As is his minhag on Sukkos, HaGaon HaRav Gershon Edelstein Shlita arrived in Yerushalayim on Wednesday morning, the second day Chol Hamoed Sukkos, to give a Yomtov shiur. This year, for the first time, the Ponavezh Rosh Yeshiva also stopped in Telshe Stone to deliver words of encouragement to the tzibur in the chareidi city too.
A kabolas panim was held for the Gadol at the entrance to Telshe Stone at 11:00AM with musical accompaniment after which the rav addressed the community. The event in Telshe Stone was in response to a request from HaGaon HaRav Shulman and the city’s mayor, Yitzchak Ravitz.
After the visit to Telshe Stone, the rav continued to the Ramot Aleph neighborhood, to Beit Knesset Shaare T’vuna, where the children of the community waited to greet him.
