Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

A standing-room-only crowd of over 100 students attended a Tehilim memorial assembly for terror victims in Israel—including yeshiva student Ezra Schwartz Hy”d, recently murdered on the way to distributing food packages to Israeli soldiers at the Gush Etzion junction, and Rabbi Yaakov Don Hy”d, a seminary teacher, on the same day—held at Queens College on Wednesday, December 9, organized by Limor Brody, who is also a student senator at the college. The assembly was held under the auspices of the OU-JLIC, directed by Rabbi Robby and Shoshana Charnoff. Rebecca Gottesman assisted by arranging for Ezra’s roommates at Yeshivat Ashreinu, Michael Benzaken and Jason Geller, to address the overflowing audience. They were in the van at the time of the terrorist attack. Brody was initially motivated to approach the Charnoffs to hold a Tehilim assembly since Rabbi Don had been her seminary teacher at Emunah V’Omanut, ironically having taught her current events of Israel.
