This past motzei Shabbos, current and incoming Yeshivas Toras Simcha parents were delighted to welcome Rabbi Hillel Shepard to the YTS family. Both Rabbi Mandel and Rabbi Shepard shared inspiring words of chizuk, both quoting their namesake, Hillel Hazaken. Among many other things, Rabbi Shepard explained from both Hillel Hazaken and Parshas Teruma that our chinuch goal is to inspire a foundation of ahava in our children – to love Torah and mitzvos – so that they love to do what they will ultimately need to do throughout their lives. Torah founded on simcha! That is the dream of Toras Simcha that has been and will continue to be so special to the entire Toras Simcha family.
