Rav Hershel Schachter with visitors from Yeshiva Har Torah

On Monday morning, November 9, the eighth-grade boys of Yeshiva Har Torah visited Rav Hershel Schachter, rosh ha’yeshiva at Yeshiva University. The students worked hard preparing for the question-and-answer session with Rav Schachter, writing index cards with questions, as well as reviewing the Gemara that they are learning this year. The boys first stopped in the beit midrash at YU, taking in the sweet sounds of Torah and admiring all the students engaged in Torah study. Upon meeting Rav Schachter, the boys were immediately taken by his presence and vast Torah knowledge. He asked the boys in-depth questions on the Gemara and inspired them to deepen their understanding by questioning their answers. During the second part of the Q&A, the rav fielded many questions from the students, covering such topics as Thanksgiving, aliens, hilchotShabbat, science, eating fish, and many more topics. After the learning, the boys all lined up to shake Rav Schachter’s hand and introduce themselves. The boys then went across the street for lunch, enjoying some delicious pizza as a fitting end to a great morning of learning.
