On Rosh Chodesh Adar II, Mesivta Ateres Yaakov hosted two inspirational speakers. On Thursday, the talmidim were enthralled by the inspiring story delivered by Rabbi Yitzy Haber. Rabbi Haber provided guidance on emunah and simcha, all while entertaining all those in attendance. Rabbi Haber serves as the youth director at Aish Kodesh, and is a member of the kollel at Yeshiva Gedolah of the Five Towns.
On Friday, the yeshiva was visited by Rav Nissan Kaplan, a revered magid shiur in the Mir Yeshiva Yerushalayim. Rav Meir Braunstein, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Gedolah Ateres Yaakov introduced his rebbe, Rav Kaplan. Rav Kaplan spoke enthusiastically about the different challenges life sends to everyone and the opportunity of growth that those opportunities present. After the divrei chizuk, the talmidim and rebbeim lined up to greet and receive berachos from the venerated maggid shiur.
