The administration of Agudath Israel of America, in tandem with the organizers of its upcoming 93rd Annual Convention, are pleased to announce that theZ’kan Ha’ Mashgichim from Eretz Yisroel, Harav Dov Yaffa, Mashgiach of Yeshivas Knesses Chizkiyahu of K’far Chassidim, will be joining the Convention for Shabbos.
Born in Poland in the early 1920’s, the Mashgiach moved to Eretz Yisroel when he was seven years old, and as a teenager learned at the feet of such legendary Torah giants as Rav Eizik Sher, Rav Eliyahu Dessler, Rav Chatzkel Levenstein and the Chazon Ish. Shortly after his chasunah, he was invited by Rav Elya Lopian to serve as Mashgiach in Yeshivas Knesses Chizkiyahu, a position he has held for close to 60 years.
“What an incredible zchus it is for us to have the Mashgiach with us at this year’s Agudah Convention,” said Agudath Israel executive vice president Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zwiebel. “He is renowned in Eretz Yisroel and across the globe as one of the major mashpi’im of our time, a living link to the greatBa’alei Mussar and Gedolei Yisroel of generations ago. To have an opportunity to hear him speak and interact with him throughout Shabbos is an extraordinary privilege for which we are all deeply grateful.”
