As he does every year, HaRav Yaakov Bender, the Rosh Yeshivah of Yeshivah Darchei Torah in Far Rockaway, New York, greeted the approximately 1,000 children arriving to Yeshiva today – the first day of the school year.

With music playing in the background, Rabbi Bender embraces each child as they are his own children, infusing them with the love of Torah as they begin their new year.


  1. For all you naysayers that will say he does it for the cameras, I was there yeterday with no cameras or videos and he was doing the exact same thing. He loves his job and feels lucky to be able to have so many talmidim. How lucky we are to have such a Rosh Yeshiva!

  2. I don’t know Rav Bender shlit”a but what a lovely man! Such a show of Ahavas Yisroel to welcome the precious talmidim will iy”H set them all on the right path to Avodas Hashem B’Ahava.
    Wishing a Ksiva Vchasima Tova to everyone on YWN as well as those who are not!
