The Lens: Issue 941

In the end, they celebrated a far more personal simchah

A ripple of excitement surged through the crowd at the chasunah when Rav Yerucham Olshin walked in. The kallah was the daughter of Rabbi Sender Kaszirer, rosh yeshivah of Mesivta of Eatontown, and the chassan was the son of Rav Avrohom Miller, rav of Lakewood’s Bais Medrash Kol Yehuda, and grandson of Rav Shlomo Miller shlita. The Rosh Yeshivah of Beth Medrash Govoha had come to honor the mechutanim with his attendance.

After dancing with the various family members, Rav Yerucham left the circle. But rather than head for the doors, he headed straight to another dancing circle — that of the talmidim of the Mesivta of Eatontown — and spent another 45 minutes there, dancing with each bochur individually.

The bochurim had come to celebrate their rebbi’s simchah, but, in the end, they celebrated a far more personal simchah: the confirmation of their own invaluable self-worth.
