian name is Marjan Ghahvehei. My real name is ESTAR
    I grow up in Hamedan. I have been an Orthodox Jewish Girl during Islamic Republic of Iran. I have been very proud of that.
    I got my LLM European and Global law from Pompeo Fabra University amid Covid 19 – Online. The last not the least after Mr Shimon Peres ‘s death I served at the Tomb of Esther and Mordechai. After the tomb was attacked on spring 2020 I was obliged not to attend at the “Tomb” and cut my relations with the Jews.

    I would appreciate it if you could just pray for me.

    Best Regard
