IDF Chief Rabbi visits us

Rav Ronsky

As part of a city-wide Torah-learning initiative, Rav Avichai Ronsky, immediate past Chief Rabbi of the IDF and Rosh Yeshiva in Itamar, gave a shiur at Ohel Efraim Shul to a captivated audience.

Over 90 people in Ariel have committed to learning every day with the aim of finishing the whole of Shas (mishnayot and gemarot) by the end of the year.  At 6 intervals through the year, the group meets for a shiur by prominent Rabbanim.  On 22 Shvat it was Ohel Efraim’s turn to host and Rav Ronsky was invited by Rav Hillel to speak about Seder Nashim.

After presenting a fascinating survey of the inner strength of Jewish women throughout the Torah, Rav Ronsky revealed to the audience some of the halachic and ideological issues that face the religious IDF soldier today.  The evening concluded with a siyum and, obviously…food!
