Special Lecture by Rabbi Yeamans this Past Thursday
Rabbi Yehoshua Yeamans, Rav of BIOZ, delivered a va'ad at the Kollel this past Thursday, Rosh Chodesh Kislev.
He pointed out that we don't find any outgoing, glamorous stories about Yitzchok Avinu in the Torah. Rather, Yitzchok Avinu's avoda seemed to be the quiet, interalization of the teachings of Avraham Avinu.
Rabbi Yeamans suggested that perhaps this is the job of our generation, as well. Not necessarily to spread ourselves 'thinner', but to consolidate and internalize our Judaism in a solid way with more Torah learning, more Mitzva observance, and more internal joy in our homes.
Rabbi Yeamans expressed his appreciation to the Kollel for becoming quickly part of the 'fabric' of the community, and setting an example for steady and consistent Torah learning that is so essential to the Jewish People.
