Hagaon Harav Shmuel Kamenetzky Shlit”a Makes Rare, Historic Appearance At Maamad Adirei Hatorah

Hagaon Harav Shmuel Kamenetzky shlit”a, the zkan roshei yeshiva of America, on Sunday evening traveled to the Adirei Hatorah maamad at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, marking his first appearance at a public event since suffering a stroke just over a year ago.

The rosh hayeshiva’s appearance at the maamad despite the difficulties the trip entailed for him underscores his unwavering appreciation for talmidei chachomim and yungerleit, as well as his appreciation and support for the machzikei hatorah who support them.

Rav Shmuel, 99, suffered a debilitating stroke in May 2023, just hours after attending the levaya of Harav Meir Hershkowitz zt”l in Lakewood. Since that time, the rosh hayeshiva has been undergoing rehabilitation and slowly returning to his regular schedule. However, he remains in a weakened state and continues to be in need of our teffilos.

Please continue to daven for the rosh yeshiva, Harav Shmuel ben Itta Ettel.

  1. Awesome photos and videos, especially the entrance and electrifying reaction of the olam when R’ Kamenetzky was escorted in. I’m surprised, however, that many of the rabbonim on the dais on either side of the podium were seemingly engaged in chatter with one another while the gadolim were presenting their divrei torah and chizuk.

  2. I seemed to notice the Lubavitcher speaker Y.Y. Jacobson at the bottom of the last photo. What was he doing there? מה ענין ליובאוויאש אצל אדירי התורה-בית מדרש גבוה??
