Suffern, NY… Yeshivas Ohr Reuven’s new era of growth and development will be marked at a 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner on May 23rd at the Sheraton Mahwah Hotel. The dinner will unveil a name change for Yeshiva Darchei Noam, the Elementary Division of Yeshiva Ohr Reuven, to Yeshiva Ketana Ohr Reuven, with a special dedication by the Yeshiva’s close friends, Moshe and Freeda Frankel, former parents and current grandparents of students in the yeshiva. Named for the late Rav Reuven Frankel zt”l, it is extremely fitting that Yeshiva Darchei Noam adopt the Yeshivas Ohr Reuven name honoring a remarkable man whose mesiras nefesh during the Churban Europe and dedication to Torah reflect the fundamental values of the Yeshiva.
The theme of the evening will be “Kindergarten to Kollel & Beyond” celebrating the superior Torah chinuch provided by the Yeshiva across all divisions: Yeshiva Ketana, Mesivta, Beis Medrash, Kollel, and of course, the accomplished alumni who embody the values of the Torah. In that spirit, the evening will honor the school heads for excellence in education, including: Rabbi Yosef B. Rawicki, Menahel Yeshiva Ketana; Rabbi Yisroel Gottlieb, Principal Yeshiva Ketana; Rabbi Ari Medetsky, Menahel Mesivta; and Mr. Boruch Rudinsky, Principal Mesivta. “As we are celebrating a special 25 year milestone, it is the perfect opportunity to show appreciation to the Yeshiva’s outstanding and dedicated hanhala,” explained Harav Bezalel Rudinsky, Rosh Hayeshiva. “Rabbi Yaakov Baldinger Esq., Talmid Muvhak, Musmach of the Yeshiva and current parent of the Yeshiva Ketana, will also be awarded ‘The Alumnus of the Year Award’ for his dedication and unwavering support of our mosad.”
Yeshivas Ohr Reuven is renowned in the community for providing a sterling Torah education to hundreds of talmidim over the past 25 years. Founded on the fundamentals of Ahavas Hashem, Ahavas Hatorah, and Ahavas Yisroel, these lofty principles continue to guide the institution. “Our motto: Once a Talmid, Always a Talmid, really embodies our commitment to Torah learning at the highest level, in a warm environment so that our talmidim stay connected for the rest of their lives,” said S’gan Rosh Yeshiva, Harav Benzion Brodie.
