Yeshiva Bochur Who Was Imprsioned In Japan Becomes a Chosson


grMazel tov to Yaakov Yosef Grunewald, one of the bochrim who was imprisoned in Japan on becoming a chosson. His kallah is a daughter of R’ Yudel Yaakov. The L’chaim was held in Bnei Brak this week, attended by many rabbonim including Rabbi Moshe Shaul Klein Shlita, rav of the Ohr Chaim neighborhood as well as many of those who worked tirelessly for his release.

It was an emotional moment when one of the other former prisoners, Yoel Ze’ev Goldstein arrived to wish him mazel tov. Goldstein is getting married in the coming weeks in Manchester IY”H.

  1. Its nice to see some stories have a happy ending…..mazel tov and kol tov to the chasson/kalah and may they pack carefully for their honeymoon trip.

  2. To No. 4.

    Its news because of the time, effort and $$$ that hundreds, if not thousands, of yiddden committed to pidyon shevuim for this bochur. I’m not sure his chevrah have learned from his experience but for those who worked so hard for his freedom, this was a wonderful story to read.
