The Lens: Issue 968

Their departure from the dining room took well over an hour

AS yet another magical summer season began at Camp Simcha, campers and staff were honored with the presence of special guests. The Torah Vodaath Rosh Yeshivah, Rav Yitzchok Lichtenstein shlita and his Rebbetzin paid a visit to the camp’s upstate campus.

The Rosh Yeshivah spoke, relaying messages of chizuk to staff and campers, and he and the Rebbetzin were scheduled to leave shortly afterward. But their departure from the dining room took well over an hour.

The Rosh Yeshivah and Rebbetzin spent time engaging every single staff member and camper, giving them not only individual brachos, but taking pains to address each of their interlocutors in their native language. Transitioning easily from English to Yiddish to Hebrew and back, the Rosh Yeshivah bestowed not only beautiful, personal brachos on all present, but also a heartfelt lesson in ahavas Yisrael.
